Groundhog Day ★★★★★

Some films diminish over time. Some films stay the same. And some films grow.

Like this one. A sweet little rom-com, watched first time at face value: laughing with Bill Murray, yearning for character growth, fawning over the idea of Andie MacDowall's character, too perfect for words, feeling happy when it all works out.

Then I watch it again and again and again and it's so much more: a sci-fi metaphysical mind-melter. The horror of forever repeating that one day, the prison; yet also the capacity for growth, the freedom that being a god in your own little universe brings.

Genius.
