Went to the theater and watched again. I still like it quite a bit. Maybe more?
This movie is kind of a mess. It's a disaster, really.
The acting is superb. I was fully engaged the entire time. It's a really good film. It's a total mess, and all over the place, and I'm not sure that's bad.
I hear a lot of people saying it's the best film of the year, and although I don't agree, I can see why people say that.
It's an incredibly complex film, wonderfully crafted. Ups and downs. Laughter. Pain.…
I have a lot of feelings.
Ok, now let me talk about this film. Lady Bird. First - Saoirse Ronan. Obviously she just carries the film because she is the film, being the visual centerpiece and mouthpiece of the writer/director.
The music - especially in the 2nd half. Anyone who knows me knows I love Jon Brion. Somehow I missed that he was the composer, but halfway through the film I was like - ummm is this Brion? Yes. Yes…
A few things about this film.
1. It's way too long.
2. The acting, directing, and technical aspects of the film are exactly as they should be. Fantastic.
3. I'm not sure why I watched it apart from the aspects mentioned in #2 above.
4. Don't do drugs.
5. People are horrible.
That is all.
