"All of this, in one little girl's bedroom."
I have a very vivid memory of my first time watching this film. 5 years ago. Must have been 2 am. I was young, watching it on my laptop screen inside a blanket with my headphones on. I wish i could go back to that old self, through the space-time continuum, just as he was about to hit play, shake his whole body and shout at him the importance of what he's…
"I like simple pleasures... Like butter in my ass or lollipops in my mouth. That's just me. That's just something that I enjoy."
Because of the documental (and obviously explicit) nature of the movie I can see why the core idea and essence sometimes eludes people. It became even more apparent with the second watch (that i think has kickstarted another paul thomas anderson binge) which has made me appreciate the script even more.
Heard Anderson say in an interview…
"Right now, he needed sleep..."
Was really anxious to see holland in this, although by the time he came on to the screen i was already into the movie enough to not let him distract me.
Jason Clarke was obviously the highlight for me and pattinson, albeit a little wacky at first, didn't disappoint either.
