    (500) Days of Summer

    ★★★★

    Maybe it wasn't Summer's fault for Tom's misery. Maybe Tom was too blindsided with his desires to actually consider her. But I also sympathize with Tom that ambiguity is very frustrating.

    how strange to see my name on the ticket and people asking me “are you here for ‘Mirai’?”

    ★★★

    Watched it again to give it another chance.
    I can see why this film got all the hype and excitement.
    But I just can't love it as much as all the hype and excitement.

    Edgar Wright has his own unique storytelling/directing ways that consumes too much humour and romanticisation.

    We need more Sky Ferreira.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★

    a perfect, lazy, (seemingly) worry-free world.
    perfect to the point where conflict remains within oneself.
    perfect to the point that the film leaves you dreaming.
    a story of first love - love that is full of passion, yet impossible and impermanent.

    i'm having a hard time figuring out all its high appraisal.
    maybe i just never experienced, therefore can empathize with the emotions - elio's life(style).

    but it kept me watching. full two hours without major climax and hollywood schemes. maybe that's because this is the genre and aesthetic that i love. (this is what all hong sang soo's films are like anyways.)
