There are perfect films, and there are films where the way it makes you feel is perfect.
Like Inherent Vice, but comprehensible and funny. The Gosling-Crowe duo ("there are no two angrier birds"-Crowe) are electric and funnier than you'd expect. Some sequences feel a bit drawn out and parts of the script could benefit from a little more trimming, but otherwise it's a hit. Gotta give some props also to 13 year old Angourie Rice who magnificently holds her own against the more established actors.
everyone's too wrapped up in admiring the mindblowing stop motion world to fail to realize how absolutely shit the story is
ETA: why is everyone lapping up the most embarrassingly blatant and basic MPDG fantasy of our post-John Green world? I can't believe this is the same guy who wrote Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind.
