sometimes my arms bend back
“i’m a vegetarian”
why why why didn’t i watch this when i was 15? god i really needed this. so many amazing lines, the candy color palette and when i tell you i fucking screamed when julie delpy (credited as “lipstick lesbian”) showed up....a must-see for people interested in queer cinema i’m really glad i finally caught up
don’t get why people love this so much. the concept was interesting but the film itself is just pretentious. i guess depression is depicted in a realistic way, thanks also to kirsten dunst’s performance, but the whole thing is so forced and artificial. i feel like lars von trier tried too hard to make something meaningful. also, i hate that it was shot almost entirely with handheld cameras.
i saw carol about three years ago for the first time. i was starting to get into films back then, so i must say i forgot about it quickly. now that i rewatched it, i’m at loss for words. i’ve been trying to write a review for half an hour but i’m not ready to express my thoughts properly yet. i’m just gonna say that this is one of those films that are not films, but experiences.
