I get what this movie is going for... but my god was this ever a drag. Thankfully it's perfectly shot by Dreyer to keep it going. And the script is very interesting. But when the actors and actress seem bored to death, act like statues, and avoid eye contact at all costs, it kinda kills it. I wish I could have loved this like others but overall I'm left disappointed.
How the actual fuck did I have this at 3 and a half stars...
I remember for some reason being annoyed by the music and how Adam Sandler acted in this on my first watch. But now I connect with Adam Sandler and love the music. How the music goes from being very off beat to enchanting and classical (almost sounds like Amarcord) just fits the moods of the movie perfectly.
It's great how you can go back to a film after a period of time and appreciate it more and connect even more. Especially when it becomes a new favourite.
