Had to leave the theater last night during the first ten minutes due to it being absolutely filled with obnoxious f*cking talking morons. I'm seeing it Monday during the middle of the day.

BUT, if you do, the highlights for me, apart from Naked, are All or nothing and Topsy Turvy.
You know what, I'll take that as a challenge to find in myself the humanity to relate to his simpler, more humane films. Will start with Secrets and Lies just cause I've already downloaded it and then watch the ones you suggested.

It wasn't just that. We were forced into the front row due to the stupid f*cking "reserved seating" thing where half the theater buys them online and doesn't show up until 20 minutes after the movie starts. It was too close. Hurt our eyes.

Watched Life Is Sweet and absolutely loved it. It shows that he gets actors to rehearse improvised scenes and characters for months before even writing a script, that's how he gets this pitch perfect tonal precision from the entire cast (of brilliant actors). My favorites were the clinically depressed trial-sized sous-chef, a pretty Felliniesque character that fits perfectly in this world; the daughter who is a depressed and insecure leftist shut-in blurting out buzzwords out of context; Timothy Spall's character, I mean the costume design alone there...





I saw some online reviews complain that Leigh "didn't tie the loose ends" and while I think it's an expectation we should rid ourselves of, it's also spot on in that it drives home how free from screenwriting formulas his scripts are.

I finally saw Everything, Everywhere, All at Once and I haven't laughed and cried so much over a film in ages. A fantastic reverberating punch to the heart and mind and senses

Ja pretty much the best theatre experience I've ever had.

I heard that the rock scene didn't have subtitles at some theaters lmao
