It was crap.
An inspirational speaker (David Thewlis) becomes reinvigorated after meeting a lively woman (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who shakes up his mundane existence.
Which was pleasant.
it was CRAP
All were "fine" or "quite-good"
is this a game to you, son?
i watched the program the other night. despite it being about bicyclists it was pretty abysmal.
also it was the first thing I've ever watched on amazon prime and it was REALLY shit. not just the film selection (which is obvs really shit) but it fucking hangs and stutters and cuts out constantly. load of shit. and it deliberately doesn't work on a chromecast since they want you to buy the amazon version of it. bunch of cunts.
dunno what the fuss is about
Guess you either like that or you don't.
but on balance he's more bad than he is good i think
BJM - 8/10
Adaptation - 9/10
Human Nature - not seen, dunno 5/10
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind - not seen, looks shit 2/10
Eternal Sunshine - not a big fan, 6/10
Synecdoche - good first half, abysmal second half 5/10
Anomalisa - don't fancy it, myself 4/10
and would have BJM, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine as solid 8/10s
Anomalisa was fine but underwhelming, not seen the others
but that second half, maaaaaaaan
It really requires you to just go with it and there are fucking loads of points where it probably should have lost me on paper, something about the tone of it all that just kept me with it though and I find the ending completely devastating emotionally without really knowing why.
second half is when it really gets going.
I don't understand why you're getting this film wrong so badly.
Ant, Brick and Synecdoche 4 lyf. THIS IS WHY WE FORGED SUCH A GREAT UNDERSTANDING THAT ONE TIME IN MIDFIELD.
not brick again
It was basically a kid's show. Total crap, but fairly mindless.
Thought it was brilliant
people just pretend to like him so it looks better on their online dating profiles
about this lass what made tiny doll-sized versions of crime scenes. was dead good and narrated by john waters.
found it utterly bleak, *mild spoilers* from reading the synopsis thought it would be quite bleak, but would be one of those damaged people meet and heal each other, where as really it is about the psychological problems that lead to that kind of fantasy, bit too realistic, prefer cosy escapism in my viewing. Also having the main guy as british was a bad choice, bit too wallace and gromit.
*proper possible spoilers*

what is this
but the ending was far too sudden for me. I felt naked and exposed.
like, the way it just rips away the sympathy you were feeling for the customer service guru main character and leaves you questioning yourself, thinking how maybe you're just insular and judgemental and the problem.
thought this was fairly commonly used on here in the past
about a nerdy D&D group infiltrated by some tech bro douche.
It was a 4/10
