fell asleep halfway through at bfi. great cinematography and landscapes as ever - not so good dialogue and pacing/storyline. sorry wkw
Ummm this was a lot worse and rlly quite dodgy than I remember it - yes, give us sexual transgression but not in this incredibly male gaze/patriarchal way. I’d remembered it as this beautiful escape from English summer, filled with great music and interpersonal politics but this time round it just felt flat, cheesy and a bit creepy at times. Would avoid tbh - only up is the resilience of the Italian people who have to cope with these insufferable characters
*Holds up skateboard* “we just have these, this isn’t who we are” sets the scene for one of the most genuine, unpretentious skate vids i've ever seen - from scenes of friends messing around to the effortless framing of karens and security as members of the cast, it all just feels free and full of careless abandon, blessed summer days amidst this winter. Great editing, great music, another celebration of life and pure joy - thanks LW for the recc x
sometimes you need to watch cute Spanish grandparents talk about their experience in the Spanish civil war to restore your faith in libertarian communism. Rlly interesting documentary stuffed full of observations, old footage and dreams of utopia.
