Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

Three days in the life of a woman, three days in the life of a mother, and a life of quiet hopelessness.

This movie invites you to spend with the main character all the moments we are not used to experience from someone else's life and the moments we tend to ignore from our own life. It's a very long movie and never trust someone who says it isn't boring, it can be a tough watch but it's definitely an experience and one of the most interesting concepts for a movie. The static camera shots are amazing. I can't believe Chantal Akerman was 25 when she made this, I'm looking forward to watch more of her movies.

The only more boring and less good version of this movie is the quarantine movie version of me watching this movie while I eat a bag of popcorn and arequipe bread, then having to wait 30 minutes trying to fix my wifi by turning the router off and on, continue to watch the movie when it finally works, eat some more, take pics of my dog sleeping, eat lunch, finish the movie, sit on the couch for a good 10 minutes staring at nothing and proceed to text my mom to say I love her.

The only right way to watch it I think.
