erik reeds’s review published on Letterboxd:
this is just... man idk how to even enunciate how much this means to me. i connected super hard to it when i saw it as a teenager but rewatching it today in new york is just such a trying experience. like most people, i wanted to strangle lisa sometimes, and i'm sure if we would have talked then she would want the same too every now n then. it kinda goes back to damon's character talking about how experiences you didn't expect would lead to much, things you don't like maybe you'll find something in em. and when lisa and her mom go to that opera that maybe neither of them really wanted to go to and embrace after this sort of disconnect, this one moment of warmth that we know is just temporal is going to power you through the next few months.
