I DON‘T GIVE A DAMN ‘BOUT MY BAD REPUTATION! ψ(｀∇´)ψ
if you know me, chances are you know dogfight is my favourite film of all time. it’s the film that introduced me to river phoenix, and as cheesy and ridiculous as this might sound, he introduced me to so many different and new aspects to the world. needless to say the film, its story and characters lay very close to my heart since the first time i watched it.
eddie’s humour, immaturity, and brokenness. rose’s wisdom, musical talent, and selflessness.…
often times i’ll find myself not being able to watch a film through in a single sitting. i get distracted easily, i get bored, i’m not hooked enough. but this film? i didn’t pause it once. it was just so beautifully executed.
since the film opens with a very intense, loud scene, i kind of expected the ending. however it did not feel corny, nor did it feel out of place or out of character. watching ruben adapt to and accept his new reality was very emotional, yet heartwarming. love and appreciate the authenticity of this film.
