Third act took kind of a bizarre turn, like what I would imagine the trial of a capital insurrectionist would be like.
Every now and then, I'll see a movie that cuts to my core and changes me. This is one of those. I know that's a bold statement to make but I cannot get over how much I love this film.
Joaquin is Joaquin as always but what Jonah Hill did in this was incredible. It felt like this was the role he had been waiting to play for years.
There's great commentary in this on disability, addiction, enlightenment, friendship and afterlife. Maybe it's because I work with people with disabilities but this effected me greatly.
My favorite of the year, hands down.
Magical. Simply magical. This is the closest thing to a perfect film I may have ever seen. Equal parts compelling narrative and stunning art piece, The New World is breathtaking. A was taken aback by every part. Take 3 hours and watch the director's cut.
P.s. Ms. Klicher's first film role and she got to kiss both Christian Bale and Colin Ferrell in 2005. That's big.
