(Guest) Wow

I haven’t felt this emotionally vulnerable in a long time, and at first glance I’m worried about the consequences of writing this. Also at first glance: Girls will love this movie. Guys will feel as if their heart has been ripped from their bodies and converted into celluloid.

This movie cut me deep. At first glance it’s a pretty standard boy-meets-girl romcom with a cute trailer and lots of indie artists you’ll love on the soundtrack. And you get lots of indie music and happy joyous moments that make you remember all the happy joyous moments you’ve had with that one girl you still kinda can’t get over, who of course I met one summer, and I’m not going to say anymore lest she get freaked out and think I’m not over it. I am over it. But this movie does such a great job of capturing all the moments that happen from the time you first see her, through the courtship, the pain, the loss, the grief, how it fucks with your job, your life, and how you assign all these grand hopes and dreams to something that was never really anything at all, when you finally, inevitably accept that truth that it just wasn’t going to happen, and you can’t force it through willpower or wanting it enough or elaborately choreographed dance sequences even though her smile totally makes you want to break out into an elaborately choreographed dance sequence.

This movie, despite having a “this is totally fictional” disclaimer at the beginning, rang truer with me on an emotional level than anything I’ve ever seen. I didn’t cry. I’ve seen movies that have made me cry and the movie simply isn’t going for those emotional moments that make the tears well up. But when you first start swooning for a girl, and you try to make it into what you want, even though it’s only what it is… those are the moments that it captures, flawlessly and effortlessly. I don’t know what higher praise I can give than to say that the writing, acting, and direction of this film tell the story at such a level that it resonated with the very core of who I am as a formerly lovestruck guy in my early 20s, as I’m sure you can tell by the fact that I just sprayed emotion all over the page. If you’ve ever had feelings for someone, this movie is unmissable.

(Guest) The way we always wished it was done

Caught a free screening of 500DOS today in NYC and, wow. I’ve been following the updates on this movie for months now, watched over a dozen talk show, interview, and radio appearances and I can truly say my confidence was 100% justified. Everything I wished I’d seen in romantic comedies before was opened with a new light of freshness and purity in 500DOS. Joe and Zooey shine through and the supporting actors are ‘perfectly adequate’ for their roles. From the writing, to the cinematography, the music, to the aesthetics, 500DOS came through. Overall, I would say it was better than Eternal Sunshine, and in the same ballpark as Garden State. I just can’t wait until it releases on DVD so I can watch it again, and again.

Wonderful Zooey Deschanel on Conan

So, so good to see Zooey Deschanel herself, not in character, on Conan O’Brien. Thanks to Megan for sending in this clip; I missed it when it aired the first time and this is must-see.

New Official (500) Days of Summer Poster for the UK

Empire has exclusively posted the UK poster and promo for 500 Days of Summer.

From Empire Online:

As you can tell from the fact that neither of those people is called Matthew McConaughey, this may be romantic(ish) but it’s an indie film rather than the usual sort of rom-com.
