    Robin Williams is fucking heartbreaking. Nathan  Lane is way over the top, but also tremendous. Love Hackman and Wiest — that they don’t have a “gays probably aren’t so bad, are they?” moment makes this movie feel very progressive.

    What to do with the Hank Azaria performance? He is arguably doing the best work of his career, but in a role that’s almost as stereotypically offensive as Apu. 

    Also, why do Dan Futterman and Calista Flockhart play 20 and 19 respectively when they are both clearly 30 years old? If they actually looked the right age, it might make the two of them somewhat less annoying/despicable.

    This movie made me feel like I was seeing the color green for the first time.

    Director’s cut is a little too long — though all the added bits are very interesting, the pace of the film becomes just a little bit slower and less intense. 

    Still my favorite movie of the year so far. 


    On second watch, I found myself feeling oddly moved by Dani’s interactions with Pelle and the other members of the village — it’s refreshing to watch people care for her in a real way, look into her eyes, smile at her. That’s not to say that she isn’t also being manipulated by them... more on this another day.
