A charming, moving, and VERY nostalgic little indie film that ends up feeling just a bit... inconsequential. While it is very good there’s not much going on here beyond the chemistry of the excellent cast and the surface-level pleasures.
Part of me is like wow this movie wants to be Mulholland Dr. so bad but then the other part of me is like... this is cinema baybee
Anyway this probably doesn’t deserve 5 stars but I have a soft spot for difficult polarizing films that nearly collapse under the weight of their own ambition so to me it’s a MASTERPIECE ok leave me alone
Ok I fucking loved this, call it pointless, empty, boring or whatever but all those things would be wrong. It’s Tarantino’s most tender film. To the point where it was almost... moving? I never thought I’d say that about a Tarantino film, which is the reason this film is elevated as one of the best in his filmography for me.
ALSO each actor brought their absolute fucking A-game I could watch each and every one of this film’s characters for hours
