Rachel Getting Married. 7.5/10

Didn't blow me away. Anne Hathaway was fantastic, and there were some great scenes, but this isn't a movie that is haunting me after I've seen it. I didn't find the camera work irritating, but I did feel that way about the sound editing. At some points, I couldn't hear the dialogue at all.

City of God. 9.5/10

Not the first time I've seen it, but it's still so fantastic. Great work in every respect, and it kind of made me want to see City of Men, although I know that the reviews for that one have not been as good. Regardless, City of God is one of those movies that I think most people miss, much to their detriment. It's just fabulous, and so difficult to watch at points.

I saw The Visitor tonight.

I gave it a better rating; 7/10.
I really liked the performances and the story line was very good. Simple, yet satisfying.

American Teen

I was surprised how invested I was in all of the teenagers' lives in this one. I forgot I was watching a documentary after a while.

Really, really well done.

I watched it with actual teenagers.

They said it was pretty much one of the most inaccurate representations of what high school is really like that they've ever seen, but I liked it.



I did some research on the girl who moved to SF after graduation. She changed her mind about California and is now apparently in film school in NYC.

Yeah, they had very brief little updates from the teens during the closing credits, and she said she was more of an east coast gal.

I was surprised that the two most emotional moments for me involved the mean/popular girl. She had a heartbreaking "twist" to her story.

Yeah, I was surprised by that, it was so sad.

Perhaps that's where the mean streak came from.

If you're talking about this:



You'd probably want to watch Blue first, as well as White.

Red is the third film in the trilogy. And as the poster says, a masterpiece.

It's really not that reliant on the other films and could be watched successfully on its own, but yeah it's still probably a good idea to check out the others first or a number of things might lose some of their relevance.

Well right, there's not necessarily a through-line in terms of the plot, but the ending definitely loses resonance, and there are other scenes where characters from the other films pop up (most notably the courtroom stuff).

There's also the bit where Valentine helps the old woman with the recycling, which doesn't really hold much meaning out of context of the other films.
