HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
Thought that it had been Wrangled but turns out I saw it here… (Same difference?)
Very heady, very well-informed flick philosophically, dramatically, and cinematically speaking. Oh and while the psychology leans in the pop-psych direction, it isn’t so caught up in that angle that it ruins it. (In fact, I’d say that card was played with tender care.)
Allusions that blew me away:
- Frank? Harvey. Harvey? Frank.
- The E.T. bike ride right down to the freakin’ grey hoodie. (The inclusion of Drew Barrymore w/in the flick as a nod just put it over the filmic top on that element)
- Plane disaster a la Fight Club
I’m sure there were others snuck in there but I was either (a) too knocked out to catch them on the first pass or else (b) haven’t got enough cinema under my belt.
