Drama • R • 1998 • 1 hr 50 min
Gorgeous aesthetic, soundtrack, and acting by all. A complicated pair of characters you never truly get to know, yet understand completely.
the most interesting and stylistic shots i’ve seen in a while. great chemistry and writing. the dad singing was the best shot.
the kind of movie where despite knowing you shouldn't, you can't help but root for them
I like how it emphasizes that even though u come from a dysfunctional family, a suitable partner can save your life.
Plays the troubled violent man trope a little too well. Decent drama.
One of the most interesting slowborn movies of all time. It's definitely rewatchable
This film is my absolute fav. It’s dark while also giving you hope. I feel like the plot is so unique and different and so interesting too!
Gallo is a POS and the ending sucks but this is rather charming and quite good
It’s weird and quirky and artsy and absolutely brilliant.
It’s amazing and beautifully shot. Fully of dark humor and malaise.
