I have tons of love for Beginners.
god I'm so ready for this
Where you thought Shane Black's The Nice Guys was a love letter to the 70s, 20thCenturyWomen is Mike Mills' visual encyclopedia guide to 1979. From the beginning, the life comes from the punk and soft rock music of the 70s. The film features a ton of psychedelic visuals that embraces the art in the 70s especially with fast edited movement and driving sequences with primary neon colors. There are so much photographic Polaroid shots that are also included in some narration of the film. The film is like a 70s culture exhibit in an art museum. It is played like an open storybook about these people in Jamie and his mother Dorothea's lives.
20th Century Women Review
I had no idea this was by the same filmmaker who wrote/directed Beginners until just now. Makes me want to see it even more, I really enjoyed that film.
Saw it last night and I absolutely loved it. The whole cast is great, but Annette Bening steals the show. The soundtrack is incredible too: Bowie, Suicide, Black Flag, Devo, and multiple Talking Heads songs and talk.
Going to hopefully see use my day off to see this on Monday.
Absolutely incredible. My favorite film of 2016.
I'm gonna have the soundtrack on repeat for weeks.
Now even more excited to see it this weekend
20th Century Women Ticket Sales Will Benefit Planned Parenthood This Weekend
thats so fucking cool
I hope a theater close to me gets this but I'm not holding my breath
Wonder if it includes Canadian ticket sales. I'd definitely go again.
this was amazing.
Annette. Bening. Was. Robbed.
Seeing this on Saturday. So excited!!
This is really good and felt really relevant
Doing a double feature of this and Lion on Tuesday.
Oh my god. The last 5 minutes broke me
Annette Benning and Greta Gerwig are so incredible.
What a great film. So much going on.
Does this movie have the best soundtrack ever? I believe so.
this and Everybody Wants Some were definitely the best from last year
This was so good. I can't believe no one is up for an acting nom, they were all brilliant (especially Greta Gerwig, imo, what a perfectly drawn character). Mills' style is great and I was happy to see a lot of carryover from Beginners. It's emotional without feeling exploitative. And I love the way he uses voiceover. It never feels like a crutch with the amount of character building that's already happening on screen.
If I had any criticisms, I thought it felt a little meandering toward the end.
The dinner table conversation about menstruation scene felt less real than the rest and more like an exercise in pushing the three main women to the limit of their personalities. It was hilarious, though, and at least said something important. I also was a little less in love with the resolution of Jamie's story and the trip up the coast; it pushed him into the narrative lead in a way the rest of the movie felt more careful not to. The way it all wraps up is beautiful, however. Probably my favorite of 2016.
Did not like this at all
I thought this was supposed to hit Amazon Prime on the 5th?
I should rewatch this. Haven’t seen it since theaters. I remember when the credits rolled my friends and I looked at each other and we were all crying lol
