    Also the internet has Chris Hemsworth at 6’3” but I feel like he’s 6’4”

    pretty much any actor can look much taller/shorter respectively based on cinematography. im sure some of it might have to do with shoes too. also, when you're standing next to RDJ and ruffalo, you're gonna look massive haha

    I’m 6’4 and I’ve stood next to him a bunch and clocked him at or very close to my height. But maybe his beefcakery gives him an inch lol

    Ever since watching this I keep thinking about when she ties his shoe in the final scene and it makes me want to bawl. Even after getting a divorce and never wanting to be with someone again, sometimes you can still do a small gesture or say nice things like that that show there’s always going to be some sliver of love and friendship there. Absolutely heartbreaking.

    Perfect ending.

    As of the spring I’m solely an editor, but prior to that I was doing a lot of camera which was much cooler for sure lol

    Yup, this is absolutely phenomenal. It's like 2h15m and it felt like maybe 45 minutes had passed, I was glued to it the entire time. SO well-written and amazingly acted on all fronts. I really love how it really doesn't clearly present one side in the right (though for a while towards the middle it seemed really sympathetic to Charlie and kind of painted Nicole in the worse light but that definitely isn't the case by the end)

    I actually really want Phoenix to win the Oscar still just because I want him to have one lol but Driver was just incredible in this and deserves it just as much

    How the fuck did Phoenix not win for The Master? What won that year?

    DDL, and deservedly so. It’s more insane that Christoph Waltz beat PSH for supporting based on Django

    I've never seen Lincoln but I can imagine DDL did a great job. PSH was definitely better than Waltz though.

    The Master may be the best movie ever made. I'm still baffled that people were lukewarm on it at first. Idk how you could have anything but an intense, visceral reaction to it.

    it is easily one of the best of the decade. i still would take TWBB over it.

    I was kinda lukewarm on it back in 2013 or whenever I watched it, no idea why now. I rewatched it last week and it's an easy 10.

    I was also lukewarm on it when I saw it in theaters but because it was just so different than what I expected, or wanted, or I don’t really know. Then watched it again years later and realized it’s a masterpiece.

    Watched this today and I think it confirmed it for me. I don’t want to ever have kids.

    Finally watched this last night, really liked it a lot and loved the performances, but this is what I have thought about most since then

    Right? Like it feels weird to be so dismissed for this opinion. Being able to kind afford a NYC and LA apartment and a high class lawyer is nowhere near relatable to me, and that took me out of how naturalistic or “normal” these characters are supposed to be

    I relate far more to being a mob hitman than I do to having shortcomings in a relationship

    I get what @OhTheWater is saying but about how this is more naturalistic or meant to be relatable I guess, but that’s still manufacturing intent. Things can hold universal truths even if they are miles away from your personal experience, and I still saw every failing as if it could’ve been my own on a much smaller scale

    I absolutely connected to some of the characters in The Irishman far more than I connected to anyone in this, if you wanna make that weird comparison. Nothing in this was super truthful or meaningful to me. It happened, the acting was okay and I walked away. I mostly appreciated the introductory scene and then got less interested as it went along. Dern and Alda and Driver were all good, but I am not thinking about this anymore. It passed over me like The Holiday passed over me

    The apartment scene particularly when Adam Driver covers his face crying was extremely relatable to me.

    That definitely sounded snarkier than intended, I guess I just don’t see why this is taking a lot of flack due to the financial situation of the protags when so many other recent, highly lauded films are way more out of the realm of what I assume is the personal experience of most average folk

    It’s fine than this didn’t work for a lot of people, I’m an admittedly easy mark for Baumbach, I just don’t put much stock in that argument personally

    I maintain that this is a very humane film and I saw a lot of my best and absolute worst inclinations in both of these characters

    I’d consider anyone who can’t relate to this movie lucky.
