like everyone but not much of a story

Enoch Brae (Henry Hopper) has an imaginary friend in the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot. He likes to crash funerals. He meets Annie Cotton (Mia Wasikowska) at the funeral of a cancer kid. She lives with her mother Rachel and sister Elizabeth (Schuyler Fisk). Mabel Tell (Jane Adams) is Enoch's aunt and guardian. Annie and Enoch begin a relationship. She has cancer and only months to live. He has to process the losses that he has suffered.

This is a slow contemplative movie from Gus Van Sant. The imaginary pilot feels a bit gimmicky. Henry Hopper does an able job as an odd introvert. Fisk has some good scenes. Mia continues to shine. I like everybody but there is no tension. The movie mopes around in yet another sick person romance.

I would say, it was an alright good film..

I found this film alright like Im not gonna say its the best because it was weird and uncomfortable at the same time. Henry Hopper's character Enoch Brae likes to crash into peoples funerals who he rarely knows and it seems like he is an antisocial person. It was rude of him to back away from Mia Wasikowska's character Annabelle, she is just so like a friend that anyone could have! Then when the pair of them became a couple (finally!), they had arguments that I didn't understand the reasons why they happened to fall out but they did.

It was sad to find out that Annabelle had a few months to live because of cancer and Enoch will be soon losing her. Although, in the end, I felt they didn't make a big deal of Annabelles death. No one was even crying or wearing black clothes which was really odd and disappointing. It just doesn't make any sense! I would suggest anyone watching this movie to be prepared for disappointment and weirdness!

Every Day Is Like Sunday...

" I've read a ton of patronizing and harsh reviews of this film that nearly dissuaded me from seeing it. From the very beginning, it seems the viewer has a distinct choice to make: filter the entirety of the film though the lens of reality/cynicism, OR embark on a visceral journey back to a time and emotional space of innocence lost. From a purely pragmatic point of view, this movie amounts to little more than over-dramatized emotional drivel: the cinematic equivalent of the most-maudlin-ever Morrissey record being played on infinite loop. However, if you choose to return to the space of innocence lost, you will no doubt be invited to recall the many dark, magical, and brooding charms of adolescence. You'll remember falling in love for the first time; the ways in which you conceptualized and romanticized death; your growing estrangement from your family...and well, maybe even your first Smiths record. When experienced as a multi- faceted coming-of-age metaphor, this film resonates deeply without trying too hard to create a pseudo-sense of nostalgia. If you: 1) are a grumpy adult 2) never wrote a poem just for the hell of it and/or 3) have always secretly wanted to donkey-punch Morrissey, you may dislike...or even loathe...everything about this film.
