I feel like any time two women swim together, it creates a liberating sapphic experience.

I am fully unable to regroup from this film. Jesus Christ, this is a gift. My gay ass already has her tickets for a second showing later today. I'm reborn.

I am pretty positive that Kirsten Johnson is the woman I am going to grow into. I can't fully explain it. I just adore her.

I know every one of my friends will roll their eyes at what I'm about to say but I really loved my experience watching this film, on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I was so struck by the mapping of the world -- how it's shaped linearly through mostly dialogue/some images and visually through wide, high shots that meander. The framing and use of shots create a map, a grid, of Hollywood at this exact moment without attracting too much attention to itself. Simultaneously, the characters are always connected to the media that has influenced/inspired them. They are either referencing older media (like Rick's old filmography) that impacts them, watching/listening to current media that is of the moment or speaking about wanting to be a part of the media that shapes the future. It's also interesting that Sharon is only seen listening to modern music - I felt that was Tarantino's way of reminding us that the real Sharon Tate's life only lasted until 1969 - she never had a future, so she's only seen embracing the moment.

Does the film have too many callbacks to Tarantino's prior work? Eh, not a bother for me. spoiler Overall, I felt the message of this film was "if you're in Hollywood, you're protected by Hollywood" which is total fairytale fodder outside of the 'normal' world.

I believe they should have made Kristen Stewart gayer in this motion picture.

this was such a forgettable movie experience, but I will say that they should have just gone all-in with the Gillian Anderson/Kate McKinnon queer awakening meta experience.

This film is an embarrassment to independent film. It's just an excuse to have three great actresses play super-horny versions of themselves for the lead actor/writer/director. I cannot believe the Sundance Institute helped this film...such a different time. If a Sundance sponsored film today had a character like the douchy Wall Street brother (who lives ON Wall Street, in an apartment with columns inside just like the ones ON Wall Street....it's too on the nose, people!!) with his cliched attitudes towards women and sex, it would be a disaster. I'm so glad times are changing!

I was fortunate to see a sneak peak of this film at a local movie theatre in Salt Lake City. I had no prior context - I hadn't read the book(s) or seen the prior film adaptations.

I just fully want to proclaim myself as an Amy March stan. Florence Pugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You immaculate woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been quite challenging for me to sit down and jot down some of my thoughts following watching this film. I've had this tab open for the past five days because I want to write my thoughts, but my thoughts are very painful.

Personally, I'm in the process of mourning. Like Lloyd Vogel, my parent is also terminally sick. I'm unable to communicate with them as well. Our trauma is different than the one Lloyd and Jerry share, but I can't help seeing me in their relationship. Also, my parent loves Mr. Rogers and showed me his show as a child - he, the show, what he was doing for children and education, even the city of Pittsburgh means a lot to my parent. I can't help but think about my own situation via this film.

The last film I watched that was produced by Big Beach was The Farewell. Both films share this theme of losing (grand)parents. I saw The Farewell on the day my terminally ill uncle died. Unbeknownst to me, I saw A Beautiful Day... on that same uncle's birthday. These little synchronicities spice up my life. They give me some sort of balance, some sort of hope.

This and The Farewell are my film companions as I prepare to lose my own parent. It's devasting and my heart is broken but I'm glad to have a film I wish I could share with them, that reminds me of a time when I felt safe, cared for, and loved unconditionally.

I saw this, for the first time, at the Sundance Resort. On 35mm. The film print was Robert Redford's personal one. It's also the 50th anniversary of both the film and the Sundance Resort - named for Redford's character - so a lot of good vibes were happening at this screening!!

Regarding the film, it's a freaking masterpiece of an epic. Holy shit. Paul Newman's face was sculpted from marble. Robert Redford plays complex well. I adore it. The landscapes, the camera choices, the color of it. I want to watch more of William Goldman's works.

I felt a rich wave of spirituality throughout the film that was a pleasant surprise against the backdrop of the story.

I've also realized that I, as a more-mature filmgoer, am at a point where I can't stomach slave-centric stories. It's so painful to see actors channel pure fear. It hurts my soul. I'm glad this film brought me to that conclusion.

This wasn't necessary. The first two hours of this film were not needed. The Joker doesn't need a backstory, he just kills without reason. But ya, let's blame his mother and his mental illness. Let's make him an incel folk-hero.

This is the only film I could see at the 57th NYFF this year. Not mad about it but it's made me think about how I watch films - narrative or documentary - about real-life people. The concept of "ontological violence" - telling the story of someone else without their consent - is a recent concept to me. For me, I'm now filtering all movies through this concept.

I enjoyed - really enjoyed - following the life of this man, the setting, the performances. However, was this film a great example of the craft of filmmaking? No. It's almost like a Wikipedia docunarrative. Considering ontological violence, this is obviously included.

The craft of narrative filmmaking here is stale. The acting and characters and theatrics of it all is very well done.

the full-body cringe I felt when the Judy was literally comforting her crying gay who was bawling over homophobia...the meta...it's too literal...his home was decorated with more photos of Judy than of his partner...gay rights.
