Reprise

Once upon a time
The knight faced his enemy:
"I'll solve you rubik!"


I just watched a screening of Joachim Trier's debut feature Reprise last night. Wow. Fuck yeah. Brilliant, easily best movie I've seen this year. Gorgeous cinematography, characters that seem overtly personal, more literate than any movie I've seen since... Truffaut?... excellent soundtrack, constant entreaties to be a "Zarathustra." Really fantastic. I won't go into a review, because who cares (except perhaps the college paper), but man. Oh man. One of those really inspiring movies, that demands I go out and shoot something. May 16 it opens in limited theaters (definitely both Grand Rapids and San Francisco), watch it.
