Sad that most people doesn't understand most of it...
I miss movies like these. strong and poetic writing with intense narration by Phoenix. the story is at the same time simple but influent and memorable to our common lives of all days.
the scene when Phoenix rides the car through the alleys and talking about cigars is hardly forgotten.
we all, not even for once, have lived like this, we all have been a teen like this, we all have had our small and big frustrations like these, and we all have had surprises... ...and there's always a new day to come.
