Words cannot describe how amazing this movie is..
17 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not consider myself a writer, reviewer or general word smith by any means.. But this film has the potential to be one of the best movies I have ever seen. The dialogue is near perfect, almost wisps you along like the wind on a beach. The cinematography has a "requiem for a dream" like landscape but at the same time calm and opiate like. The score flows just like the cello playing actress who nails her role PERFECTLY. The only and I mean only thing I might say that is somewhat flawed is Shia's clichéd looks and glances, but other than that it is the best I have ever seen out of him as well. In fact, I won't tell you anything else other than to see this film NOW and know that I had to make this account and write this review halfway through the film just to give it justice!
