Quotes

Sophie: As Paw Paw: Have you ever been outside? I mean not temporarily. I mean born outside, never been inside, never been petted, not even once. Yes? Then you know about the darkness that is not appropriate to talk about. I had a bloody paw when they found me and carried me in a towel to the cageatorium. It was not cool there, but they said, "We'll come back for you, Paw Paw." "Paw Paw"... that's what they called me.

Artsy Fartsy But Good
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this film. Miranda July made a unique beautiful film. It has a lot of inexplainable situations which seem to ring home with many viewers. Her quirky style reminds me of "Lost In Translation". I loved the fact that there was never a dull moment in this. Paw Paw was the weirdest part to me. Still I felt as if he made the movie even more attractive in the synchronism of the characters. The dead pan style of the writer, actor and director (July)appealed to me in several ways. The pace slowed me as if I was also being controlled by the wave of a hand. Movies like this takes a special kind of viewer like someone who can tell the difference between Columbian and Jamaican coffee. Writing is almost poetic and ludicrous at the same time. I felt as if Woody Allen was reborn through her. If you like stuff like "Being John Malckovich" you will love this film. I must admit though that sometimes it seemed as if the writer just merged many concepts into a movie and left it up to us the audience to interpret it. Then again, the Beatles did the same thing with music. Hope you like it too.
