Quotes

David Foster Wallace: There's a thing in the book about how when somebody leaps from a burning skyscraper, it's not that they're not afraid of falling anymore, it's that the alternative is so awful. And so then you're invited to consider what could be so awful that leaping to your death would seem like an escape from it. I don't know if you have any experience with this kind of thing.

A near-perfect movie
27 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

To me, this was the best film at Sundance Film Festival with a perfect blend of comedy, drama, and life lessons. Both Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel had towering performances in this film. And James Ponsoldt (Director of Spectacular Now and Smashed) presented the two main characters' relationship perfectly. The cinematography was also simply amazing! You can tell that the cinematography for this film was done so passionately as well as the music in this film. Of course who could expect anything less from 4-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman for his amazing composing skills. To me this is a must see for audiences who are young adults (although it can be viewed by any age) mainly because of its view on how life should be lived. Right after the film was over there was a Q&A and one of the members of the audience stated, "Mr. Segel if you don't receive an academy award or nomination for your performance I would be very surprised." I just hope this film doesn't become another gem that goes unnoticed because of all the huge studio releases this year.
