I'm still here ... watching
29 June 2018 | by shamkhalovSee all my reviews

OK I have to say something straight away. Paused it an hour and a half in while writing this - the film is beautifully shot and superbly acted. If there was ever a way to explore the less comfortable side of healthy young adult desire -- to explore the world, to test boundaries, to take big risks, to live a little dangerously -- without the usual fear of worst-case scenarios or squeamishness, I'M STILL HERE is it, if only because the presence of terminal illness makes such risks seem like a quaint and necessary part of having lived. The movie shows a confrontational and sometimes dark but often humorous and wildly tender look at what it means to be alive, and, ultimately, what it means to die, all through the eyes of a young man and those closest to him.

Matt's quest to fulfil his bucket list -- at first filled with wild and predictable thrills, but eventually shifting to the sweeter, quiet moments only nature and family provide -- offers an excellent source of discussion with our generation about the things that matter most in life at a time when imagining past the next hour is often difficult. It's a brutally direct film that's hard to watch because it never pulls its punches about dying, but this makes it especially beautiful -- not to mention a near-constant tearjerker, even when it's upbeat. Full box of tissue required.
