One of the most beautiful movies with the stupidest endings I have ever seen
14 May 2019 | by dzcfrenchSee all my reviews

I love the movie. Jonathan Gordon was beautiful and brilliant. I had to look him up immediately right after seeing the movie. I hope somewhere in real life he has a happy life. His eyes, his lips, his smile, his tears, his vulnerability, his desperation, they all spoke to me beautifully. I could feel his pain. When he cried, I cried, but god, the ending was awful, truly awful. It ended on a bad note on purpose, simply to be different, simply to NOT have a happy ending. Completely illogical to what happened a couple of minutes before.

Between minute 21 and 1:22, it was a masterpiece. If they cut the rest out, I would give it a 9 star or even a 10. It was so perfect. So either be patient and watch at least 25 minutes before deciding whether to quit watching or just skip to minute 21 when Charlie recognized someone he met before. You will still understand the story perfectly.

This will be one of those movies that I will watch again and again (between minute 21 and 1:22). It's so beautiful, so poetic. If I have the power to give someone an Oscar, I would give it to Jonathan Gordon. I have never seen someone so beautiful when he cried. The bed scene at the end broke my heart. It was so simple but his voice and his hand quivered and that was all he needed to tell us his emotions, his desire, and his desperation.

Someone needs to film an alternate ending and maybe add another 30 minutes to the film to give it a proper ending. Frankly I only need another minute where Charlie gets into a cab heading to the airport and on the phone telling someone he will arrive in SF in 3-5 hours. That's all I need to make the movie perfect.
