The Woman (only)
i had thought this was actually a documentary going into this. everyone plays themselves except for the writer/ director. it's not. i came to this realization about 3/4 of the way through this movie, when everything became very rehearsed. i felt duped. and i immediately became bitter. i'm telling you this, so if you decide to watch this, you won't feel duped. putting that aside, i liked it. it brought out all of my girlyness. watching a socially awkward couple in the very, very beginning stages of a relationship was hard to watch, and yet my brain was at a constant "awwwwwwwww" i wanted to pinch some cheeks. the interviews became sort of uninteresting and background to charlyne's relationship, but that's ok. and michael cera's face when she said she hadn't found love yet....oh man, it hurt me. in my living room. i know, big girl, right? anyway, all in all, i liked it. and she wrote a pretty boss song in it. it reminded me of daniel johnston. the song, not the movie. i had forgotten that whole stage of my life, and i am so glad it's over.
