Director: Noah Baumbach
The first film I saw that changed my life was funnily enough E.T. Watching it as a very small child I learned to question the universe for the rest of my life. The second film I saw that changed my life was 2001 A space odyssey, (that one doesn’t need explaining), when I was 16,then there are of course all of Lynch’s films which expands one mind exponentially. The Third film I have seen that has changed the way I will view cinema forever and has re invigorated my love of all things film is Persona, then along comes a little independent film by none other than Noah Baumbach & Greta Gerwig.
I have of course seen many of Noah’s films to date and although I have enjoyed them nothing could of prepared me for the experience of Frances Ha.
I am pleased to say that as of 2 hours ago when i officially began watching this delightful carefully put together film project that was clearly made from love itself, I instantly fell face forward into frances world and never want to leave it.
Frances Ha will forever be a part of my life as much as air is to my lungs. As you can probably tell I am far too emotional to write a technical review at the moment but I will say that this film is perfect, (which will do for now).
It has everything you could want, and everything that any aspiring film maker would ever want to achieve.
Frances Ha is an instant classic and will forever be one of my all time favorite films ever made.
