Watch This But Be Prepared To Weep
I just watched this film yesterday and I can say it is one of the most beautifully depressing films I have ever seen. The story revolves around a man, Wilson (played by the pitch-perfect Philip Seymour Hoffman) grieving the loss of his wife to suicide. I was skeptical of such a premise, as I detest films that portray grief as something highly artistic, but this was not that kind of story. This shows grief as something terrifying, something terrible and not pretty at all. This is absolute mania over loss, the pretentions removed so that all that is left is a gargantuan void to fill. I cannot say that this film made me feel happy, but it was fulfilling in a way few films are. It shows what a person does with their desperation, and how they live through it.Was this review helpful?
