Movie Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2011)

20140627:
While I would have done the very ending a bit differently, the resolution that happens near the end of the movie is well-done and I think it makes the movie as a whole into something simple and sweet.


In this simple and sweet sense, the movie reminds me a lot of Safety Not Guaranteed (2012).

With that being said, I definitely liked Safety Not Guaranteed better Jeff, Who Lives at Home, because Safety Not Guaranteed was consistently charming and good whereas Jeff, Who Lives at Home was a bit rough around the edges.


Ultimately, this movie is worth watching once, though one should be prepared for the occasional depressing or emotional moment.

Ha. "I watched Signs again last night."


Lol. He sounded like a kid when he was talking to his mom.
Wow, this gets quite strange by the 17 minute mark.
Damn, didn't see that coming.
Haha. He's thirty.


Oh my goodness. (Car)
Hehe. AIM.
That's one fucked up car.
Hahaha. "Well, having sex is one thing, but making love is another, right?" "What's that even mean?"


The camera movement in this movie is awesome.
That's so beautiful. (him running down the bridge)
