Like Crazy Reviews

    Non sono riuscito a trovare leggerezza in questa commedia, dove il tira e molla si ripete per diverse volte, seppur cambiando qualche fattore. Inoltre non ho trovato particolarmente a suo agio nelle scene romantiche, Anton Yelchin.

    Drake Doremus is 100% the best director of relationships. This story is so close to what the joy and "gory bits" of a relationship are actually like. Dustin O'Halloran's score is to love, as John Williams is to Jaws. This film makes you feel more connected to a humanizing love story than any movie before, but still shows you so much wonder as if you haven't experienced it before.

    "Like Crazy" shows us how choices influence the future and the characters are well built and the script is well put together. what leaves something to be desired is the editing of the film

    Great movie, well acted and Felicity Jones is a total charmer and is cute. I enjoyed the little moments of genuineness between Felicity and Anton that made their connection seem more real. The only complaint I have, which a lot of romance movies do, is the whole "hey, let's move the camera around to make it seem more real and intense. Let's not stabilize the camera at all." I hate it. It's a cliche at this point and they need to stop doing it because all it does is take away from the scene, it's distracting and fake. I got the sense that this movie was trying to be kind of "oh cry, cry for me cry for us" sort of thing. Almost like the direct was intentionally going for a sad, woe is me ending. There were a lot of things that happened, mainly with the whole visa thing, that in real life would have made things a bit more complicated. Kind of heartbreaking in the end, damn. This movie shows us one of the most grueling things about love and being apart from one another for extended periods of time: that love and feeling you had for one another in the beginning is hard to bring back once you've gone too far deep with other people. That magic and juice is gone. Kind of sad. This movie in a nutshell: the American government and their immigration visa bullshit ruined our deeply connected relationship

    They broke and got back together 4 times....exhausting.

    I prefer happier romance stories, but this works well because of its capable cast, even if some are underused.

    Not too sure about this film. Case of divorce before a case of marriage. And it looks like a case of boredom only partly resolved by a partner.

    Well, this film certainly raised a lot of questions for me, such as: so what? who cares? To be fair, it's well-acted, but a wafer thin plot that relies on people not understanding that America takes visa breach seriously is stretching things a little and it's hard to root for a couple who doggedly remain unfaithful to each other

    This movie was listed in a WatchMojo video, which should've been enough of an indication NOT to watch it, but I gave it a shot due to the premise. I have been in long distance relationships and I was curious to see the subject explored in a film. It starts off strong, there's a lot of chemistry, and a few relatable scenes. There's a scene where the characters are lying in bed together and talking about the future, their fears and concerns. It resonated so much with me that it brought tears to my eyes. When Anna called Jacob and asked him to visit, I was reminded of my own experiences. The shots of the suitcase in the foreground brought back memories of trips back and forth. The scene when they're on the train to the airport, smiling at one another with tear-filled eyes, only for the shot to change and for her to be alone was something anyone who's been in a long distance relationship feels. But that's where the positives end, the movie quickly derails once the characters are apart. Anna's visa expires and she's stuck home in the United Kingdom. They essentially make the choice to 'see other people' but the movie doesn't show us this, it just tells us later in the most cryptic and broken way possible. There are so many things that happen in this movie that are skipped, ignored, and glossed over for an 'artsy' kind of feel. It begs for the audience to piece together the mash, only for it to be a confusing narrative. It works for the beginning of the film, but it doesn't do anything for the middle and last half of it. [SPOILER ZONE] The first time they meet each other again, they ask one another if they've slept with anyone else. It is a very disorienting and shocking scene, they had only been apart for a short time at this point, and yet they slept with other people. It went against the character's personalities for the first thirty minutes of the film and it is also a big middle finger to anyone who's had to struggle with the pain of distance. The troubles really start when it's insinuated that Anna slept with another man. Even though Jacob's expression and the cinematography makes it seem true, it was difficult to believe she truly did it. Of course, as one would expect, the movie glosses over this scene entirely in favor of forcing more 'cute' into the audience's face, with no regard for their concern and confusion. The next time they're apart, Jacob starts dating another woman named Samantha. This woman is literally treated like garbage and her only purpose in the film is to be Jacob's assistance and partner he mistreats for...no reason. Jacob is still leading Anna on at this point, she has NO idea that he's with another woman and is under the assumption that he's still single. Samantha doesn't even find out about Anna until she overhears a phone call. Right after this scene, Jacob and Anna get married to get a marriage visa. It's very ingenious, I'm not sure if anyone could find the scene cute or moving in any way. Shortly after, Anna sees that Jacob is still texting Samantha, but here's the kicker. Anna says "there's still something between you two?" which means the movie skips the scene where Anna finds out about Samantha. THE MOVIE DOESN'T SHOW THIS INTERACTION. The audience is meant to guess and assume how the dialogue went and the effect it had on the characters. The writer and director of this film have never heard of "show don't tell", and they don't have much respect for women either. If anyone is confused by the ending, it's because they expected the cheesy ending. The kind where the two awful characters are happy together, but that is not the case here. The ending is the MOST understandable scene in this entire film. Anna and Jacob's relationship is ruined by their own disgusting and awful decisions, and now they're stuck together, aware of the bleak future. [SPOILER END] This movie is not recommended for those struggling in a long distance relationship, this movie will hurt you, then infuriate you in the worst ways possible. It is a waste of time. TLDR - Cheating plot - Normalizes drinking alcohol - The characters lied to each other...multiple times - Hypocritical behavior. Jacob says Anna is dishonest...he cheats. - Movie jumps around, expects audience to "guess" what's happened - They're stuck unhappy together at the end due to their own decisions. If this is realistic to you, seek help. Thanks.

    A great romantic drama about two lovers separated when the girl has to go back to England. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones are brilliant in this improvised film from director Drake Doremus.
