hiimstaceyWow. This felt less like a film and more like a journey. Terrific script, wonderful acting. Both funny and touching. I'm extremely mad at myself for not seeing this before. An instant favourite.
catherinefrancesWhat a beautiful, beautiful film.
NourNasreldin"Sean: You're just a kid, you don't have the faintest idea what you're talkin' about.
Will: Why thank you.
Sean: It's all right. You've never been out of Boston.
Sean: So if I asked you about art, you'd probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life's work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientations, the whole works, right? But I'll bet you can't tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You've never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you'd probably give me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can't tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. You're a tough kid. And I'd ask you about war, you'd probably throw Shakespeare at me, right, "once more unto the breach dear friends." But you've never been near one. You've never held your best friend's head in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I'd ask you about love, you'd probably quote me a sonnet. But you've never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn't know what it's like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn't know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms "visiting hours" don't apply to you. You don't know about real loss, 'cause it only occurs when you've loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you've ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you... I don't see an intelligent, confident man... I see a cocky, scared shitless kid."
Sorry, I just had to.
SeriouslyRidiculousRIP Robin Williams 08/11/14
thekure23I just rewatched this piece of movie history for the fourth time. God, what a masterpiece. It is everything a great film should be. There is nothing I don't like, save Skarsgårds character, and that's one I'm supposed to dislike. The big love, the father figure, the best friend, the gang and at the center of it all, a brilliant and tormented kid, scared shitless.
This, is what movies are all about.
Scratch47Powerful and therapeutic for anyone, but particularly for any smart person who has found themselves in isolation. Deeply human. Great script, and great acting by all parties.
halcainI love this movie! Very captivating.
stexdoThe performances are great but there's a certain movie-for-tv feeling regarding the plot and some of the monologues, as they were supposed to be very emotional but ended up being a bit forced and jerked out of the plot.
IreneAdlerGood movie. There were many great scenes: Funny ones, intense ones, sad ones... I really enjoyed watching it.
Great acting by Matt Damon, Minnie Driver, Robin Williams and Stellan Skarsgard. Really amazing.
Rdgz_Dust_SpeckAs said, it's healing and therapeutic. Matt Damon gives a great performance, as a sign of the years to come, and Robin Williams is awesome, as always.
kayjay027it's not your fault.
DieguitoVery good one..
thetallguyinthecornerThough the plot is predictable, it is very rare to find a movie with such an aptitude for brilliant dialogue and very humanistic characters. Robin Williams delivers one of his best performances as the psychologist. 9/10
nick-samuelGreat easy watch.
DeusesqueIt is great indeed
