A Ghost Story: 10/10
To be honest, the Beethoven monologue is one of the worst scenes of the year.
Did you ever land on a score for this one? I remember you saying that you were conflicted about it.
I've more or less settled on a B- (if numerical then it's either a 6 or a 6.5). There was a lot I really liked about the film (primarily its aesthetic and the first half), but it started to lose me by the second half (where the scene I mentioned occurs).

It probably deserves another chance though. Not sure how much of my perception would change between a couple months though.
I just saw this and I agree about that monologue. Such pretentious stoner BS that the movie tries to pass off as deep. I'm going to disagree with the first half being better than the second one since I thought that the first half was absolutely terrible. The amount of padding in this was insulting. A solid 15% of this movie is dedicated to Affleck and Mara kissing and Mara eating a pie. Lazy lazy filmmaking. It got better in the last 20 minutes but not enough to redeem an overall really boring film.

Hit you with that disagree button.
Is this an endorsement of 7 minute long shots of pie eating?

You endorsed a 3 minute muffin chow.
Generation Um is 2/10

Just because I put that scene on YouTube, it doesn't mean I think it's good.

Yeah sure... Whatever.
