undateable

Oh my god, I super love Frances Ha. I’ve been taking my sweet time in seeing this one but damn it I’m glad I saw it tonight. I’ve been having a crappy night and I needed something to, um, cheer me up at least. It’s about this girl, a dancer, named Frances, who is 27 years old, who still doesn’t have her shit together. I can’t write lucidly about it now because I’m drunk but then it’s actually a simple movie. That’s it, Frances can’t get her shit together but by the end of the movie she sort of does. And I love the dialogues particularly this one:

“It's that thing when you're with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it... but it's a party... and you're both talking to other people, and you're laughing and shining... and you look across the room and catch each other's eyes... but - but not because you're possessive, or it's precisely sexual... but because... that is your person in this life. And it's funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it's this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It's sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don't have the ability to perceive them. That's - That's what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.

And by the end of the movie France’s wish actually happens but not in the way that I had presumed. But she does have this great sexual chemistry with this guy, a former housemate, Benji, who always tells her that she’s un-dateable. Watching the apartment scenes made me wish I was living on my own right now and not back at my mother’s house. God, I miss being on my own. The best dialogue for me though was this:

“I think it's a great day. I ate an egg bagel that Lev's slut made me. I internet-acquired three pairs of very rare Ray Bans. I'm doing awesome.” – Benji.

Uh, it doesn’t work pala without the actual scene because he was being sarcastic when he said this. I wish I had a Benji right now. Someone who would kid that I’m un-dateable but deep inside wants to date me constantly. Such is life.
