Like Crazy

So this is really my first film review. Weird, but oh well. I have watched different films but have lacked to write about them, so I’m forcing myself to do this one, as a start. I just finished watching Like Crazy directed by Drake Doremus. It starts out with Anna in front of her class making a speech. Jacob is in that class too, and there is an instant connection between them. Anna is from England, and she only has a limited amount of time in Los Angeles, and she has to make a critical decision, and that is to either go back to England when she is supposed to, or stay in America with an expired Visa. Well, her heart picks, but it is a decision that she may regret, as when she does go back to her home country, and tries to come back to America months later, she can’t, because of that expired Visa. The next few years are hard for Jacob and Anna. It was sometimes difficult to watch these two that clearly love each other, and seem to not be good at distant relationships, but Anna does eventually get her Visa/passport straightened out, but is the love from when they first fell in love with each other still there? You have to find out for yourself! 
This was definitely a roll a coaster of ups and downs. It was a good story though, and it had a sense of realism, which I at times like in films. I am a film student, and have to say that the editing was really good. There were numerous of fast shots, and the editing really worked well with the story itself. I really liked the shots where it turned to one character then cut to the other character, and they just stare at each other, and for some reason we can probably think what they are thinking, what they are feeling. The actors all did really well. There were raw moments and I think they were the best, as one can see an actor really get develop into character. It was really a good film, and I hope you comment and let me know what you thought of it. I have a link here if you are interested in purchasing the DVD. I hope to post some other film reviews soon! 

My Rating: 8.5/10
Audience Rating: PG-13 (For Sexual Content & Brief Strong Language)
