500 Days of Summer (2009)

Everything was so carefully executed it almost sounds unlikely to be a feature film and not a 7 minute video.

1. the title sequence with voice over, with images of the 2 main characters – the screen divided

2. great music, great cutting/editing

3. quotations from famous movies; Fellini’s La Strada, Bergman’s Seventh Seal, an extract from the Graduate

4. the sketches that so fantastically bind the whole film

5. achronological sequences

6. semi-documentaries

7. great dialogues

8. great interiors, costumes, music, lighting, sound

9. LA
