Quickie: Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love (2002)

Explorations of introversion through Adam Sandler’s (I can’t believe I’m saying this) infectiously eccentric, outlandish performance, nail-bitingly PERFECT directing, celestially colorful visuals, a score that’s eminently reminiscent of both the taxing compositions of Requiem for a Dream and the callbacks of classical, lovey-dovey songs, makes Punch-Drunk Love a romantic story that pays its tender respects to the individuals who we never get to see portrayed sensibly on the big screen. Best hour and a half of my entire life. (Verdict: A+) 

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Adam Sandler viciously arguing and name-calling each other over the phone is something I never knew I needed in my life.
