Everyone is sad, all the time, especially when they're happy. Haynes' replication of Sirk's style is on-point. It doesn't feel like it's trying to recreate the '50s, but that horrible/wonderful IDEAL '50s, like Pleasantville did. Does that make sense? Julianne Moore is a goddess. And is it possible that All That Heaven Allows, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, Far from Heaven is the best trilogy yet made?

Todd Haynes perfectly catches the high-concept style of filmmaking that made Douglas Sirk a master in every single technical aspect. The acting is stunningly solid from all the actors, especially Julianne Moore in what will probably is the best performance of her carreer.

While the presentation is attractive and subject matter thought provoking, I found it difficult to connect with the characters in the slightest. This disconnection kills any lasting emotional impact and renders the experience unsatisfying.

Now if they could just have shared Raymond, everything would've been fine.

(Rewatch) Obviously watching this after seeing All That Heaven Allows makes a huge difference, as it's not at all subtle about being an homage/'deconstruction' (and it does get the look right). If anything, it's biggest flaw is not being 'too Hollywood' or whatever i thought of it as a film-illiterate teenager, but that the intertextuality might be too on-the-nose and conceptually overwrought, and it might be more heavy-handed than the films it desperately wants you to know it's referencing.
