Matt loves Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005)
"like taking a double barrel shotgun load of kookiness to the face, but in a good way..."
Me and You and Everyone We Know (15)
Dir. Miranda July
Reviewed by Matt Adcock
Great little film this, an unexpected joy, one of those that sucks you in and makes you care about the characters (an endearing bunch of average Joes, oddballs, losers and confused kids). You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel very uncomfortable when the middle age guy tells the two young teen girls outside his apartment:
"I would love to believe in a universe where you wake up and don't have to to go to work and you step outside and meet two beautiful 18-year-old sisters who are also girlfriends and are also very nice people..."
All human life is here and I recommend you join them for an alternative experience.
Don't watch if you're adverse to kookiness though!?
Darkmatters rating system (out of 5):
Action ööö – Slow but painfully tense in places
Laughs ööö – Weird and wonderful, probably have to be in the right mood
Horror öö – Self torching and some grim description of 'back and forth' fun!?
Babes ööö – Yes but their too young!!
Overall öööö (emotional)
Another cool review of the film here: Me and You and Everyone We Know
