This movie is magnificent!
As Good As It Gets
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
Queen of Lesbania
Don't waste your time. Just another one of those really disappointing ones we all hate so much.
Duck Butter tells a story of two struggling artists (sigh, I know) that flee from their troubles into an intense relationship. The good part is that both Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa deliver amazing performances as reserved Naima and dramatic Sergio, respectively. The bad part is that the story elements are rather trite and the plot doesn't lead anywhere. Overall, it seems like a waste of talent. At best, Duck Butter is a movie to be enjoyed for the ride rather than the destination.
Absolutely loved this. So incredibly realistic and beautifully shot and told. At first I wasn't sure about the ending, but after some thinking I've come to the conclusion that it was a good choice of the writers to make.
In order to not get too freaked out about the characters here, especially the one played by Laia Costa, you'll have to know exactly how crazy they are beforehand. One could argue whether or not Laia's character suffer from a personality disorder, and I definitely think so, but that's what makes this stand out so much from other movies in general. It reminds me a little about "Silver Linings Playbook" I suppose, and if you liked that movie you'll probably like this one as well.10/10!
Hollywood really lacks good lesbian scripts that doesnt end with heartache. But what makes this worth your time is the plot and acting. Laia Costa is AHHHMAZING. Seriously her smile, the tears, the rants and farts. She is a joy to watch. The plot is simple enough. Two women drudge thru (almost) 24 hours together. They learn more about each other than they'd probably like. Mostly I think, they learn they have to learn to love themself before they can truly love someone else. Also the scene where Laia holds her hostage in the bathroom is a huge metaphor I think. You can hold someone else emotionally hostage to make them stay around, to make them love you back.So despite another a heart breaking movie, it does make you look into your own bad habits in relationships. Its like watching a cringy trainwreck because you kinda see yourself in each of these women.
