Just saw The Station Agent for the first time, and I can’t remember a better movie that does a better job of exploring how personalities—belonging to people loud, quiet, in pain, ecstatic—fill space in a small town. Just a really sweet movie. Was on the elevator next to Peter Dinklage once at the Union Square theater. Wish I had seen it then.
Other ones I’ve seen recently are both The Prestige and The Illunsionist and Synecdoche, New York. Any thoughts or recs, leave’em in the comments.
