An Unparalleled Personal Cinematic Experience
10 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Ever so rarely are we given the opportunity to experience with our own eyes something possessing true beauty and wonder. Scenes From the Suburbs is exactly that, but also so much more.

For a world craving sentimentalism as our own it's becoming increasingly complicated to experience events that touch us on the most personal level, mostly because films and other art forms are more and more built to be enjoyed by all, leaving behind those experiments that are minimalist in scale but truly grand in feeling. Spike Jonze sees this trend and seeks to provide us with something beautiful, something more than just a film or even an experience. He gives us, together with the ever so fantastic Arcade Fire, a short but powerful moment of indescribable emotions and nuanced conceptions of nostalgia, war, growth, friendship and the world.
