It's very much a solemn meditation on grief,and I liked it.

That said with Casey Affleck's reputation I am unlikely to recommend it to people.

Agreed. I think about David Lowery, who among other things edited Upstream Color and is probably most responsible for it working as well as it does, and then I remember that Casey Affleck is kinda his muse, and I'm like "Ugh."

I feel the same way, and it's a god-damn shame because I really liked this movie. Meditation on grief, yes, and thus/but also being stuck in a place/in life/emotionally (not just ghost-Casey Affleck but living-Casey Affleck as well who does not want to move) and thus life just moving past one. It made me reflect my own life quite a while after finishing the movie.

I was vaguely looking forward to this until all the abovementioned came to fore, so, yeah, that's a shame.
