Of all the non-competition films at Sundance ’09 (Premieres, Spectrum, Frontier, Park City at Midnight), the one I’m least interested in seeing, no offense, is Marc Webb‘s 500 Days of Summer, which is about Joseph Gordon-Levitt flashing back to his relationship with Zooey Deschanel and trying to figure out why she broke up with him. I’m already suffering just thinking about this film.
Any guy who doesn’t understand exactly what’s happening and not happening at any moment in a romantic relationship holds no interest for me. Only losers go “what went wrong?…waaahh” when things don’t work out. Winners know what’s going to happen before it happens, and they hold the door open for the woman as she leaves, and they give her cab fare.
