Rachel Getting Married gets better the further you get away from it... Kinda like a wedding itself. You remember it with growing fondness later. Even if you already loved it.
<--- director and star
My friends Rob and Joe are also firmly stationed in the possibly Best of the Year camp. Joe even believes it's a Lost in Translation, a small beauty of a film that people respond to in real and personal ways -- i.e. he thinks it could have a similar Oscar run in it. We were both feeling "protective" of it against its naysayers which Joe believes is a good sign of people rallying around it in the upcoming awards season. He may have a point. I'm not as optimistic due to its idiosyncracies and modesty but I'm hoping he's right. I'll be so glad to be wrong!
