How to be a proud member of the society and dissolve as a contributor solute, in Never Rarely Sometimes Always.
A positive is always a positive. The film starts with one of the most basic scenarios and sticks to that same form of grammar throughout the journey. The premise, the conflict, the solution though may remain basic but it is the way we are forced to view these familiar scenes with a new angle. The writer and director Eliza Hittman’s Never Rarely Sometimes Always has an awe-inducing leap of faith spread across the film. It glorifies the usual non-cinematic aspect of the film and draws a wide range of emotions. And one of my favourites is friendship. Sailing across polished marble floors and rattling trains, what we get is few words and memories shared with innocence and a wee bit of cash in hand.
