Punch Drunk Love

“That is what ‘Punch-Drunk Love’ is about, a film that comes across as a tender, funny, harmless comedy, but has a dark, sad, enraged heart: he is from a country that forces its citizens to think and act uniformly, and in these ways, ties up their emotional and analytical connection to themselves; they are under such pressure, that they either break or give in.” Argues that the film is “a psychological study of the lonely ones, struggling like a fish caught in the net of the system, and finally able to break through the mesh. By falling in love and being loved.” (Tom Tykwer, “Nothing matters anymore, except love,” ptanderson.com/Spiegel, 3/12/2003)
