He’s always saying these amazing, profound things. Just recently he was talking about how “better is the enemy of the good,” and that was really sticking with me.

I saw Palo Alto last week and couldn’t recommend it more! I am already planning to see it again with two of my friends. It really is the most honest portrayal of american youth I have seen, and the cinematography is so dreamy and beautiful. I’m also really loving Gia’s photos of the cast over on Papermag.
