    With it being pride month, I figured that now would be a good time to officially announce myself as a member of the LGBT+ community. I have told a few people about this relatively recently, but I’ve never actually announced it publicly, so I figured there’s no better time than right now. I fall somewhere between bisexual and pansexual. I’m still unsure of the specific label I identify with, but it’s important to just get it out there about this…

    Hey everyone, this is likely the most personal review I’ll ever write, and one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written and shared with people. I’m going to share something that I’ve never shared with anyone, how I am inextricably linked to this film.

    When I was a child, I was sexually abused. I don’t have a lot of recollection of the event since I was only 5 or 6, but it very much so happened and this film has…

    So far this is probably my favorite Jarmusch film (of 3), and it is the most spiritual of the 3 I’ve seen, and the cinematography is undeniably gorgeous. There is something about black and white films that makes them so much more beautiful to me, and in this case I think it pairs well with this film’s themes. I can’t really say that I understand exactly what this film was going for, but the meditative journey it takes you on is really special, and I can see Jarmusch becoming one of my favorite directors.

    This film wasn’t like how I expected it to be. It’s a lot less narratively driven than I thought. There is an overall story going on but it is pretty loose, and there are often unrelated vignettes relating to food that are scattered about, which worked really well to show the cultural impacts of food, which helped to further immerse myself in the film. It was a great time to watch, and it made me think about the ways I interact with food, and the rituals that I have revolving around food, intentional or not. A nice lighthearted watch!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Yes, you saw that right. I absolutely could not stand this film. I have never in my entire life had such a visceral hatred for a film. I genuinely think this might be the worst film I have EVER seen. I am just racking my brain trying to think of one, just ONE, redeemable quality of Gran Torino, but I seriously cannot find a single thing that I liked about this, and I am just seething after watching this.


  • Lolita



    Lolita is so frustrating because it has a lot of potential to be a really good film as it's an adaptation of an important work. There can be interesting ideas about Oedipal(ish) desire, pedophilia, and even toxic parents controlling your life. I'm so frustrated because there were many opportunities for this to be good, but it just wasn't. It lacks nuance, it lacks well developed characters and motivations, and it lacks a thread of anything that could keep my interest.…
