  • Jane Eyre

    Jane Eyre

    ★★★★½

    mia wasikowska is the spokesperson for all the weird girls of the world and i love her so much. everything about this is so perfect my chest hurt at every word that came out of mr rochester’s mouth… cary fukunaga is a genius

  • Mikey and Nicky

    Mikey and Nicky

    ★★★★½

    oooooh girl help. well this fits the criteria for movies i love (terrible men who do terrible things) so of course i very very very much liked this. shockingly vile at times but also achingly tender at others. i can’t get the “you could’ve been a pianist with those hands” conversation out of my head. my god

  • Pierrot le Fou

    Pierrot le Fou

    ★★★★½

    my first godard! i wasn’t expecting this to be so strange and chaotic and bright but i loved it so much. jean-paul belmondo hitting not one but two cars whilst trying to start his car is so iconic

  • Shame

    Shame

    ★★★★½

    i think at this point i need a t-shirt that says “i ❤️ stories about fucked up men in big cities” because it seems to be a reoccurring thing in my favourite movies. loved this one even though it gave a stomachache AND chest pains. what a movie

  • 10 Things I Hate About You

    10 Things I Hate About You

    ★★★★½

    this was the very first movie in my watchlist ❤️ can’t believe it took me this long to watch it, but i think waiting made it all even funnier because i literally was kat in high school (and i kind of still am. working on it) and being 20 now and seeing her made my heart grow three sizes because i have never related to a character more. also this is the most romantic movie ever, but that is probably…

  • Tokyo Godfathers

    Tokyo Godfathers

    ★★★★½

    new favourite christmas movie just dropped! cried like a baby the entire time, i love dysfunctional families <3

  • The Power of the Dog

    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★½

    loved this so much, it had a warm languid wistfulness to it that seems to be a leitmotif in jane campion’s movies (on that note, i am so sorry i badmouthed you when i watched bright star, miss campion. i was way too young and restless). it felt like a drowsy sticky summer afternoon and i didn’t want it to end. masterful

  • Spencer

    Spencer

    ★★★★½

    there are so many things i want to say but i think this is enough: “oh, i’m burning! i wish i were out of doors! i wish i were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free... and laughing at injuries, not maddening under them! why am i so changed? why does my blood rush into a hell of tumult at a few words? i’m sure i should be myself were i once among the heather on those hills. open the window again wide: fasten it open!”

  • Meshes of the Afternoon

    Meshes of the Afternoon

    ★★★★½

    absolutely speechless. blows my mind that this was made in the 40s❗️❗️❗️

  • Bound

    Bound

    ★★★★½

    i think a double feature of this and the living end (1992) dir. gregg araki would be perfect, but it also could kill you because of how sexy everything is

  • The Doom Generation

    The Doom Generation

    ★★★★½

    sometimes a relationship is made up of a perpetually stoned himbo, a hot girl who swears like a sailor, the ambiguously bisexual drifter they picked up and a lot of sexual tension. and that’s fine!

  • Zola

    Zola

    ★★★★½

    nicholas braun playing a poor little meow meow in everything he’s in is what makes me truly happy <3
