    most of my life i’ve lived in the suburbs, by a lake, full of peaceful mundanity that i was quietly okay with. the city, while not too far away, seemed like a distant dream to me for much of my youth, a weird haze of people with purpose and people without it. something about it was almost unattainable, as if to live there meant success... or something.Β 

    recently i’ve moved to the city, and i’m suddenly struck with how it…

    β€œdo all lovers feel they’re inventing something?”

    wow. i have no words for this film. nothing that can do it justice, at least. i’ve written many versions of a review that analyses the work of art that is portrait of a lady on fire, however nothing i wrote felt good enough. i remember reading somewhere that cΓ©line sciamma wrote portrait of a lady on fire as a tribute to the female artists of the past. whose work hangs unnamed and…

I did feel like I wanted a little more out of the ending, and…

    the ballet world is one of horror.

    as an ex-dancer myself, this was way too close to home. in the world of ballet, we are taught to always strive for perfection. so you do, however unattainable that perfection may be. you slowly kill yourself over it. you find yourself becoming the worst version you can be – because ballet teaches you that you have to be perfect or else you’re a failure. you become envious of other dancers. you turn…
