Movies are cool
Under the Silver Lake is confusion incarnate. Nothing makes total sense but there’s always enough there for the answer to be seemingly in grasp. As stated by Sam in the film, the bigger picture felt as though it was right there.
But what is a mystery with no answer? A mystery that only leads to more mystery? Simply put, it’s a question. How far are you willing to look into something just for the meaningless to seem meaningful?
Are you ok?
I am myself.
Are you alone?
I can connect with others. I can laugh. I can smile. I can have fun.
So why are you alone?

After having seen Titane last month and loving it, I finally decided that I wanted to check out Raw. I absolutely loved Titane. Everything about it was so original and full of so much substance that there was so much that I could take away from the film. It emotionally moved me in many many ways. Of course after seeing something that amazing, of course my expectations for the directors debut film Raw became very high. Sadly, I was disappointed.
