Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

Loving and being loved by an artist is immortality at its strongest.

I am once again longing, once again yearning, once again falling in love alongside two of my favorite cinematic French lesbians. 

Awestruck as ever by the visuals, the subtle yet firm way in which Sciamma conveys clear consent as desirable, the prominent depiction of the female gaze, and the absolute, heart-wrenching pain of that final shot.
