    Fuck. Disgusting, snot-in-mask crying throughout. AND the drive home.

    Love everything, but especially the depiction of childhood. It's not nostalgic. It's terrifying, not being sure who you are or how to express yourself, and having to find those answers in a world you didn't create and have no control over. So honest and intimate. Can't help but fall in love. Little Woody Norman is so charming. I didn't want it to end, but I'll be back, with tissues.

    I am so confused as to why people are saying this movie is slow. It's almost nonstop sexual tension and/or emotional terror. If you can't see the eroticism in leather rope plaiting and fingering paper flowers that's entirely a you problem.

    Cumberbatch manages not to irritate the piss out of me. Breathes some new life into the repressed bully archetype that's otherwise gotten pretty tired. And that ending! This is the stuff. Finally an awards hopeful that's actually good, praise be to Campion.

    This is a movie about the ways that men treat women. The "Obvious Misogynist" considers women as a tool for him to control and fuck at his leisure. The "Nice Guy" wants to be a friend and liberator to women, but that interest comes and goes proportional to how much he wants to have sex with them. No matter how similar in intellect and skill we prove ourselves to be, they believe it is up to them to determine our worth, our freedom, even our personhood.

    Fuck them. Rock on, Ava.

    It's bad enough to be a messy jumble of blunt gross messaging and misogynist ideas, but it's even worse to present them with so much gorgeous cinematography and perfect acting that I keep looking for reasons to like it that never appear.

    I don't know much about Tom Ford outside of his fragrance line, and I didn't see his first movie, but he pretty clearly has some problems with women that he needs to get worked out. Nocturnal…
