I’m like Benjamin Braddock but a lesbian
20, they/she, the favs
Midnight Cowboy 1969
Impacted me so profoundly in a way I can’t really explain or wholly understand myself, which is always the best way to feel coming out of a film. Dustin Hoffmann’s performance is an immediate all-time favorite. You can’t search for the sunlight and coconut in your life without coming to terms with what’s in front of and inside you, or else it will eat you alive.
Fallen Angels 1995
All we can do in our short little lives is cross paths with other people, feel every emotion to its highest, and hope something sticks along the way.
(Seeing this on the big screen has me 🥲❤️)
The French Connection 1971
Kinda surprised I’ve never been forced to watch this in film school because this is, like, peak visual storytelling. Could not care less whenever the characters were speaking but every wordless chase or stalking sequence had me glued to the screen.
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore 1974
Ellen Burstyn mothering levels off the charts. Gave me PTSD to me restaurant work days.
