    I'm Thinking of Ending Things


    I'm thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of ending things! I am thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of shoving an ice pick into my skull.

    Okay, let me take a step back. Charlie Kaufman is a director that I've never had a particularly strong connection to; I liked Synecdoche, New York in high school, but that was before I'd gotten laid. Is that unfair? Maybe. Cruel? I don't know, the more your work focuses…

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me


    It's no secret to anyone who knows me on or offline that I've become a bit of a David Lynch fanatic. I'm stuck inside sheltered from a chaotic world, and there's so much lore and interpretation that comes with his work that it's been irresistible to me. It started with a couple of watches of the original Twin Peaks series, followed by this movie, followed by The Return, and now I'm just about done with his full filmography. It's been…

I've only just begun appreciating the art of…

    Carnival of Souls


    To me, this is about lesbian loneliness. Mary Henry is an irreligious, traumatized young woman living in rural America in the mid-20th century, an especially difficult time to feel such a disinterest in being involved with men. Everyone around Mary pathologizes this instead of taking her fears and obvious post-traumatic stress seriously: her coercive neighbor, her therapist, even the pastor of the church she works at to play the organ detects that there is something unnameably off about this woman…

    Allen v. Farrow

    (episodes 1 and 2)

    A vulgar testament to how deeply the #MeToo movement utterly fails survivors.

    I do believe Woody Allen "did it." I think he's a broken man who developed psychosexual fixations on two of his daughters, partially because of his admitted need to control the women in his life. I also believe that Mia Farrow is the prototypical Hollywood mother, adopting multiple non-white children that she was not culturally competent enough to care for and severely mistreating them.…
