    I legitimately have no idea how to unpack this, and that is the most thrilling thing ever.

    Fiercest piece of cinema I've ever seen (that exists?). I loved it, as much as I was horrified by it. Communed with it, on deep and damaged levels, while also finding that relatability uncomfortably bizarre. Yet, beautiful?

    We would like to believe it's just dramatized in film, but we know better. Even the procedure, Hysterectomy, obtained its name from man's early belief that by removing the womb, you removed a woman's madness, or hysteria.

    A substantial number of the men dedicated to these professions, at this time, were a bit odd themselves in choosing them; and some, with…
