    Ghost World

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    films from the year I was born ๐Ÿค


    Pining for the dead.

    Both embodying the everlasting cynical teenage angst rooted in everyoneโ€™s spirit, uncultured misanthropist Enid (Thora Birch) and her disoriented yet socially appreciated best friend Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), undergo the early taste of adulthood and its conformist capitalist structure through what appears to be a boundless volume of independence and a backdrop of a grotesque neighborhood full of caricatures and simulacra of artifacts from a bygone era.

    10 Things I Hate About You

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    I hate the way this film romanticizes the hard to get girl trope, and the way women shown are supposed to be more irresistible for the eyes of men in this manner (especially when the director is a cis guy)

    I hate the way how the plotโ€™s foundation is based on the fact that a short white sad boi (gordon-levitt) creates an unnatural and immoral scheme on how to get a woman whom he fancies, treating her as an objectโ€ฆ

    Anna and the King

    Watched this for Asian Arts class and weโ€™re to write a reflection about this so i took a few notes along the way to write down my thoughts just like an intelligent student should:

    -The physical and symbolic division of the aristocrats and proletariats
    -Anti-colonialism
    -East and west culture influence
    -Wait, why is the king of Siam played by a Chinese actor???
    -Haha baby tom felton cute
    -Wait, there's still 2:20:00 left??
    -Ah yes letโ€™s talk about the monarchy
    -wowโ€ฆ

  • The Neon Demon

    The Neon Demon

    Films that are better off muted

    Dominating by an evocative palette of exceedingly high saturated red and blue colors, The Neon Demon tests Nicolas Winding Refnโ€™s aesthetic pursuit by revealing collected shots that go outside the limitations of haute couture glamour. It proudly features the superficial side of the world thatโ€™s filled with brutality and jealousy while simultaneously exposing the futility of the fashion industry in the emptiest and coldest way possible.

    Itโ€™s as self-indulgent and pretentious as it can be.
