"You will always be a part of me" - Mariah Carey,

- 2023:

I identified with Beau because I also have mommy issues and a dad who is a giant dick.

This is a special film that if I only watch once I will never forget for the rest of my life. I was hovering between 3.5 and a 4when Parker Posey said "hold my beer" and went apeshit in that sex scene and I thought to myself "is this going to happen" and then it did.... 4.5 stars. There wasn't a single moment in 3 hours where I was anything less that intent on paying attention to what was happening. Every moment feels important and unimportant at the same time and somehow it works. The fairly dark humor all hit for me and the weirder it got the more I liked it. In the end, I know that I will watch this dozens of times more in my life and have multiple parts that obsess over.

Not everyone is going to like this but what are you going to do... some people like to stay sad.
