  • Fight Club

    Fight Club

    ★★★★

    in the supreme words of ms aoife cronin: fight club shouldnt make men misogynistic it should make them gay


    when i was 14 i had a fight club quote in my insta bio and i kept it there for two full years (it was the "you are not a beautiful or unique snowflake you are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else") its pretty embarassing that i lacked so much media analysis skills at the time but now this movie hits even harder now that i have a brain to critically engage with it

  • Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults

    Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults

    ★★★★

    truly appreciate how this wasnt made with the intention of stirring up fear or turning a complex story about mental illness and brainwashing into a freakshow. that said im never sleeping again. completely harrowing to see what we're capable of doing to each other and ourselves. i genuinely found it so hard to look at any of their eyes and look directly at the screen. no one blinks at all they were definitely using hypnosis on each other and im terrified

  • Framing Britney Spears

    Framing Britney Spears

    ★★★★

    this is such a difficult unflinching exploration of just how vicious misogyny is. i cannot imagine the pain she's gone through and is going through because if this was hard to watch it is definitely harder to be on the inside. 


    its a testament to her artistry though that this scandal could not ever fully overshadow her public image. she is a once in a lifetime entertainer, not an industry plant but a true artist. misogyny has denied her work…
