    The Souvenir: Part II


    **Warning: this commentary contains mild spoilers of The Souvenir (2019)

    "I felt through you."

    During & after my viewing of The Souvenir Part II, I was sure I'd be rating it 4.5/5. Even as I began compiling my notes this afternoon: 4.5. But as my thoughts unceasingly flow, I'm realizing...this film is really, really fkn special. It's divinely meta, incredibly smart, respectfully sensitive, & painfully real...but above all, it's important. & When I label a film "important", you best believe I'm rating it…

  • Belle



    "even at this age, I'm not sure what happiness is."

    Belle is undeniably the most cinematic anime experience I've ever had. Period. Full stop.

    As for the content? Ehhhhh...
    ....ehhh-mpty (?)
    Ehhhhhhh-xcept for the messages!

    Looking Glass

    "Stay the fk away from my motel!
    The Motorway Motel!
    You're...you're not welcome."

    After my Superbowl LVI dreams were trampled by some horned sheep on Sunday, I was left with nothing but a broken heart & a brazen effrontery that took the figurative form of an empty glass bottle just spinning aimlessly on the cement floor of a basement. Round & round & round it goes. Where it stops? .....Actually, no. Fk that. Fk you, bottle; bc you know what? I'm in charge…

    Summer of 84


    "It all might seem normal & routine, but the truth is, the suburbs are where the craziest sh!t happens."

    Idk about CRAZIEST, but suburbs are definitely brimming with the weirdest happenings πŸ‘€

    It's #SlasherSaturday y'all 🀩 & this week we're watching Summer of '84 (there's still time to participate!!). This slasher is about...the summer of '84 🧐 in the suburbs of bum-fk Oregon where - in the words of Buzz McCallister - nothing remotely interesting will ever happen. Period.

    "There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face."

    ☝🏻 that's where I'm at.

    Also, in the prequel to The Tragedy of Macbeth, the witches approach Joel Coen telling of the truest prophecy: Stageplay cinema shall be slain by thee.

    TMNT is prolly a 3.5 / 5, but how am I s'pose ta not give it 4 turtles?!?

    But also, that part where Donatello calls Casey Jones "a claustrophobic", & Casey Jones threatens Donatello with violence bc he thinks claustrophobic means homosexual. Oh, family-friendly humor of 1990...you so oppressive! πŸ“€
