    All the Beauty and the Bloodshed

    ★★★★★

    My poor little tiny heart couldn’t take it and I started crying during the opioid crisis witness testimonies, and didn’t stop until the credits finished. So I guess that’s what it takes for me to sit through credits. 

    The only thing I have to say about this is how real it is and how so many people treat art as only this rarefied thing to be objectified, when it’s really also an expression of the everyday. I didn’t take art theory so I’ll stop now.

    This has so many of my favorite things: violence, go go boots, random making out, lunks, cleavage, fast cars, leather, powerful women, shimmying, tight clothing, queer subtext, destroying men. This is cinematic joy.

    The ending is always a disappointment. You'd think Russ Meyer of all people would let the hot ladies win instead of mousey brown hair and milquetoast man. But oh what a fine ride to get there.

I will forever be chasing that feeling (or trying to recreate a reasonable facsimile of that feeling for someone else but I…

    I really have to know what would possess someone to use the same narration track as a PSA from 12 years before. I’m guessing to save a quick buck, but it makes this already off its rocker film so much worse.

    This movie made me reach new levels of hating myself (for having decided to see it) and the world (for letting this film exist).

    First of all, I saw it in a normie cineplex and arrived two minutes late at the box office where I was reassured it hadn’t started yet. I guess the fuck not as I ended up sitting through 20 minutes of trailers, including the Army Reserves trying to snatch up young asses under the guise of…

    Euuuuuuuuh.
    I started thinking about how some people who were traumatized young end up stuck at that age, in terms of maturity, never able to progress. And then I realized everyone in this film was stuck and unable to progress no matter their relationship to the defining story. And then I had to go lay down.
