Mommy ★★★★½

i don’t understand how my heart is, all at once, so heavy and so light.

this film is absolutely gorgeous — shot after shot, Dolan nails it and broke my goddamn heart only to put it back together. Mommy is full of so much love and joy, but there’s also so much pain… it’s so honest? so special? so horrible? i’m not really sure. i don’t think i want to know.

i needed to go to bed like four hours ago but i know i’m just going to be lying awake thinking about that goddamn ending. also, everyone’s performances are on another level. is it acting if it looks so real? and one last question before i finally close my goddamn laptop: how the fuck is Dolan only 28 years old………….
