Task 30: Watch a film from my list of Most Beautiful Posters

I've started and fallen asleep this movie so many times, and once I felt my drowsiness getting ahead of me, I stopped this shit and told myself I'd finish in the morning. 

This was the movie that was I was supposed to lose my NC-17 virginity to like a year and a half ago, and I think I've see Michael Fassbender's dick sway like 10 times. After about a year I decided to watch Pink Flamingos and that was a little different from this movie. Then I saw Widows and decided I would finally watch this soon. 

I'm surprised I liked this as much as I did, mainly because of the cinematography. The movie seems so patient. McQueen can just set a camera in one spot and we just see these people either talking or yelling or fucking or whatever they're doing, and it feels even more real. 

The story and the characters felt real and didn't feel glamorized. These characters weren't the best of people, but you still felt for them. 

Anyways, I really liked this movie, and I don't really have very many problems with it.
