    "It was easier when I just imagined you"

    After watching this in the perfect headspace, there was no way this would get less than 4.5. I mean FUCK. I'm mostly at a loss for words and probably should wait to write anything about this, but who cares. I felt every emotion during this movie and loved every fucking second of it. Might be a perfect movie.

    Reconciling with the person you once were is an impossible, mostly fruitless task. The…

    "When a caterpillar sees the end, the world sees a butterfly."

    (Yes, I watched this twice in a four hour span)

    One of the core parts of this movie is the idea that all you need to be human is the ability to love.

    Really have no clue how to tackle a review of this thing, but I figured it's probably time since it's nearly been two weeks since I saw it. A total triumph in the way Marty adapts a rather challenging book both eloquently and violently. The atrocities committed against the Osage should never be forgotten, and to me, a lot of the film reads like Marty grappling with the white man's role in the history of violence, especially given the ending.…

    This movie makes me deeply unwell. Paul Mescal portrays shame on screen better than any actor I have ever seen. The way he is able to capture the intense feeling of letting some down, before he even lets them down, is some great shit. Everything makes so much more sense when you know the ending, the minute details building to something we don't even see.
