    "let yourself fall into the mist.
    let all your passion out
    in this neverending spring rain"

    a magical journey of spellbinding and sprawling colour; an enchanting atmosphere created by stunning set design with an ethereal score; displays of transfixing kineticism seamlessly floating in appearance and deeply impactful in feeling; powers and transformation through incredibly expressive special effects.

    a quest for a place in the world, acceptance in assimilation and struggle for liberation; existence & identity misunderstood and vilified; the novelty of…

    Idealizing the past, yearning for what could've been if things went how we wish they did, will keep us stuck in a vicious cycle. One clouding us from how bright the future can be, preventing us from truly embracing and opening our hearts to the present. As long as we're still treading the alluring waters of fairytales in the back of our mind, it's impossible to enjoy the waves of genuine care and love awaiting to wash over us in the here now.

    as electrifying as it is ravishing; a score perfectly in tune with the cascades of tension and eroticism coursing through the celluloid; sharon stone is one of the greatest to ever do it.

    "How come we never talk about women's pleasure or problems? If men had periods we'd hear about them all the time"

    This sentence uttered early into its runtime followed up with a conversation about "mansplaining and womensplaining" should've alarmed me to the liberal feminist bent of this film's politics. And of course, they don't remain the only instances as the film is ripe with shoe-horned references to the #MeToo movement to convey its faux-progressive, hollow 'girlbossiness'. Additionally, there's an attempt…

    No worries, this isn't another review talking about how visually engaging and spectacular RRR is, because 1) there are countless reviews praising this film that way and 2) I'm more interested in what the film does as a whole. What do its visuals emphasize? What does it want to tell the viewer? After all, the film's title is RRR (Rise Roar Revolt) - so what's up with its politics? How are its characters written? How does it treat characters? What…
