🔪kino lovin girl in a kino lovin world 🔪
too nerdy to be handling such masculine bravado. sometimes eggers' little homages to silent cinema, his use of close ups and lighting to be specific, helped generate interest during this dour experience. what started with knowing (??) camp turned to a bore quick. this timeless story is told in such a matter of fact, unemotional way that hinders the already questionable focus on a one note theme of vengeance. half the cast feels like they are in a different movie from one another ? way too try hard and dishonest in its want to artistically dazzle. hope eggers speaks from his heart next time
a cinema of heightened sense, sensation, and celebration, transing the conventions of heteronormative story telling and filmmaking. music blares, the camera glides around it's subjects, placing the body and form of the trans woman in clear view. a glimpse into the minds of the women are never given, nor does a glimpse need to exist. character motivations are potrayed through action, and action conveys emotion, adding to the dreamy state of euphoria alexandra and sin-dee. a vibrant burst of colours, humor, drama, and sheer expression. filmmaking at its finest.
