The Death & Life of John F. Donovan ★★★★★

the art of memory. what a beautiful thing it is to be remembered. can’t even speak about this yet, overwhelmed by how much it made me feel. Dolan will forever speak to me, the young formerly closeted kid with issues with his mother and trauma that overwhelms him, his movies will always feel like they exist for my solace, my catharsis. to me, it is impossible to be anything approaching objective, as it always has been for me in my discussions on movies here. but right now, to me, this is one of the best films ever made. and I am so grateful that it is in my life. I hope I live long enough to be remembered, even if it’s not as I dreamed.
