holy fuck where has this been my whole life
Pain and Gain roofied Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Southland Tales is the failed abortion pooped out during the heated court trials.
it's cerebral yet schizophrenic, poignant/prescient yet vulgar/juvenile. you feel like you're gaining brain cells while losing them at the same time.
it paints an America of a decade past, but also a perfect representation of the America that's the reality now in 2020 via cyberspace. people may say the world and our Western civilization may be ending with a whimper, but man, all this online ruckus sure makes it feel like things are going out with a bang.
what can i say other than it's a fucking masterpiece
