why does ed and lorraine's love hit so good every time 😭 the quality in terms of scares and story/writing fell off tremendously from the previous part so at this point I'm only here for the romance. fully just watching to restore my faith in true love
even though I know every beat of the oprichnik party sequence by heart from having obsessive sprees of watching it on youtube like once a month I still replay it several times whenever I watch this film.
the switch to colour, the music, the song, me singing along and chanting ЖГИ ЖГИ ЖГИ ЖГИ ЖГИ, fyodor basmanov in drag, his mask and his beautiful face, the glances between him and ivan, the drunk vladimir, did I mention the colours? reds and golds and greens... the most perfect insane jaw dropping scene in cinema history.
