    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ½

    I'm thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of ending things! I am thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of ending things. I'm thinking of shoving an ice pick into my skull.

    Okay, let me take a step back. Charlie Kaufman is a director that I've never had a particularly strong connection to; I liked Synecdoche, New York in high school, but that was before I'd gotten laid. Is that unfair? Maybe. Cruel? I don't know, the more your work focuses…

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★★★

    It's no secret to anyone who knows me on or offline that I've become a bit of a David Lynch fanatic. I'm stuck inside sheltered from a chaotic world, and there's so much lore and interpretation that comes with his work that it's been irresistible to me.

    No matter how prepared for such a film one might be, it's another story "watching" it. It's not exactly something you watch so much as an intimate shared experience with Jarman.

    Allen v. Farrow

    (episodes 1 and 2)

    A vulgar testament to how deeply the #MeToo movement utterly fails survivors.

    I do believe Woody Allen "did it." I think he's a broken man who developed psychosexual fixations on two of his daughters, partially because of his admitted need to control the women in his life. I also believe that Mia Farrow is the prototypical Hollywood mother, adopting multiple non-white children that she was not culturally competent enough to care for and severely mistreating them.…
