[watched the cannes cut]
"there's a delay in my reflection"
encapsulates and undermines what was Cool in the mid-2000s better than maybe anything i've seen.
the satire is like someone hitting you on the chest with closed fists over and over but the universe it creates is hard to look away from. yeah, the republican politician with the last name frost should definitely use "miles to go before i sleep" as emphasis for "we do not negotiate with terrorists", sure.
if southland tales does anything (it probably does too many things, but that's its charm) it does it in brushstrokes the size of the canvas its painting on.
this should be paired with "new rose hotel" probably. or maybe "cosmopolis".
