Melancholia

Melancholia

“The earth is evil. We don’t need to grieve for it.”

this film pretty masterfully captures a feeling of despair that i have felt at too many points in my life. i knew this was an allegory for depression and anxiety going into it, so i expected to at least relate to the material. what i didn’t expect is connecting deeply with Justine’s struggles and seeing some of my own experiences onscreen. there are some days where i feel like i am her and i want nothing more than for this planet to just be wiped out. i dunno. this one was really #HashtagRelatable for me.
