    It's been a long long while y'all. How's it going?

    Just popping into say I saw this earlier this month and adored it. A few of my friends have been joining letterboxd (hi friends!!!) so they might kick my ass into gear and use it again. I just haven't been watching new films lately. This one was my first one since the muppet movie in february. Like??? Baby's depressed. She doesn't watch new movies when she's depressed.

    Hopefully things will be looking up from here on out!!!

    Out of the five films I purchased for Sundance, this was the one I was most interested in. Though it didn't exactly disappoint, it didn't live up to all my expectations either. But I really liked it! I think Censor (which amazingly has the exact same backstory for its lead character) did the exploration of sisterly guilt better, this film has all the trappings that I've loved in the past. Starting with its score, with the inclusion of two Nutcracker…

    Honestly just dreadful. This is the first movie I've outright disliked in a long time. I was really looking forward to it as the plot and promotional image reminded me of a cross between Lynch and Almodovar, but it turned out to be some mumblecore nonsense. There were SO many things I wanted to reach through the screen and fix: from the lead actresses' wooden emotions to the bland soundtrack, the mind-numbingly slow screenplay, all the way down to the…

    My second Sundance film, I was not disappointed and found exactly what I was looking for when I read the synopsis of this film. It was very polished and choreographed for a first time director, anchored by a thrilling lead performance. I felt that some of the secondary characters and situations felt flat, but the strength of the core performance really carried me through to the end. And WHAT an end it was.

    Ironically enough, this would be the first…

    My very first Sundance film ever! And my first review in ages... I haven't been particularly interested in reviewing as I've had other aspects of my life take over (though I always have time to WATCH a film). When the Sundance tickets went on sale I agonized over what to pick, and out of the four I've seen so far (out of the five I bought), this is still my favorite.

    The film felt like a warm amber honey whiskey…

    It's been almost 24 hours and I still can't get that damn song out of my head. Its honestly the best thing about the movie.

    It could certainly be servicable to entertain and also teach young children about grief, but I guess I have higher standards even for media aimed at tots. There are a few good emotional moments that resonate, but they do not make up for the rest. Predictable in almost every way, and I'm not sure what…

    Despite Ryan Murphy's icky, icky hands being all over this adaptation, you really cannot deny these absolutely brilliant performances. From sensitive realism to outlandish avant garde, the gamut is wide and queer as hell as each cast member lives with the ghosts of our devastating pasts. It is hard to believe that in 50 years the two films have become bookends rather than a classic and its cash-in remake... The explosion that would happen in 1969, and the various crises that have happened since culminating in the most important election of our lives... breathtaking that we still haven't learned any lessons.

    Oh for Leslie Howard to die tragically in my arms after bequeathing me a hefty sum of life insurance so I can live my dreams as a bohemian French artist, forever chasing his perfect image in art only to be reunited in death.
