    To talk about The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is to talk about the seventies, and to talk about the seventies is to talk about the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal. One would not generally look to this film with the hopes of indulging into the disco side of things, even if one of the main characters rocks an Afro in the film. The fact of the matter is that America in 1974 was not a pleasant place to…

    “You are what you love, not what loves you. I decided that a long time ago.”

    As a general rule, I don’t throw the word “genius” around too often. For one, I believe that using that important a word too often has the possibility to make it lose its power. And for another, it’s rarely true. Filmmakers are sometimes great at their jobs, but a certified genius? By my count there are very few people that actually fit that…

    This is going to be really painful to say. I know he’s a terrible person. There’s no doubt in my mind he’s an awful person for all the allegations and just...everything he’s done publicly for the last three years. But there’s no other way to say this—Kevin Spacey as Verbal Kint in this film is one of the greatest performances in the history of cinema. I tried with everything in me to deny it, but every second that he’s…

    It feels mean. It’s a heartfelt and emotional story, one of the first to really hone in on the idea of your significant other dying tragically young, which would then be replicated in numerous Nicholas Sparks books. I joke, but the fact of the matter is a great deal of the final act really affected me. I can make fun of them, but I’m not immune to sappy romance movies. But the majority of the character and world building…

    I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this on Letterboxd because I try to keep my reviews about the movie rather than myself, but...last November I was diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety. I call them my four friends so I don’t feel like a freak. I’ve learned a lot about these four things over the last several months, up to and including checking myself…
