    My grandmother doesn’t remember anything past ~1975. That includes her veteran second husband. But she does remember Judy Garland.

    There are so many lovely Chan films. I’m getting acquainted with a new one every month it seems.

    This one is oddly progressive, sex worker positive and empathetic for 1984. Charming.

    They’re discontinuing FilmStruck at the end of the month. I don’t know which movies to watch with my remaining time. My watchlist is too long. Maybe I’ll just watch old favorites. I don’t know. What a shame about FilmStruck.

    This has always been a movie that sits with me so well. Color, framing, dialog, color. Color. Color. Color.
    What a blessing.

    Ps. 7 lira then is equivalent to about 6usd in 2018, less than a Chipotle burrito.

    Self serious, in a not fun way. So much exposition.
