    the biden presidency

    adding to my white prestige movies list for the let’s get it on scene alone, which feels like a war crime

    edit: just before this won best picture (christ on a cross), i made a supercut of all of the horrendous moments in this movie. it’s pretty reprehensible when viewed side by side - a best screenplay winner had the line “you must du-et together” in it! never forget!

    “Pussy Galore’s Flying Circus” stop ittttt

    one of the most sexually depraved films ever

    personally believe this series was (is?) overall detrimental to the standards of a populist moviegoing public, but also to how masculinity was portrayed through the 60s and beyond, at least in pop culture. if “cool” is a tenable substitute for “ideal,” this really doesn’t posit it as successfully as people had thought, wrote, cast, etc. kiiiinda reads as blatant heteronormativity and dude wish-fulfillment, with its trademarked reliance…
