    “Quitting is not going to make you stronger, living will. So just hang on and hang in there.”

    School was hell for me, absolute hell. It was hard enough being an autistic kid in an almost entirely unsympathetic environment, but when you combine that with constant and severe bullying, very few friends and constant mental torment, well, it’s certainly not a fun time. Before I had even turned 14, I was “removed” from the school because I was “too difficult”…

    “I wanna meet your family.”

    I went into this film with the impression that it was a dark comedy horror flick, but I actually just went into the film expecting something that You’re Next isn’t. My god, this film is cold. Although there are certainly a very small handful of comedic, or at least lighter, moments to help loosen the grip on the audiences tension, for the most part, this film is just downright brutal. But this isn’t a criticism, not…

Give me a break. I’ve…

    “No one gets everything they want in life. No one does. But we all get enough to feel that our lives are important.”

    If I could sum up this documentary in a few words, I’d go with adorable and heartwarming. What a lovely film. I kind of wish this film was a tiny bit longer but at the same time, it’s pretty damn good already as it is.

    To put it simply, it is just a wonderful, short documentary about a…

    “When you come to the end of the line, with a buddy who is more than a brother and a little less than a wife, getting blind drunk together is really the only way to say farewell.”

    I haven’t seen this film in over a year, the last time I saw it was in February of 2020, before the world fell apart right before our very eyes. Let me tell you something, I loved this film then, I adored every…
