    I don’t care that the portrayal is accurate. It could be the most realistic or least realistic portrayal of addiction ever captured and I’d still think that this lacks artistic merit. It’s almost as bad as Candy’s art in the movie itself. Yeah, the movie is kinda raw, but it uses that shock value as a crutch to the point where it’s not even engaging to watch. Really disappointed, but maybe I’ll come back to it soon.


    Also, the score…

    This is one of the most rewarding cinematic experiences I've ever had. Hands down one of the most incredible and important works of film from this decade. I'm really looking forward to exploring more of Tarr's work.

    I graduated high school a few weeks ago. It hasn’t hit me yet, but it probably will soon. I’m heading to Philly in a few months for college and the change from living in a small town is gonna be big. I really think I hate it here in Central PA, but we’ll see how I feel about that when I get to college. Who knows if life in the city is gonna be all that I call it up…
