All the Beauty and the Bloodshed

All the Beauty and the Bloodshed ★★★★★

Deeply saddening yet wholly necessary, a union of a woman’s communities and achievements, her private and public personas laid bare for us to witness. The world has been made even crueler than we could imagine and still we wish to capture the moments of triumph, of sorrow, even of normalcy, just to feel some sense of self-actualization. Stunning how this works as both political message film and full-on autobiography, seamlessly fusing Goldin’s artistic body of work with her ongoing activism. May just have to rewatch at the IFC Center if my body will let me handle a late night screening (been a rough few months for ya guy lmao).
