I have absolutely seen at least one movie, and I most certainly have not watched all of them

    Is That Black Enough for You?!?

    ★★★½

    A great document on the influence of black filmmakers on the history of cinema. The presentation is a little rote and dry, with a few interviews to break it up, but the film is primarily a monologue by the creator on these various films

    Finally, a Disney Princess I can relate to — namely, drawing things that make my parents upset and being traumatized into thinking I’m the one with issues

    What do you do when you just know someone is going to make your life suck but you don’t know how to give them up? When they’re on, they make life feel so much simpler. But in a single moment, they turn away and give you nothing, leaving you to wonder what you could have done wrong or how you could have prevented it: they remind you of how painfully complicated it all is, and how distant they actually are from you

    Ask for another I love you, and maybe they will give one back. Or maybe they’ve changed their mind

    I remember being in art school and finding obsessions. There’s always a fear of being perceived as naive or undereducated about a subject since “it’s all been done before” or whatever. But when you can just let yourself go and lose that fear a bit, it can feel vital and freeing, like I don’t have to think about what I’m going to make for a bit, it’s just going to focus on this

    Anyway, I feel like this short captured that feeling pretty perfectly
