    new french extremity films about unstable women employing grotesque bodily violence and light cannibalism to unearth their most repressed, primal instincts ... yeah that’s the very specific shit i like!

    “lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off, but it’s better if you do.” 

    “you like him coming in your face?”
    “yes.”
    “how does it taste?”
    “it tastes like you but sweeter.”

    pretty wild how panic! at the disco and fall out boy lifted their lines directly from closer (2004). like, out of all the movies in the world why did this one resonate so deeply with pop punk bands? the entire plot is…

    not gonna lie, seeing all these white actors play korean people really rubbed me the wrong way. i have no idea as to why they didn’t just cut the neo seoul parts that feature several prominent white actors (jim sturgess, hugo weaving, and my husband hugh grant) in elaborate yellowface. the film is already 3 hours long; why not just scrap that section so as not to go to the trouble of unnecessarily putting white people in the make up…
