    Adorable little partly finished short. Pretty great 5 minutes.

    My least favorite of von Trotta's that I've watched so far but man, I still really love how much she focuses on female relationships. This one just didn't connect with me quite as much.

    While I do not necessarily love this movie in the same WAY I loved it at 20 (which is only for the best), I still think it holds up as a remarkably sharp and biting black high school comedy. Something that could never have been made even ten years down the line, it dares to satirize topics that are usually untouched, and does it in a way that is challenging and provocative. Still one of the best.

    This is... such a waste. I knew it got bad reviews and I was not expecting very much. But this is way less than I was expecting. And why? This should have been funny! Melissa McCarthy is funny! The weird Martha Stewart-type parody certainly seems like it should be funny! The actors in it are all funny. Girl Scouts fighting in the streets? Funny! And yet not a damn thing is funny. I think I smirked like once. Just a waste of things.
