    Part of 100 Years, 100 Movies, Pt. 5

    “You look great as a girl.”

    I love swimming, but haven’t been in so long, even before the whole, y’know

    I get sirred/pass/whatever you’d like to call it all the time, although considerably less since the pandemic started (i assume a combination of “I don’t go anywhere,” “I like floral masks,” and “my hair’s been consistently dyed”)

    I don’t think I’ve ever once corrected anyone, both because i literally could not give…

    The Scent of Pheasant’s Eye: An Episode from the Tales of Flowers


    Part of 100 Years, 100 Movies, Pt. 5

    (Note: The version on Youtube has only Spanish translations for intertitles, interpretation thus suspect (I did notice, however, that the spanish was covering english translations…..but i am too impatient to find the english one)

    I….did not realize this was a silent film beforehand, I am A Moron

    Well that’s not really what I expected; certainly a lot more stylistically innovative than I thought (which here means utilized a lot of random noises and choppy editing) and also, although I was well aware this was a movie about skinheads, possessed of more swastikas and nazi punk songs than anticipated 

    Certainly not a bad movie but also not a comfortable one to watch

    Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes


    Cute fluffy twilight zone— my brain spit out “ramune twilight zone” and I can’t get rid of it 

    I can’t give it a higher rating because I really didn’t understand the mechanics at play here and have some questions about the supposed cute resolution but whatever it’s short and sweet!

    Gender Troubles: The Butches


    Part of 100 Years, 100 Movies, Pt. 4

    “There needs to be older butches in the world, helping younger butches out”

    I don’t have the words to say how much pain and angst and confusion having an older butch who was presented to me as someone to look up to would have saved me in my life. There were none growing up in my small Southern town, at least none who were presented to me as out, happy, successful lesbians—…

    “I just thought you meant you came from Texas.”

    I know we make fun of Clark Kent all the time for thinking glasses count as a disguise but honestly seeing Marilyn Monroe in glasses maybe we should give it a little more consideration

    It’s walking a tightrope between “stupid and annoying” and “stupid but charming” the entire time and honestly I think it sticks the landing in charming perfectly. Like, I could see how you could not like it or…
