    The Adjuster

    ★★★★

    here's a stream of consciousness from my notes app lol:

    desire
    transgressive desire
    real estate - property - home
    family
    family as background - fake - home is decoration
    home destroyed
    bureaucratic commoditization of the home and its possessions
    replacement of things with capital
    direction of desire ie (self)censorship
    the destruction that occurs when repression is breeched
    conversely, the consistent need to construct (american, nuclear) domestic conventions even when you are “allowed” to transgress (maybe by virtue of excess capital)…

  • Mamma Roma

    Mamma Roma

    ★★★★★

    moving, exquisitely composed; exists at the exact junction of architecture, modernity, tightly controlled realism, and incredible actress with hypnotic faces that just checks all my boxes
    giuliana bruno on the film: "a place where archaeological ruins coexist uncannily with the architecture of urban decay"

    i wish i could attach images to reviews so bad rn- i took so many screenshots
