    some spoilery thoughts i would rather tweet but i don't wanna "ruin" it for anyone haha:

    i'm tired of men making films about misogyny that make the subject of the film, the object of the misogyny a blank slate. the woman has no origin, no interests, literally nothing outside the house. the film makes that the point, i suppose, but it's also its ultimate weakness. who cares about this woman?

    ed harris is wasted but actually great, michelle pfeiffer's characterโ€ฆ

  • Westworld



    the ecstasy of people getting away with murder, knowing bloodlust without consequence (until they do). yul brynner is truly terrifying!

    this is a terrible movie. it is deeply condescending and moralizing yet shallow and misogynistic, all at once. it glorifies stylized violence, and then refuses to own up to its own violence (seriously, you're gonna have a cannibal scene and not show any violence, but DO have a very long, male gaze shower scene with two models?). it screams about the exploitation of women, yet constantly mocks the character with plastic surgery and features the violent rape of 13-year-old runawayโ€ฆ

    one of my many gripes: why even have female characters in your movie if this is how you write them?
