    So, even though you have broken my heart yet again, I wanted to say… in another life I would have really liked just doing laundry and taxes with you.

    I was not prepared, not even remotely prepared, for what this movie would bring. Not for the dazzling cinematography, the emotional gut punches, the family drama, Michelle Yeoh being just all around fantastic, none of it. I'm so glad that she got this opportunity to play all the parts she never…

    "I don't think you have anything to worry about... You're not his type."

    "You know you can always come to us, right?"

    "I'm tough on you because I'm gonna make you great."

    In one day of Jane's life, this movie shows us enough to illustrate the environments of harassment and abuse that women in these companies deal with. Everyone knows what goes on, and no one ever says anything. Everyone waits to get higher, have more power in the company,…

    That was the most rhythmic, primal, and violent revenge movie I've ever seen. With a soundtrack that echoes deep into the mountainous settings, and cinematography that accentuates the beauty of the area, this movie is a work of art.
    Honestly, I have no good words for the blood-soaked, heart-racing, drum-pounding anger that underpins this whole story. It's just good cinema, and it's sad that movies like this don't get shown more widely.

    Had some good ideas, but never really paid off on them. I hesitate to call it a horror, simply because it never really went there. It did create one of the most accurate vibes of lonely teens and young adults perpetually on the internet, but that's all it really did. Looking forward to seeing more from Jane Schoenbrun, hopefully will go further next time.

    Me watching this movie: This seems pretty chill, I don't understand why... OH MY GOD, WHAT THE FUCK???

    In all seriousness, I spent most of this movie just enjoying the slow, but slightly disquieting, romance story that was building. Then all of a sudden, it ramped up out of nowhere, and the last half an hour had me gagging, and straight up talking to the screen.
    It crossed from dream to reality and back seamlessly, weaving a web of abuse,…

    Never waste your pain. - Maud, 2019.

    Religious horror can be a bit of a mixed bag. If you go too far, you end up with a preachy mess that lacks horror, and if you don't go far enough, you end up with a bland horror that lacks religion. It's a delicate balance that makes such amazing religious horror movies as Apostle, The VVitch and Wicker Man. But this movie... this movie pushed it further than I thought possible and…
