this was corny, kinda sexist, deeply problematic with its whole commentary on loneliness............ but i'll be damned if i didn't enjoy every minute of it. i can see myself rewatching this repeatedly, and i screamed louder than al pacino during this fucking sex scene
•Charlize Theron and Sofia Boutella
•THE STAIRWAY SCENE + the action immediately afterward
•All those sexy symmetrical establishing shots
•The fact that it reminded me I should FINALLY watch Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker
•The last ten minutes should have been deleted
•A lot of it felt like I was watching one long tryhard-edgy music video.
•In the advanced screening I was at, a girl behind me randomly said right before the show, "Channing Tatum is the Gene Kelly of our time" and I ALMOST DIED. THE NERVE LAJFKLASJDFALSJFD
1) anyone wanna help me dropkick that little bitch mary through the nine circles of hell
2) I am absolutely amazed by the sheer explicitness of this film. I really thought it was gonna be all innuendo and that the story would just center around the theme of the "falsely accused". But no, to my surprise, the story goes much, much further and explores sexuality (as much as a film from 1961 can, I suppose). The final scenes are so impactful because of the magnitude of emotion exhibited by Shirley and Audrey, especially Shirley. I'm a mess.
