• The House on Sorority Row

    The House on Sorority Row

    ★★★★½

    I love it way more than expected, it was going like a "typical slasher" that I would think of as just "ok" but it kept getting better and better.

    Also very glad that altho it's about a "sorority party" and college girls and stuff, it didn't have any male gazey scenes or sexualisation of any of the characters, that also played a role in it being a pleasant watch.

    Oh my god this film is *EVERYTHING* that I absolutely love, that animation, the stop motion, the incredibly creepy story and dark atmosphere, the painting of the the entire sets over and over, the "dolls" and puppets.

    Literally everything.

    This is one of the worst films I've EVER fucking seen, it made me so angry I literally can't even begin to describe every single shitty thing about it.

    Cis directors can literally go jump in a volcano.

    Thinking "I'm already feeling like shit so might as well finally watch this one and be done with it" was such a horrible idea

    The shift in the middle, with the major change in shots and camera work, the extreme sexualisation and male gaze-ness of it, even thought I *understand* it, and it is *made* well, but still irked me quite a bit.

    But the "first" and "third" acts, if they could be called that, are amazing, fantastic, was left literally speechless by the end of each.

    The shots are so tight, so close and focused on the eyes, quite claustrophobic even, especially in the first act, very brilliant use of colours.
    So well made film.

    Kinda disappointed by how much of it wasn't about the girl walking home alone at night

    That was a very unexpected watch, my mom was going through the channels far back in the list that we never really watch, and came across an Arabic-lang Iranian channel, which had dubbed this film in Syrian.

    I would have preferred if it was the original Iranian, but Syrian dub isn't that bad.

    The film is kinda a typical love story with a "get close to god to fix your life" direction, but the places where filming took place are gorgeous, the village, the forest, etc.

  • Friendship's Death

    Friendship's Death

    ★★★★

    I deeply dislike that westerners, especially Brits, used Black September and the Palestinian struggle as the vehicle to deliver their "humans bad and destructive" plot on.
    Despite that, I actually like the film, and they actually discuss the conflict in a very nuanced way, the film is *very* political, very clearly on one side politically, which I wasn't expecting.

    Also really appreciate that they didn't go the "clueless female alien has sex with human" shitty trope that I absolute hate and despise.

    ★★★

    Not speaking Spanish and reading subtitles made it quite disorienting, because not just do they talk fast (its Spanish afterall), they were reading Shakespeare, so it's double so disorienting.
