Alita: Battle Angel

treat me like a doll
ill be super perfect
see the real me
buried in the plastic
whats this stuff
is it even flesh
is it even blood
is it even me

i built myself
from barely fitting parts
i still fall apart

fellas, it has the Wachowski touch: in recovering the (political and formal) clumsiness of blockbuster cinema from the corporate anonymity of Marvel and the overstylized deconstructions of Snyder and Rian Johnson it also finds a renewed emotional immediacy in a surprisingly tender account of embodied femininity. slice your tears in two
