    An Elephant Sitting Still

    ★★★★★

    i had a dream the other night and i don't have many dreams, in which i rewatched an elephant sitting still and my reaction was that it didn't affect me as much as it did the first time i saw it. i thought this was a shame but concluded that the movie just wasn't as amazing as i made it out to be. naturally, given how uncommon it is for me to dream of an entire movie i had to…

    all the things that used to be inside of me… now they are all outside. i can see all the things inside you. but the inside of me… is empty.

    you are next to a guy in the dry cleaners, waiting for your turn. the storekeeper goes inside for a split second to get the other guy's clothes, he starts muttering something under his breath. he is jittery, unstable. what is he talking about? who is he talking about? is…

    it is by far so much better than the first film and this wasn’t clear to me during the first part of the movie but it really turned into something mesmerizing and breathtaking near the end. it was also this movie which motivated me pick the book up and actually read it (something i thought of but never got to doing after the first one). you can like this or not, but sci-fi or fantasy movies that are on this…

    imagine if the most insufferable english major you knew wrote a movie and thought people in real life talk the way people in her drafted novel do. i don't know if the writer is an english major, but this is all i could think. also idk what the budget for this was but this movie takes place in the emptiest high school you can ever set foot in.

    it is so weird to me to see that people liked it so much. i think the director (despite being turkish) is as unfamiliar to turkish culture as her actors/actresses and the people who are praising the movie so highly here are. this really comes off as orientalist in a way that really, really annoyed me. this is a movie that is trying to appeal to western audiences and it succeeds at that. weirdly, as a turkish woman who has…

    dull movie with REALLY bland characters. it is extremely xenophobic/racist no matter what anyone says to try to argue with me on this. tell me they weren't drawn to each other because they are both white, equally boring and both whining about spending some time in a different country. boo-hoo i have to use chopsticks, the shower head was lower than i expected and i can only speak one language :(( help :((((

    put me in a 5-star hotel in tokyo like that and see if i complain once.
