Just a dumb bitch who has no taste.
Sometimes you love someone because of who they are and sometimes you love someone despite who they are and Blindspotting reminded me of that—that sometimes you feel like a well that doesn’t dry, cursed to do all the caring for the people around you. Beyond that, Blindspotting was stunning poetry. Frightening in a way that’s parallel to the main character’s daily anxieties. Daveed Diggs is friendly, is familiar, is awestriking. The movie moved through him effortlessly. And Rafael Casal is an artist, my heart broke and stretched for him and his bottom piece grill. I’m amazed by this movie.
As a half Asian girl, as a lover of symmetry and colors and typography and big romantic gestures, as a believer in the sweetness of young love and daydreams and goodness and living in your own head—this movie meant so so much to me. As soon as it ended I started it over. Lara Jean is real and kind. She reminds me of me. I’m so happy this movie was made.
