    Birds of Paradise

    ★★★★½

    okay, I LOVE a beautiful, well-stylized film. it will always be such a pleasure to watch. 

    birds of paradise is so well set. it is full of pretty colors and ballet. the backgrounds are full and the actresses are breathtaking. there are a few scenes that are dull, or they don’t give the 100% I want to see. but yeah this movie rocks. it’s literally a ballet competition … this is that shit I would read as a preteen. I lick it up like I can’t get enough. 

    also i am down SO bad for diana silvers.

    ★★★★

    manliness is also gentleness and tenderness and consideration 

    plot twist they were both gay— anybody think of that?

    those shots in the forest… oh momma I gotta get that painted into my brain.

    … you won’t be disappointed, take it from agnes varda. 

    nothing could convince me of anything more than if either agnes varda or taylor swift recommends it.

    criterion challenge 2022 film #20

    not only will I be framing every eye makeup look after this movie, but I will also be relating so much harder to “valley of the dolls” by marina and the diamonds as this movie has finally brought a new perspective to the song, featured on my most favorite album of all time, electra heart.

    I'm Your Woman

    ★★½

    rewatching house of cards w my bf who has never seen it and immediately had to watch something new with rachel brosnahan in it bc I love her so much in HoC. 

    this story is LONG ok. it takes a long time to say very little. i had a lot of problems with aspects, like having the baby be the most important part of the story to then just giving him over to a “stranger” for the whole last third.…

    horror x 52 2022 film #15

    this movie was so painfully british and the older I get, the worse alfred hitchcock (who used to be my most fav director of all time) ends up being in terms of a good person. 
    “I heard he r*pes them before?”
    “well yes I guess it’s nice to think there is a silver lining” 
    “oh youre baaad” 
    she didn’t even say that she just went “oooh” excitedly and turned away. I added it in to give more humanity to a comment like this. 
    what the fuck?? 

    anyway. honestly a boorish story. too many close ups of british food😮‍💨🤢

    my girl, you are hungry. eat-a the ravioli! 

    oh my god if my mans and I break up i’m moving straight to italy. it has always been the plan but after this movie, it’s officially the destination. 
    katharine hepburn rly is one of the best. her comedic timing built with her sensuality & grace is such a beautiful talent. love her sm.
