I date straight men so I've seen a lot of bad movies
Women Talking 2022
This thing ending with a song by the damn Monkees is all you need to know about the disconnect in this film between a violent power structure that supposedly allowed its victims to meet and plot openly against their oppressors (IN DAYLIGHT NO LESS) and actual, lived, documented, historical reality.
While walking out of this screening in bemusement and disappointment, Fred Hampton got blown to bits a second time, this time just for giggles, because let’s be for real.
I’ll leave it to the film critics to fancy up the global collection of EO reviews but I do love it when tiny vignettes are tucked into tiny pockets of story like delightfully forbidden pieces of butterscotch candy. Isabelle Huppert was on screen for no more than 3 seconds and I died as she glanced even accidentally in my direction. The soccer goalie swallowed my heart whole. EO was an absolute treasure, losing him crushed each and every soul he met along with my own. Godspeed, donkey.

this was less of an historical document than it is fucking current events and, for that reason alone, it is well worth the few hours of your time
(as long as the white citizenry considers property damage to be more of an egregious crime than harm to the black body, nothing will change in favor of justice and equality; it will be forever 1963)

As of this writing, the early reviews here on letterboxd are averaging in the 3.3 star range, and I’m not sure if it’s because director Richard Stanley is a relative unknown or because people are still mad at Nic Cage over Face/Off or maybe they are put off that the color Lovecraft insists is “indescribable” turns out to be neon magenta pink-like. But this is a good movie.
My boyfriend is the Lovecraft fan. I’d genuinely never heard of the…
