    there’s been so many words written about this movie that my review has been sitting, waiting to be written on my bedside table for days. I’m not sure where to start describing how much this movie means to me. just like Frances, my bedside table is a mess of the fragments of modern city living— old ticket stubs, a soda can, polaroid photos, and a dimmed light bulb. this film itself is just like those fragments; messy and bursting with…

    a couple weeks ago, I walked on a beach. the sky was gray, and the sand was virtually the same color, almost like they completely swirled together and merged as I walked farther and farther. it felt like the ending point of the universe. that feeling of wind against my body, the light splashes of waves, and the dull yet oddly vibrant sky, runs through me when watching this movie. it’s very slow at times, but feels like the only…

    ★★★

    can definitely see why people love this— there’s many cool creative flourishes: the 4th wall breaks, the talking to strangers on the streets, the scene when they’re talking to each other and there’s subtitles saying what they’re actually thinking, the animation sequence, etc. 

    butttttt this is one of the most condescending things i’ve seen in a while. I get that the main character is supposed to be intolerable (?), but it’s annoying how he also dares to pretend that he’s…

    ★★★★★

    I wish I could tell you why I love this so much, or how much I love it, but it’s something smaller and more delicate than words. It’s soft and pastel and Jesse and Celine’s love affair stretches like a pleasant yawn. Colors blurring together. Hair flowing, hands grazing in the breeze. Days dulling into night. I’m enthralled by how perfectly Before Sunrise captures the experience we all value more than ever... moving like a ghost through an urban setting at…

    THE OFFICIAL THROMBEY FAMILY SWEATERS RANKING:
    1. Ransom’s (Chris Evans) White Sweater: duh. it’s iconic. simple, yet effective. very snuggable and comfy. need i say more.

    2. Linda’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) Fushia Pink Sweater: truly dazzling. screams wealthy but not in a pretentious way. compliments her round glasses nicely. good, good.

    3. Great Nana’s Multi Layered Sweater: woooo. the underdog. reminds me of christmas in new york during the 1950s. probably smells dusty. very underrated.

    4. Marta’s (Ana De Armas)…
