    Priscilla

    Elvis was a fuckin idiot. I already knew this, but this movie erased the last bit of sympathy I had for him. It’s almost like the public need to be continually reminded of the shit things men they love do, or they will just willfully forget them. For this, Coppola has done us all a service with Priscilla. It’s typically anodyne and surface-driven, as per all her films, there’s no real emotional connection made accessible, but it’s kind of the…

    Under the Cherry Moon

    Unrateable! How is every man in this film simultaneously chasing tail, AND the gayest man you’ve ever met? The pivot, the turning point, the exact moment between “Prince I find hot” and “Prince I find not”- this is 1986 and Prince is already entering his 90s high fashion womens wear era, and this film is a batshit vision board of everything to come. Tricky has all the best lines and chews up every scene he’s given and Kristen Scott Thomas luminously squirms, in obvious discomfort, under the purple one’s grandiose and aggressive PDA’s.

    Total camp classic. Nothing not to love. Only stopped myself giving it more stars because it feels a bit lite or something but I will absolutely watch this again. If this was 1998 I would be getting high and hiring this from Movieland almost weekly to watch at movie nights and sleepovers. I also don’t believe for a SECOND M3gan’s resemblance to Nicole Kidman x the Olsen twins is accidental.

    Todd Haynes is gaslighting that this is not camp. There is an ourobouros principle at work in this film- the apparently serious artist, studying the serious story, to get at some serious truth, only to reveal at the end more campy tabloid fodder produced from it (almost identical to the made for tv movie the serious artist watches for research). Todd Haynes is also the serious artist mining the tabloid fodder for serious truths, asking us the audience, did I…
