    Scavenger Hunt Number 39 — June

    20. A film that you or someone in your family owns the soundtrack for.

    I used to play this soundtrack on repeat, literal repeat. Was it my love for the music itself...yes but no. It was my love for every feeling this film makes me feel. I feel serene, entranced, lost in time and space, lost in its beauty, its everything... Maybe I should just go and watch this again.

    Like Tears in Rain

    “Taylor Swift? Can’t we just go to this? Do we have to steal stuff?”
    — Amita, Ocean's 8 (2018)

    Are there issues with this movie, yes. Am I going to count them into my rating, no.

    I have never been more excited for an acting lineup; we have Bullock, Blanchett, Hathaway, Bonham Carter, Rhianna, Paulson, Kaling, & Awkwafina. The glory of a full woman cast list where a man is literally 9th on the list. Praise!

    Bullock…

    Carol is literally about women trying to get some space from these patriarchal men for like two freaking minutes. Oh my god, for fuck sake men not everything is about you, leave them alone for a hot fucking second!

    It is almost a year since I last watched this film, I gave it 5 stars the first two times and now I want to give it 6 stars just to emphasise that it deserves that 5 stars because I love this film even more since then.

    There is real magic at play here. I find it so hard to explain but I know we have all felt it when watching this masterpiece. This is more than a film somehow,…
