    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★

    i used to be terrified of returning any affection from people who i thought were romantically interested in me, even if i liked them, because i would flash through my brain the inevitable stakes of getting involved, the unwillingness to potentially cause harm and heartbreak, always deciding that the easiest path forward was always no path at all. this movie ended and i thought it was so sweet, the assertion that even if it's doomed it's still worth it, even…

    people may say it’s slight, but also isn’t life? broad swaths of my life have been just about finding my footing, and i can’t even fly.
