    Never gonna be able to listen to Amnesiac ever again without going into a daze. 

    Visceral & spellbinding, a cerebral slow-burn that weaves itself into your head before tying a knot so tight you’re unable breathe when it’s over. 
    It takes a hot second to fully bring me in, but I found it far more devastating and terrifying as it moved on. 
    This might be one of the first times I genuinely cannot think straight & left dumbfounded after a film ended; this will stay with me for a long time. 

    Denis honestly is one of our greatest living directors.

    Number 72.

    Your legacy is defined not only through who you know, but also how those choose to remember you by.  
    The perception of oneself sometimes isn’t until the end of the line when everything is behind you, everyone is gone, and it’s just you and your mind to recollect the good & the bad. 

    What kind of man makes a call like that…

    Don’t close the door all the way on your way out…

    I can't wait to walk into the theater for IT and see a bunch of disrespectful and uncaring teenagers snapchatting, texting, and talking the whole time while screaming and whimpering at every second that Pennywise is on, and me just sitting there wanting to beat the shit out of every single one of them but instead just attempt to ignore them and watch the film. 

    Why does today's teenage generation have to ruin (most of) the theater experience?
