    Taylor Swift: Miss Americana

    ME!™, post-logging onto TMDB, inputting all of this sight unseen masterpiece's available information the *moment* it was announced, and forcing a Letterboxd data import that created its page: Well hello! Let's celebrate that!

    A definite high point, to date, in my storied 13-year-old career as a Swiftie (just underneath when she liked and reposted a picture of ME!™ to her profile on [RIP] The Swift Life).

It’s (gasp!) still sexy as hell…

    ★★★★★

    If I had all this, I would be kinder.

    Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite lithely walks a slick, impossibly intelligent tight rope between uproarious social satire and pulse-pounding thriller. It’s a living Rubik’s Cube—with bricks colored in hues of painfully relevant class struggle—that never allows itself to be fully solved, even when you finally think you’ve got it all figured out (and thank goodness for that). Once it ropes you in, you’re left both ravenously hungry for more and functionally devastated over the…
