eme lang (｡ŏ﹏ŏ)
rewatched it because all i could think about is lesbian aubrey plaza in suits :( and i wanted to re-assess my initial thoughts on the movie.
i still p much stand by what i wrote in my first review except the first bullet point because i couldn't get myself to wholly buy into this in the end :-( but i still like this anyway bc i like seeing gays happy and riley is really such a great character! patron saint of friendship <3
- damn i can't believe i sat through this...... i wanted to leave so bad lol it was clunky and performative feMaLE EmPoWErmENt pa more
- this was interesting at first but the levelling (revenge?) tactics got old too fast, the backstory of the gun went on for too long that i almost forgot what was happening in the beginning, the ending became unrewarding and just made me feel like it was thrown in so she can clean her conscience…
first ozu film! so lovely; i loved the composition, the way he would focus on the character's faces when they talk, and how he inexplicitly includes people/events. was thinking about First Love/Late Spring throughout most of it bc a few days ago i read smth abt how Mitski's film influences are underrated tas shet... ok gets ko na sobrang ganda it made the song x100 more emo hu hu hu
(update: omg fake news pala sabi ni ate mitski wala daw talagang konek yung song sa movie... based on feelings lang daw yung title wahaha)
