Southland Tales

Southland Tales ★★★★★

this thing lives in my memory somewhat in pieces - You’ve got what I remember, which is its political prescience and juvenile chaos and collapsing screens within screens, and how it feels in my bones, which is majestic and rapturous and buzzing in my bones. the characters speak in tongues, take shifts as the story’s oracle, fluid karma in the subpixels of the very aughts graphic design, aesthetic genres evoked as camp and tossed aside, a quantum entanglement of mythic and historiographic dissociation at the core of America itself.
