From this point on, I will now never not be fascinated by how I saw this my freshman year of high school and thought it was the most bizarre, boring and fucked up film I had ever seen. NOW, I think it might be one of the most sensitive and beautiful things I've ever witnessed in my entire life. Such an incredibly bold, powerful, and genuine experiment. So deeply profoundly human in every moment. The scene between Solomon and his mother in the basement as she tap dances is easily top 10 movie moments of all-time. Idk, I'm kinda at a loss for words right now and how dumb I used to be.

The Korine retrospective at Music Box right now is all about giving his films another look and appreciating the beauty that he strives for and this repertory screening may have just done that trick for me.
