    sex, lies, and videotape

    ★★★★★

    “Have you ever been on television?”
    ”No, why?”
    Just curious.”

    preternaturally prophetic vis-a-vis the internet. speaks to Generation Z like a fucking clairvoyent (no pun intended).

    Swiss Army Man

    ★★★½

    the first film to exist inside a Tim & Eric sketch.

    i understand the whole “rebirth” idea, finding practical and emotional use in one another, but like...this thing is so weirdly put together it takes some getting used to. theres those few moments where it gets playful enough to warm your heart. and then the relationship gets fucking weird and kinda muddies everything. feels like an SNL skit that eventually finds its soul. go watch it./!/?

    ★★★★★

    memories of boats and colors and touches and fucking and weed and love. framed for us to see its flaws but fully sympathize with how idealistic it is in the moment. a meta-tragedy.

    ★★★★★

    beautifully, intimately constructed. trying to think of anything else but this fucking blew me away.
