    while not the ideal way to handle the subject matter, i really do appreciate this doc for what it is.

    absolutely loved this! i loved okuno’s short film Slut and had high hopes for this, and this totally met those expectations.

    brb getting married to rob pattinson to this song!!!

    on a serious note, overall this was good and had a lot going for it! the action scenes, the incredible score, sweaty emo robert pattinson; the works! however, the pacing and overall length of this movie is ridiculous, and the story devolving into what it did (a failed social commentary about the corruption of policing institutions and the effects that hoarding wealth has on the individual and the society around them…featuring…

    Certain Women

    ★★★★½

    something about seeing women continuing through their lives and achieving some sort of satisfaction despite their livelihoods dominated by external factors outside of their control is so reaffirming…

  • Love, Simon

    Love, Simon

    ★★★★★

    this movie depicts a very privileged & cookie-cutter depiction of coming out and it promotes ethics of queer tolerance, rather than freedom, but still the most problematic thing about this film is the fact that bram was making out with a minion at the halloween party…like wtf is up with that???

  • Fire Island

    Fire Island

    ★★★

    boys by charli xcx, heart to break by kim petras, jason AND whole life by perfume genius, and sometimes by britney spears needle drops (including a britney cover by muna)…i collapsed several times throughout this film!!!
