    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    When I speak, nobody believes me, but when I write it down, everybody knows it to be true.

    Vincent Gallo as Flying Christ jumpscare. Inspired by The Andy Warhol Diaries to rewatch this, but I've been wanting to rewatch it for a long while anyway, so it was just the final push to get me to do it. Since I've seen this for the first time, I've found it super underrated, and I'm glad to still feel that way. As…

    It's a mistake to confuse pity with love.

    Ah, so this is the bad Stanley Kubrick movie. Interesting that this is for sure directed better than Fear and Desire, but I liked that way more than I liked this. The two notable positives I can say about Killer's Kiss is that both its direction and editing is very good. As I feel like he would conclusively develop with this, The Killing, and then his first acclaimed film Paths of Glory,…

    Something in the Way

    A whole lot of movie, and the most "genre film" a superhero movie has been in I'm not really sure how long. I don't know man, considering that sometimes this film subgenre forgets that it has its roots within the likes of crime thrillers, science fiction, fantasy and so on, it's wonderful to see a movie that somehow has its cake and eats it too with being "dark" of course while still pulpy and just over…

    "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

    In one word, grating. Before I say anything beyond that, I'm going to make something clear: I wholly get what Oliver Stone and company were doing here. You can't miss what this movie is supposed to be about. It's decent messaging. Of course we glorify killers in the media. Of course humans are hypocritical with violence. The way the film is made, I also understand that this movie is likely meant to…
