    I can’t believe it took me so long to finally watch this. It’s beyond its reputation. Surely one of the greatest films of all time, my choice for the best French film of all time, and certainly the greatest silent film of all time.

    In it, is some of the greatest uses of close-ups in cinematic history. A montage of faces capturing the disturbing spectrum of human reactions to banal atrocities and the scope of human emotions and psychology in…

    If you haven’t watched this and would like to, be aware that there are multiple scenes where animals are slaughtered on screen. You can see the pain and fear of the animals as they’re abused and killed in the film. Might not be easy for some to sit through. 

    Outside of the graphic animal slaughter, what struck me about this film, was it’s quietness. It doesn’t really comment on anything that takes place. Things just happen. And the big things…

    Ok, the animation is as good as everyone says it is. But I found the story quite boring, pretentious, and a catastrophic failure to communicate feminist themes.

    I HATED Deena. 

    Haaaaated her. 

    One of the most annoying characters I’ve ever seen in film history. Cringey, always playing victim, had no reason to hate Sam, every line of dialogue she uttered was annoying, and she was just an overall shitty person. Sam was entirely right to leave her. God she’s awful. 

    The movie was fun though. Would definitely watch the other two in the trilogy. It was silly in all the good ways. Didn’t take itself too seriously. Despite, creating the most annoying character in history the movie is pretty fun. It’s also pretty funny.
