    ★★★★½

    I’ll be honest, the first time I watched this movie everything in my mind was set on disliking it. I agreed with (and to an extent still do) the idea that Tessa Thompson didn’t necessarily pass. I’d seen her in enough movies that were in color to imagine that i wouldn’t be able to suspend my disbelief. Boy was I wrong. The performances were stellar but the film still left me a bit lost which I now attribute to a…

    When I was younger I used to cry a lot. It wasn’t something I was proud of at the time. I wanted to hold everything in. I know now that there’s nothing wrong with that as it means you’re in touch with your emotions. Regardless of that I still attended to hold everything in even if I’m getting better. These days I still to an extent-I rarely cry. But I do try to feel every emotion I can whenever possible.…

    Je, Tu, Il, Elle

    Wonderful movie about the unnamed lead just vibing her way throughout to day having various forms of sex with both a man and woman. One thing the man said kinda freaked me out but this is French movie so I’m glad I got out of it with only one thing giving me pause. I took a brief 10 second long nap and came back into it still pretty interested in what was going on. Sitting with this film as it played was a pretty cool experience. I think I like Akerman’s style.

    Finally giving this five stars on this watch because I think I get it. The fragmented and often upsetting nature of this movie used to really irritate me in the past despite none of it really feeling too unneeded. The Chang Chen and Tony section of the movie is really beautiful and this time that ending really got to me someone. Wong Kar Wai movies just begged to be rewatched into oblivion and this definitely benefits from it. Plus it’s such a rewarding thing to watch for pride like…wow.

    Incredibly well done and poetic. It’s simultaneously inviting and haunting with a tricky tone that constantly teeters between light-hearted and melancholy.Feels like a great way to show how life goes on after traumatic experiences. There’s always an after and there’s always multiple ways to live through it. Jenna Ortega is stellar and the cast all around is pretty excellent. The heaviness of the subject matter is definitely gonna take awhile to sink in for me but I still heavily recommend it. We’re gonna be talking about this one for a while

    One of the gayest movies I’ve ever seen in the best way possible. There’s something neat intoxicating about how fun and vibrant this movie manages to be while also being extremely and sadly accurate to the gay experience. The cast has insane chemistry, 
    and the script is hilarious with some of the funniest throwaway jokes I’ve seen in recent comedies and the most intriguing romances I’ve seen in awhile. Not to mention (I’m allowed to actually since it’s pride month)…
