    High concept trash if you may. On the surface an artsy but disgusting and oppressive exploitation that I hate and love at the same time, however, a natural progression toward Foucaultian philosophy and beyond for someone who has been so occupied with bodies and power structures in her cinema. Denis is a master.

    Inorganic reproduction, lower class citizens and animals treated as weak and expendable confined into a literal concrete cube. There is none of the sexiness related to technological…

    3 years and 1 month ago I joined Letterboxd basically as a film novice who had seen nothing but some Hollywood classics. Since then I've come across a variety of people who blew my mind with their enthusiasm, writing skills, intelligence, knowledge and kindness. Sometimes I can’t believe this site is free and people just throw insanely detailed analysis out there only to reach like two people or something. You all are honestly the most wonderful people I’ve met online…

    Wrote a short essay about Kaczynski and Thoreau for school based on this movie and another Benning which I’ve reviewed before, Two Cabins. Benning’s project has been an interesting one to check out because there are clear similarities between the men and through them you can learn a lot about the individualist mindset so prevalent in America. Walden and Civil Disobedience have a lot of acclaimed thoughts regarding the powers that control us or the way we’re confined to live…

    The presence of nature is unusual for a thriller like this. I guess it ties to the innocence of children which I find to be a little reductive. It could also be another religious connection when the children sleep in a barn for example. Yet, I think it's most interesting when seen as a moment that marks the transition to Lillian Gish's portion. From the reactionary town, hatred and blindness toward healing and love. Powell has driven the kids through…

    My 1000th log and approximately 250th review after 11 months on this site. The community has been such an inspiration for me in finding new movies to watch and how I perceive them. Every person I follow almost always writes something that resonates with me. I'm impressed how you find things I hadn't considered and your observations make me excited to discover new films and make this hobby last my whole life. During periods like these when I have very…

    Might have been because I was really hungover and emotions were at the surface but the final scene of Christmas Day when Diana sees Boleyn and Larrain cuts together multiple snippets of Diana as the camera glides everywhere around her while she's in different clothes, dancing, running, laughing, crying is one of my favorite scenes of 2021 and the first time I've ever cried because a scene is just damn beautifully orchestrated.

    Other than that I had a few issues…
