    This is perfection in its most raw form. It is by definition perfection in itself. An entity formed only when one truly sees it. Not meant for understanding, but instead for reflection. To Love what others see it as; as if everyone existed in a different moment of the same film. In return it becomes infinite. An infinite entity drawing a different emotion from every participant of its creation. Perfection.

    Operation Toussaint: Operation Underground Railroad and the Fight to End Modern Day Slavery


    So fascinating to me how the entire world can come together, to build a mega-franchise about a group of characters who fight Nazi’s, robots, and aliens. But the second it gets too real for people, it ends up like this. A documentary practically lost in the depths of YouTube, with a few thousand views. I think the truth is, it scares people.

And the second tone: any time Anya Taylor-Joy was on screen, cause I think I was accidentally falling in love.

    Until now.
    This movie is beyond phenomenal, it doesn’t follow the basic guidelines any normal movie puts in place no it plows through those and makes its own path, you can’t describe this story like “unexpected” and “emotional” because although true those just seem like feeble terms after watching this movie, luckily they do have a word for that: indescribable. And honestly indescribable is the only thing that comes…

    This. Is. Cinema…

    This was no movie, this… this was pure poetry. Every single scene was so rich with detail in every aspect of the movie. The visuals were nearly beyond comprehension, the score cried out with emotion, and the writing flowed like a river: calm when it should be and a roaring current capable of killing when it needed to be yet staying consistent throughout and never wavering. The acting was taken to the limit of human performance, which…
