    Yep, she’s definitely a tramp.

    Most of the characters in this are real arseholes. I found it quite hard to watch and not very entertaining. As for its narrative on the treatment of black people in 1960’s America and the assumptions made around biracial relationships, many other films say the same thing but better and with more insight and sensitivity.

    I can see why people talk about it.
    It’s like that time I clicked β€˜update’ on my Mac without realising there wasn’t enough space left, rendering it useless without an operating system and unable to install a new one, and I... just... wished...
