    ★★★½

    this movie is mad. fucking mad.

    I never use the word “mad”, but it seems like the perfect descriptor for this. It’s such a strange creature...

    I did like it though. It’s so energized and insane that it works well for the most part, except that some parts seem to drag on a bit.

    Tim Curry is great, and each player really shines through their character. Sometimes the male suspects do kind of come off as bland, but I really enjoyed it.

    There’s so much to say but I think I might need to process it...

    ★★★★★

    This came out when I was 13. I wasn’t ready to watch it then. But, then again, I will never really be ready to watch Carol.

    With each viewing I fall more and more in love with the characters. Carol (the movie and the character) are/is so beautiful that I reach a point of such strong transfiction and pure focus that my brain almost doesn’t believe I’m capable of (fyi: I have slight attention issues). I stop thinking, contemplating, understanding, and even breathing…
