as the great humphrey bogart once said: "I was born when she kissed me. I died when she left me. I lived a few weeks while she loved me."

i didn't "watch" black phanter. i sat my white ass down LISTENED.
"What's your greatest ambition?"
"To become immortal, and then die."
A Woman Under the Influence 1974
So can we be friends, sweetly
Before my history ends?
I love you more than the world can contain
In its loneliest ramshackle head
cinema of empathy. to empathize with a person whose only goal is to surround and overwhelm the people around her with so much love, but can't for the life of her act it out in a way that's deemed normal by everyone. institutionalized for months by the person she cherished the most, and to return home…
Nine Inch Nails: Woodstock 94 1994
miss the good old days when a band can be fucked out of their minds and still perform some of the greatest songs ever conceived like it's no big deal. reznor is covered in mud & shit and looks like he just walked out of hell after beating the shit out of satan while high on 27 different drugs; I want him.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 2021
mid unfortunately (just like the show). good lord please let anime fans be free from the shackles of recency bias 🙏🙏
Irma Vep 1996
I did the math and I can safely say that the scene where Maggie Cheung is in her hotel room going feral as her 2 personas slowly converge while Tunic (Song for Karen) by Sonic Youth is playing in the background is, in fact, peak cinema.

Dead Ringers 1988
you are crucified by your own limitations. your blind chances cannot be changed; they are now irrevocable. you have had chances; you have not taken them. you are wallowing in original sin; your limitations.
"separation can be a... terrifying thing."
"nothing is a line. everything, everywhere, is always moving. forever. get used to it"
- succession, lion in the meadow
No Love Deep Web. a lo-fi techno-thriller of corporal espionage viewed through the lens of new french extremity. claustrophobic camera movement, disorienting editing, hazy sonic youth soundtrack, stoically detached performances, all are present in favor of strengthening the film's overarching point of showing a world obfuscated by decaying morals and desensitized by violent imagery. an inhuman technoscape filled with characters…
Jackass Forever 2022
not sure if this was a masterpiece when I was watching it but then johnny knoxville says "someday this war's gonna end" while his friend is being tortured by a group of paintball shooting soldiers & wee man is riding his own mini tank and I realized that this is actually the best movie ever made. do you think god stays in heaven because he, too, lives in fear of what he's created?
