    "If you look for meaning, you miss everything that happens"
    -Andrei Tarkovsky

    The reason I chose to open my review with this quote is to help explain my approach to most films, but especially the work of David Lynch. After first viewing, my thoughts are never fully crystallized, so forgive me if this review isn't super well-crafted. The use of this quote is of course not to say that Lynch's works don't have any meaning, or that they are impervious…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    We all have that one work. The one work that bridges the gap between our youthful understanding of the medium and opens up so many new, more mature possibilities. The work that "pops the cherry," if you will. A work that redefines the way you look at a particular medium and sets a benchmark for future works to come. I don't know about you, but I have one such work for each of my favorite media.

    The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes

    ★★★½

    Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

    ★★★

    Despite being ableist, fat phobic, and a genuinely not good film, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo was laugh out loud funny and somehow got me invested in its main romance.

    What a way to turn 24.

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★★

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a film that has refused to leave my mind for the past week or so.

    When I first saw the film about a year or so ago, I did not understand why people considered it a horror masterpiece. I was not a fan of the pacing as the first two thirds of the film were incredibly slow to me and it did not get interesting until the final third. Despite that, the film failed to…
