Only logging as a reminder to actually watch this film in the future. I was too busy eating pussy during my initial viewing to care/pay attention.
Knife + Heart is literally the "I’m gonna give the gays everything they want" meme.
Its cinematography and M83’s original music are breathtaking. While aesthetics are among the film’s best attributes, I was mostly touched by its exploration of desire, heartache, emptiness, fear and longing through our lead character Anne, who is brilliantly acted by Vanessa Paradis.
