    SILENCE. WRITERS WRITING.” 

    It’s in the tenderness hidden amidst the sternness of Bill Murray’s voice. It’s in the furrow of Timothée Chalamet’s brow. It’s in the cracks sounding up and down Léa Seydoux’s back as she stretches. It’s in the way Jeffrey Wright crosses his legs as he sits. It’s in the widening of Frances McDormand’s eyes. It’s in the way Saoirse Ronan pulls the trigger.
    It’s in the promptness of Mathieu Amalric’s movements. It’s in the way Adrien Brody…

    We’re suffocating.” 

    The way I shot this movie straight into my veins when I was 15 and suicidal and so unbelievably angry at the world... Such a bizarre sensation to return to it now, nearly a decade later, older and still angry at the world. 

    Adults are so quick to say teens are over dramatic, that their problems aren’t as serious as they think. But teenage girlhood really is agony incarnate. Sexualized by just about every man you pass, discredited…

    Lou

    ★½

    Began to feel deeply frustrated with how Lou turned out, particularly in how intensely in your face the exposition-heavy dialogue is, but then I remembered how many male led action flicks like that there are and I decided that it’s okay that Lou exists. So everyone sit down and watch Lou, it’s okay because I said so.

    I would actually like more female-led, questionably average, violent revenge movies!! Let Allison Janey be a hot, murderous GILF and Jurnee Smollett be…

    Men

    ★★½

    A man is falling past the window and dandelion seeds are blowing away in the wind. The universe is making wishes the likes of which we hope to god we never see. 

    A ravenous red that feels like a gaping maw, a visual swallowing. “Do you know what I mean?”. Red, red, red, such vivid reds, and then green. Lush, vibrant greens leaping out like an embrace. “Have your eyes really seen?” 

    British folk horror is such a rich realm…

    “I’m still copying you though.” 
    “I know. Now copy this.
    ” 

    I am standing in a room and I am looking at my dad.

    It is 1996 and he is 33 years old and he is journaling hour by hour the day that I am born. He is the first person to ever put my name to paper. It is 2008 and he is 45 years old and he is gripping my arms too tight and screaming at me, so close I…

    Malignant

    ★★

    … I am on my knees begging writers and directors to stop using female body trauma (rape/miscarriages/abuse) as brief plot devices or virtually the only exposition surrounding female characters’ backstories, its mentions featured for maybe ten minutes of screen time, only to then miraculously be completely forgotten or never properly and healthily addressed. Please. I am so tired. 

    Malignant is what I’d call a big ole razzle dazzle of nonsense. It has the visuals of a multi-million dollar funded project,…
