    An Elephant Sitting Still

    ★★★★★

    i had a dream the other night and i don't have many dreams, in which i rewatched an elephant sitting still and my reaction was that it didn't affect me as much as it did the first time i saw it. i thought this was a shame but concluded that the movie just wasn't as amazing as i made it out to be. naturally, given how uncommon it is for me to dream of an entire movie i had to…

    all the things that used to be inside of me… now they are all outside. i can see all the things inside you. but the inside of me… is empty.

    you are next to a guy in the dry cleaners, waiting for your turn. the storekeeper goes inside for a split second to get the other guy's clothes, he starts muttering something under his breath. he is jittery, unstable. what is he talking about? who is he talking about? is…

    literally the best thing that ever aired on television except for breaking bad and twin peaks (i mean i guess the list could go on but this is so fucking good i can't deal with it no matter how many times i rewatch it... i'm rewatching season 2 now and just remembered to add the mini-series here. it's such a good show and idc what anyone has to say about it. frankly, if you don't like this, it says a lot more about you than about me idc idc i'm a 5-year-old)

    it is so weird to me to see that people liked it so much. i think the director (despite being turkish) is as unfamiliar to turkish culture as her actors/actresses and the people who are praising the movie so highly here are. this really comes off as orientalist in a way that really, really annoyed me. this is a movie that is trying to appeal to western audiences and it succeeds at that. weirdly, as a turkish woman who has…

    after seeing countless of white people lose their minds on tiktok over poc raising great arguments on why this movie made them uncomfortable, i had this rising suspicion that it most likely straight-up sucks and i was not wrong! letterboxd's most loved (and whitest) reviewers who are very stingy when it comes to east asian cinema are also loving this which does not surprise me. some of the reviews are surprising as they list every single thing that's wrong with…
