    Everything is there on paper until you remember that the words on paper were written by James Franco

    No I’m sorry you absolutely cannot play your own supercut over Lorde’s Supercut. That position is already taken. How could this be made any clearer

    Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    ★★★★★

    There’s a lot to be said about evoking deep loneliness without losing a laugh, and capturing the emotional pull of having a cat that sounds trivial until it happens to you. 

    I’d never given Melissa McCarthy much credit but this is a sensational turn, a really difficult and conflicted psyche played with gravity and outstanding sensibility. 

    A really special film about words and trust, confidence and pride, with a performance to remember.

    Hahahahahaha honestly I’m so sorry to the many people who have to deal with the consequences of the inflated sense of confidence and love for myself and all young women everywhere that this movie has given me

    Update: wow I guess I just love my mother the most??
