and so, the two of us became the wind
2020 NO MORE STAR RATINGS – likes are for films i love
impossible to begrudge anyone who says this movie is transphobic, of course. but god. i feel it, you know? shrinking away from people's touch and freezing at confrontation and feeling monstrous, just like a shrieking hissing nightmarish creature whose gaping mouth can swallow anyone whole. i dunno folks. even knowing the "twist" i was deeply shaken by the ending. this is all time stuff for me i think.
idiots will call this a staggering retelling of the myth of prometheus through the eyes of the american laborer, the fire of the gods becoming success under capitalism, an unattainable fiction that drives men to maddened violence in their pursuit
geniuses will understand that this is a movie about getting drunk and almost kissing ur homie and then getting even drunker and tenderly holding each other as you drift off to sleep
