Annette ★★★★★

rewatched and realized I never logged it the first time i saw it… probably because i was left speechless 

i will never sing again / shunning the lights at night / i will never sing again / smashing every lamp i see!” 

understandably Annette is not everyone’s cup of tea, but i remain *very* much here for this bizarre dark opera and the absurd, dryly comedic spectacle of its self-aware theatrics. and i got literal chills from the last scene on both viewings. 

would like to request that more films that are as strange as this one keep getting made, please 🙏
