enchanting, daydreamy, and stunning! this movie is so trans too. creating and molding your own womanhood from scratch, acknowledging that womanhood is not born but it is learned. the tenderness of friendships between women, how those women you find in your life create you, just as much as you create them. forming bonds that transcend romance and friendship. that creative energy flowing between both of you over a decade apart, still feeling the warmth of one another so close by.…
exploitation by way of Douglas Sirk. captures that sleaze of 70’s gay NYC better than anyone else could. naturalistic to a point that i felt like i was watching home movies. just a bunch of friends hanging out turning tricks for cash. it felt so authentic. which is what I love about Andy Milligan. he also understood the inherent fagginess of melodrama! what a genius!!!!
the dreadfully light and sweet air surrounding nostalgia, how we will never be able to turn it all back, never be able to smell the lovely aroma of delusion for a time that may have not ever existed. the ever changing pools you surround yourself with will not keep you warm, you’ll get colder and colder until you’re face to face with it. and it’s monumental.
