siobhan’s review published on Letterboxd:
“mighty and dreadful beast. with you, we purge our most unholy affekts. we banish you now to the deepest recesses, where you may reflect on your wickedness.”
wow. i just love this movie so much. every time i visit it i discover things and find new meaning in everything, and i don’t think i’ll ever get tired of watching it. it’s quickly become my favourite of the year, and now i’m in the process of writing a research paper on it for school (also an excuse to justify watching it so many times). as gruesome as the movie is, it always fills my heart with a cathartic sense of joy that is strange but i welcome it.
it is horrible and it is beautiful.
