    I find myself being attracted to films that contradict themselves. It’s much more thematically compelling when a film comes of as entertaining trash but is covered in thought, symbolism and effort. I think this is the best example of that behind Spring Breakers. Its a total trashy acid trip but its full of clever humour, sexual frustration, queer symbolism and endless amounts of creativity. This was practically made for me and I’m so glad I found this at the point of life I am in right now.

It’s completely simple and bare bones in the best way. The audience reacts as the characters react, they feel as the characters feel. Stripped of melodrama to create one of the most believable romances of the century. Some how the last couple minutes were more anxiety inducing than the movie I watched about human trafficking last night, Sciamma you are a genius.

Micheal Goi knows how to depict these situations all to well.  The rape scene is beyond unnecessary and the dialogue is beyond repair. All of this is very suspicious. Micheal Goi has claimed to have based a conversation between the two…

     Atmospherically and tonally superior to the original . Felt like the first one took itself to seriously. Considering how ridiculous Chucky’s character is, this doesn’t really work at all. This one takes that tone and comes at a more entertaining note. Chucky actually delivers some genuinely funny lines and the actors also seem like they had fun playing their roles. Atmospherically this also just knows what it’s about, toys and trauma. Uses shadow like a traditional horror movie…
