    If I Die, Forgive Me

    ★★★★★

    on the way back in the subway i overheard two students talking about the movie and praising how well they were able to recreate the 90s by not making it look too modern. how they were able to show well what a "shitty" place it was to live in. my heart sank because that's just how the country looks today.
