    The 2017 Queer Films Challenge

    A film directed by the Wachowski sisters

    "The truth is, I couldn't have been more proud of you. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right."

    I usually try to avoid rewatches on challenges, but that was literally impossible with this category as I've seen every single film the Wachowski Sisters have ever made. They are, quite possibly, my favorite filmmakers. Not only…

    1 A Film Nominated for Best Picture in 1939

    Frankly, my dear, I can't fucking believe I wasted almost 4 hours of my life watching pro-Confederacy revisionist propaganda. Nor can I believe that, even during the height of Segregation, it was lauded by critics and was nominated for and won an unprecedented number of Academy Awards. Americans are so forgiving of white supremacy when it comes from within our own borders, it just makes me…
