ksenija’s review published on Letterboxd:
i’ve just been thinking about this for the hundredth time and i just think it’s really important to know that norma was fucked up but joe was worse cuz he knew she had attempts at suicide and depression and used/played her anyway. literally the whole ordeal happened cuz the men in her life were shitty.
like when she said just go his ass coulda left but no he fucking kisses her and plays the fuck out of her. he abused the power he had over her cuz he KNEW she’d be there with her money but to her the money never mattered because she was in love with him and wanted to be back on the screen cause it’s all she knew.
