Swallow

Swallow ★★★★

Sometimes overacted and way over-written (especially in the first half) but overall really entertaining and gripping. Resonates a lot with the desire for control over your life and body by any means possible, and also the feeling you had as an adolescent (although the protagonist here isn’t one) to experiment with your body, and how those things you did in private felt like some dirty secret you had to keep from the rest of the world. 


Also, extremely hard to watch if you’re squeamish. I usually seek out things that push my boundaries and make me uncomfortable, but I almost had to turn this off after a turning point moment in the beginning.
