    “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

    A man dreams of an extraordinary scientific breakthrough. He tinkers with the idea in the back of his mind while moving closer to gaining the capability to achieve it. After some time, his ability increases and  The American Dream rings true. He succeeds. And after he finds out that it has done what it needed to do he exits a building to noise. 

    Mankind Screams. 

    It’s a kind of visceral sound…

    - Why do you come here?
    - Why do you?
    - Cause I’m having ego problems. I want to be worshipped and adored.

    Yeah, it’s supposedly a murder mystery where a cop tries to find out who’s killing a bunch of gay men but it’s also an insanely detailed story about self discovery? The atmosphere here is so incredibly gay it’s hard to believe that a straight man directed and starred in this.

Inevitably the moment passes. While the cultural footprint of what they did remains the person does not unless they want to remain. But there’s a lot they’re gonna have…

    “Uncle Jonny made my dress
    that cheap spandex, she looks a mess”

    Perfect. I missed like thirty minutes and was in a really bad mood until I walked into the theater. Literally could not be irritated at all during that. There’s so much to say about this and I’d end up writing a novel but there’s few bodies of work that really celebrate being young, gifted, GAY and black. I’m really happy about how queerness is centered here as well.…

    “She sure is young isn’t she? Like a little girl.”

    Does what Marie-Antoinette (2005) did for Marie-Antoinette for Priscilla Presley. That movie was a biopic blended itself with the coming-of-age genre in order to humanize her. This essentially feels like a kind of dark fairytale. Priscilla’s brought into Elvis Presley’s in the way of the dreams of many young girls around the world. There are times she enjoys it but it drains her. It takes years away from her. 

    It’s…

    I'm pretty sure that if you took scans of my brain or like monitored it while I watched this movie you’d see all the shit in there lighting up like a pinball machine
