what’s the matter, don’t you want to be on tv?
The most quietly haunting scene in this film for me is jupe recounting the gordy’s home incident to oj and emerald through an snl sketch which exploited the tragedy for laughs. The cut to his younger self watching the incident, traumatised, in contrast to present day him excitedly telling the story showing how his desire for spectacle has corrupted him. He never realises that, just like gordy, he was chewed up and spat out by an industry that never really cared about him. Instead he spends his later years in an amusement park where he sells his trauma to excited patrons until he’s *literally* consumed by his obsession with spectacle.
How does this film get better every time lol
