    I sleep, and I dream of Ludwig. He is my love, my raison d'Γͺtre, le monde, les Γ©toiles, le ciel. My life is not ended, it waits to reunite with him. I, his love everlasting. Secreted away. To sleep. To wait. Je t'aime...

    But he unites with others.

    They join me in slumber, more restful than I. He has taken all that I have given and more. I will take what he does not give, what he places wrongly. My…

    One Self: Fish/Girl

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Created by Emily Hubley, daughter to expressionist animator Faith Hubley, the family influence and resemblance is clear, although One Self: Fish/Girl is a thing all its own. Something about it feels very 90s indie, in the best incarnation of that label. It's the music, the narration, the color palettes, the stilted fluidity of movement, the film grain, the media. Childhood fantasies bleeding into everyday life, coming of age, friendship and interaction, precocious philosophical teenage diary pages come to life.

  • Dead of Winter

    Dead of Winter

    Fairly dull, but in a watchable, background noise kind of way with a made-for-TV feel to it. It's very 80s and has big trapped-indoors-during-a-snowstorm mood, as well as Mary Steenburgen in three different roles. There's a pretty excellent Celtic knotwork stained glass window that was honestly the highlight of watching this for me lol.

    I'm pretty sure a goldfish gets stepped-on-to-death for real and for NO reason, so minus a star for that.

    Drag Me to Hell

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Actually starts off pretty brutal! People getting slapped around by an unseen force, thrown off balconies, and dragged into HELL! The score makes it clear this is meant to be both thrilling and darky comical, so I'm not sure what exactly I was expecting the first time through. The intro credits have absolutely sick pen and ink illustrations that bleed onto the page right before our eyes, detailing how the curse works, as inky black shadow demon hands stretch across…

    Stigmata

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A late 90s dark drama horror thriller with a heavy Catholic theme, possession, gushing blood, dirty clergy (and I'm not just talkin about all-too-tempting Irish scientist priest Gabriel Byrne), and mood for days. The fashion, the music, the repurposed art deco warehouse apartment, the color palettes, the color grading, the turn of the century graphical effects, it's all so 1999 in the absolute best way, and remains extremely watchable decades later.
