    The Gospel According to André

    ★★★

    i think the most damning part of this doc was seeing anna wintour openly admit that she didn't have as much knowledge and expertise as andré and that's why she kept him around, until she decided she didn't need him anymore.

  • The Half of It

    The Half of It

    ★★½

    1. they really picked the hottest guy to be ellie’s dad and hid him in that bathrobe the entire movie!!!!!

    2. very brave of alice wu to open with a paper drawing animated sequence of plato’s proto-humans... especially when this superior version exists: youtu.be/_zU3U7E1Odc

    ★★

    i found long stretches of this to be tedious and incomprehensible. monochromatic coloring has got to go from these movies! please!!!

    the joker / harley subplot felt disjointed from the primary narrative, like it should have been its own movie? this version of their relationship wasn’t terrible, but perhaps it is my enduring fondness for anime-level melodrama coloring my judgment. i’ve no strong opinion about the joker, i don’t find it as bad as people were making this interpretation out…

    ★★★★

    beautiful. the spare narrative leaves room for the characters to breathe and for the viewer to be immersed into their world.

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★½

    it bothers me that the jo/alcott comparison is laid on so thickly. iirc, alcott fucking loved writing torrid sensationalistic stories and was actually urged by her publisher to write little women. so to have jo’s story arc essentially be moving from writing newspaper short stories she’s not that excited about to finding her true voice and ~vision~ in her semi-autobiographical novel to me was quite saccharine and like, undercuts the best part of writing, which is that, yes u can…
