    The dreams of those who've fallen! The hopes of those who'll follow! Those two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix! Drilling a path towards tomorrow!

    (Lots of spoilers. Not using the tag because the thing is almost 15 years old, but yeah.)

    As I sit here, totally out of tears, it is fucking impossible to believe this show started with a little boy and his adopted big brother causing mischief in an underground village.

    To be honest,…

    The 2017 Queer Films Challenge

    A film directed by the Wachowski sisters

    "The truth is, I couldn't have been more proud of you. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right."

    I usually try to avoid rewatches on challenges, but that was literally impossible with this category as I've seen every single film the Wachowski Sisters have ever made. They are, quite possibly, my favorite filmmakers. Not only…

    Gone with the Wind

    Frankly, my dear, I can't fucking believe I wasted almost 4 hours of my life watching pro-Confederacy revisionist propaganda. Nor can I believe that, even during the height of Segregation, it was lauded by critics and was nominated for and won an unprecedented number of Academy Awards. Americans are so forgiving of white supremacy when it comes from within our own borders, it just makes me want to vomit.

    And like, okay, if this were a technically brilliant film with…

    *deep breath.* *sigh.* *nervous pause.*

    ok, look.

    i get that there's actually stuff to sort thru here. i get that the movie very passionately argues that it's not just "haha omg look at these weirdos." despite that being so easy and so tempting. i mean... so, so tempting. i get as i'm typing that out loud that it makes me sound like a terrible, mean-spirited person. i hope that the body of work i've presented to u all on this…
