    every time i watch this i get something different out of it!!! today it’s about when you realize that the friend you’ve devoted years of your life to loving has changed into someone you barely recognize — someone who used to make you feel like the truest version of yourself, but who now dredges up your most vile insecurities. the only way to save your soul is to amputate them like a gangrenous limb, and that process is just as painful as it sounds. 

    in short, it’s about how sometimes you gotta ghost your toxic friend before you become the toxic friend 👻

    carrie coon and jude law. CARRIE COON and jude law. carrie coon and JUDE LAW. CARRIE COON AND JUDE LAW!!!!!!!

    so many dramas about upper-class families on the verge of collapse, of frustrated housewives and lying husbands, but what elevates The Nest above its oft-stagnant sub-genre is that the doomed couple in question is CARRIE COON AND JUDE LAW. it's blonde-on-blonde emotional violence of the highest caliber, fermenting within the stone walls of their frigid manor, the antithesis of homey comfort. carrie coon is on her gena rowlands shit. jude law is on his Closer (2004) shit. i'm on my Don't Let The Academy Ignore Them shit

    i like dane dehaan! i do! i really do! but dane dehaan as james dean? dane dehaan as james dean giving multiple long, rambling monologues that you barely understand because he mumbles all his lines? dane dehaan as james dean taking valuable screen time away from the objectively less interesting photographer character played by robert pattinson? and worst of all ... dane dehaan as james dean interacting with eartha kitt but…

    hm ... i get that carpenter’s intention is to poke fun at stale tropes about east asian mysticism and damsels in distress, but it feels more imitative than subversive. i’m also very very very wary of when a plot revolves around rescuing a woman who spends most of her screen time unconscious (even though Tenet came out 35+ years later i will still call it the Tenet Effect).

    CHAPTER 6: THE BAD MOTHER'S HANDBOOK (2007)
    DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE POSTER!!! poster salaciously and falsely implies that robert pattinson is the protagonist and that catherine tate is the bad mother who takes advantage of him ... in reality, this is the premise: what if juno focused entirely on the mother/daughter relationship, what if robert pattinson played paulie bleeker, and what if it was all really really really really really bad? 🤔

    asked my roommate what she wanted to watch and she simply said “space or ghosts.”

    clearly, intensely, MAJORLY influenced by cassavetes, which i had no idea about going in!! the story is split into two distinct parts, and the second half finds aubrey plaza going full Opening Night (plaza has previously talked about her love of both elaine may and cassavetes).

    at its core, the film probes artists' relentless quest for authenticity, and posits two conflicting questions:
    -if someone is manipulated into feeling and behaving in certain ways, are those feelings and behavior truly genuine?…
