    Ugh my energy level for watching films has been trash lately...It took me like a week to finish this, especially since most of it is people arguing about Big Leftist Ideals lol. In reflecting the revolutionary milieu of his day, Wakamatsu is sympathetic but certainly critical, depicting a militant group bogged down with tedious discourse and infighting. (Known as the “Four Seasons,” the group is split into factions commanded by leaders named after each season; secondary leaders and their underlings…

    Of course I watched this during Scorpio season lmao...I hyped The Duke of Burgundy up a lot in my head and it mostly delivered. I was kinda surprised that a man directed this tbh.

    The mountain is of an incantation, inmost and guttural. Those who bear horns are messengers of stigmata. The sores foretell. From an ossuary, a grim artifact. Crawling, swallowed, the murk and moss. Final resting grounds—pale corpses flung by hooded figures—the swamp receives...Candlelight is a callous witness.
