according to letterboxd, there are 49 films entitled “Carmen” in their database, making it the most common title in film. as fate would have it, my name is carmen. so, logically, i feel obligated to watch them all.
loved this—esp bc i luv chloe sevigny—but my inner 14 yr old self felt sad. since i was 14, i’ve always wanted to dress up in miu miu due to the fact every young actress my age were all miu miu girls and i aspired to be like them. but alas, i’m not a rich nepotist kid.
still, this was shot beautifully and i wld die to own carmen’s green checkered miu miu coat. also loved the nod to the ultimate fellow carmen and my actual namesake, rita hayworth. was not expecting to see her here but i’m glad i did. it only makes sense.
