she’s literally me-ed my way through this movie 

I don’t think I will ever stop thinking about this movie. Will write more tomorrow


—————— next day thoughts ——————


This movie was stressful for me because my ocd does not FUCK WITH ROUTINES. I had the ac blasting because it made me so nervous. This film is gloriously grueling and long, and everyone should see it. While watching it, I was bored (obviously! It gets tiring watching someone peel potatoes for 5 minutes straight and this movie is over 3 hours long) and so I multitasked by also playing Minecraft. This film feels like a slow motion train wreck. You know what’s going to happen because you know you’re watching a train wreck and you’ve seen this before, so you think you can look away. Somehow, you’re still drawn to it, watching all the pieces crash against each other. This metaphor is so poorly worded but in conclusion you should sit through this. It’s magically mundane
