    Sometimes a film comes along that feels like it was made specifically for you, for this exact moment in your life. Not sure I’ll ever be able to put into words how much this means to me. For now, I’ll say that it holds a very special place in my heart.

    As accurate a reflection of the ennui and disillusionment that comes with being a teen in a go-nowhere town as there’s ever been on screen. The circumstances might be slightly elevated (albeit loosely based on a true story), but the way it examines the perspectives of these teens is shockingly true to life in a way that I don’t think any other film has so efficiently captured.

    The "I love my dead gay son!" scene in Heathers turned into an unironic, maudlin, deeply insulting story of how a gay teen's suicide became the tragic backstory for his shitty father's redemption story. This is a movie that genuinely uses the memory of the teen (a real person) to say that he forgives his father for neglecting him and not doing anything to protect him from the extreme abuse that was being inflicted upon him.

    And, of course, that…
