    The Scary of Sixty-First

    A ghost story whose specters are as likely emissaries of the dead, tulpas unwittingly created by a desperately adrift living, or 5G flotsam, clogging up the collective psychic drain. In this phase of the post-postmodern, the proliferating symbols that populate our reality have truly lost their signifieds, opening not so much into a sinister network of hidden, conjectured meanings but an abyss of utter meaninglessness, a bloated, plodding cloud.

    does for calcium deficiency what Pet Sematary did for meningitis!

    legitimately tho - there's a trend out there to support this filmmaker, particularly in the last decade, that i truly cannot fathom as anything but cynical in a way that is a huge bummer. there's no crime in this film that isn't committed by Marvel movies (hates its stupid audience, at least four endings, politically retrograde), and to see it embraced by folks i generally look up to re: film…

    I wanted to pull out my Scarry and Agamben and find a way to talk about the horrific images in this film; if there is a picture of the carceral body, this is likely a particularly accurate iteration of it; I'm not sure that I gained much further information or understanding, but the testimony must be recorded/seen/heard.
