    Hannah Gadsby: Nanette


    Just watched this a second time and it's absolutely gutting.

    First, the whole piece is fantastic just on the surface text level. Gadsby does a fantastic job conveying her queer experience of shame and her woman's experience of misogyny and male chauvinism. It's all insightful and personal and great material.

    What a movie! Wow I can't believe I hadn't seen this before. Instant classic of the 70s. Campy horror about pagans conducting free love and ritual human sacrifice. And so British! Just lovely. It recalls Village of the Damned in a lot of ways only instead of cold war mind control being the menace, it's promiscuous hippies.

    I feel like this film is full of tropes that almost, but not quite get quoted in every other movie ever. The creepy…
