    Kill Your Darlings

    ★★★★

    i would watch approx 1 million movies about poetry. the aesthetics in this movie is everything i want. i wish i too was a sad student drinking red wine with my friends and talking about william butler yeats. i really like allen ginsberg, and enjoyed this look at his early life. both daniel radcliffe and dane dehaan are great. unbelievable that lucien carr did not want his name to be related to howl and other poems, because honestly??? what a compliment. also unbelievable that ginsberg's first published collection was howl!!! certainly gave me some new vision.

    poetry? what poetry? there's no poetry here
    football in the snow
    mud streaking across the field
    so archaic, 25 years ago
    lines and rules covered by the snow
    and the mud
    nobody would watch this kind of thing now
    it has a certain poetry

    every frame in this movie felt very finnish to me

    the plot and the acting were very understated. the characters are stoic, even when they lose their jobs or they're getting beat up, and somehow it makes you as a viewer react even more to their circumstances, because they don't seem to do it themselves.

    this is my second kaurismäki, and i will definitely be checking out more!

    i'll leave you with this article about the different finnish film language, and why it may be the reason that norwegians don't want to vacation in finland (link in swedish)

    ___________________________________________________________

    The Secret of Moonacre is one of those films that have been in my Netflix to-watch list pretty much since I got Netflix. Thankfully for me, this movie features unicorns, which makes it a perfect fit for the first movie of Scavenger Hunt #3!

    Maria Merryweather (as played by Dakota Blue Richards) has to move to Moonacre to live with her uncle after her…
