    'nobody taught you to be a man. it bothers you to be looked at this way?' <3 <3
    love this movie so so so much, a new door in my mind tentatively unlocking with each rewatch. the new age is probably the best display (bar maybe return of the player) of one of my absolute fav tolkinisms, the man tiptoeing on the edge of self awareness but ultimately succumbing to his own selfish interests, able to moralise his terrible actions…

    ★★★★★

    the two minute bathroom suicide scene in this movie makes me feel more emotions than i usually go through in an entire day, the confusion evident on the poor girl’s face as she furrows her brow and the music trembles in the water that fills her ears. i want to reach out and cradle her and make it all okay.

    if you want to know how irritating this movie is, at one point during kurt's livestream the words 'dasha and anna are super cool!' appear onscreen, a nod to the filmmaker’s close friends who are known across the internet ‘cause they act like dickheads for attention. personally, this moment really devalued the whole affair of spree, which otherwise is pretty funny, and summed up exactly what i found hypocritical - every aspect of online culture i find obnoxious has reached…
