    Horror in October: 4/馃

    "We'll never have the courage" - "You don't know me."

    The premise of 'two women come together to plot the killing of the man who abused them' executed in such an unexpectedly nailblting and tense manner, forming such a suspenseful and captivating captivating that I had to follow this great advice immediately after the credits ended.

    Michel (Paul Meurisse) plays the role of the detestable and abusive headmaster/patriarch really well. And the on-screen chemistry between Christina鈥

    "Those satisfied with the borscht... two steps forward!"

    CW: maggots, death

    Revolutionary in technical scope, execution and content, Battleship Potemkin is known as an influential cornerstone of early cinema history. Its visual achievements are vast and striking, a sight to behold, and rightfully lauded and taught to this day,

    The impressions watching it left me with are numerous. It's a film that happens to tackle a lot of things I think about regularly, and it does so 96鈥

    reality and simulation intertwined; extraordinary action setpieces; a deceptively otherworldly, yet real world; us vs, the peak of corporations' control over our lives; selves confined and weaponized - our life's purpose enforced upon us, hell, our identity and societal role assigned at birth; our interactions in the outside world precisely manufactured; staying true to yourself, radical empathy and communal care as the only ways to break down the barriers which divide us; the rejection of the idea anyone should be鈥

    Titane

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    CW: self-harm, violence, r*pe threats, queerphobia, incest, abuse

    Disclaimer: I refer to the protagonist as Alexia because that's the name she chose in the end.

    Titane has garnered a reputation as a film who throws at lot of shocking things at the viewer - it's touted as provocative and transgressive. And how could it not be? It starts off with the car incident who shaped our protagonist. Time skip, and et voil谩, we follow them as a grown-up performing at鈥

    Happy Together

    鈽呪槄鈽呪槄

    moments of
    happiness
    intimacy
    togetherness
    burned into our memory

    so deeply
    vividly engrained
    to the point of
    almost helplessly
    gravitating back
    to their origin
    no matter how far
    we part
    and without fail

    surpressing the resurfacing memories of
    conflict
    hurt
    toxicity
    combating them by
    feigning invulnerability
    taking control
    and nurturing a one-sided love
    through the pain

    ultimately coping by
    shrouding oneself in precious moments of
    the fleeting happiness
    remembering the good times
    and the promise of a better tomorrow
