i see you joined in 2014 so i think you missed it but there is lots of historical precedent for appreciation threads. this was a callback of sorts, with the twist being that for once the subject matter warrants the title
Cannot stop thinking about this. There’s a scene in the middle which involves singing and it blew me away. The ending, a nice little coda, is also insane. A truly powerful movie about the power of art/painting/cinema.
this is completely lovely. found the formalism slightly stifling, but its visually amazing and daring and the final 5 minutes transmogrify the whole thing into the sublime. its an ode to love and the creative spirit and how those may be one and the same.
as far as formal "historical attitudes threatening the love of lesbians" dramas go, i liked this a lot more than Carol
and yes, "that scene" in the middle is transcendent
