Waco (2018) was so good
Portrait of a Lady On Fire (2019) dir Céline Sciamma
“The film is set in the 18th century, where queer love was illegitimate and marriage was often a business proposition and nothing more. Marianne (Noémie Merlant) is hired to paint the portrait of an aristocrat Héloïse (Adèle Haenel). The portrait is to be sent off to the man Héloïse is to marry, but Héloïse is not pleased by the marriage and is refusing to pose for the portrait. Marianne’s task is to accompany Héloïse on walks by day, secretly observing her, and then paint the portrait from memory by night. Marianne does so, but secret looks become looks of adoration, and those looks are returned.” - Depulia Online
Call Me By Your Name (2017)
Reading screenplays has been my main pastime this quarantine. Ari Aster is a great writer.
the cure to self-sabotage is to anchor yourself to the universal truth that you are worth it. you are worth the effort. you are worth the difficulty, you are worth the time, you are worth the consideration. there is never a point in your life, in time itself, that you are not worth it. return to this truth when you feel yourself slipping. do not let it go.
