get to know me [1/50] movies: now you see me
Let me warn you. I want you to follow, because no matter what you think you might know, we will always be one step, three steps- seven steps ahead of you, and just when you think you’re catching up, that’s when we’ll be right behind you. And at no time will you be anywhere other than exactly where I want you to be. So come close, get all over me because the closer you think you are, the less you’ll actually see.

get to know me [2/50] movies: room

I’ve been in the world 37 hours. I’ve seen pancakes, and a stairs, and birds, and windows, and hundreds of cars. And clouds, and police, and doctors, and grandma and grandpa. But Ma says they don’t live together in the hammock house anymore. Grandma lives there with her friend Leo now. And Grandpa lives far away. I’ve seen persons with different faces, and bigness, and smells, talking all together. The world’s like all TV planets on at the same time, so I don’t know which way to look and listen. There’s doors and… more doors. And behind all the doors, there’s another inside, and another outside. And things happen, happen, happening. It never stops. Plus, the world’s always changing brightness, and hotness. And there’s invisible germs floating everywhere. When I was small, I only knew small things. But now I’m five, I know everything. 

The Blair Witch is the most terrifying villain in film history because, ultimately, the audience never *saw* her.  She’s an unknown entity.

And then there’s the sick implication at the very,very end of The Blair Witch Project movie that Heather actually did see her. Off-camera, of course 

And Heather fucking lost it and kept screaming and screaming for her life. Dear God, her insane yelling in the final few seconds of that film. It terrified me at 14. I didn’t sleep for days.

The point of the Blair Witch: Your imagination does all the work for you. More than any filmmaker ever could.

It’s about the individual and their very,very worst nightmare

Modern Movies Starring Asian Actors
This is a list of English speaking films that star Asian actors with main cast billing roles. This is a positive representation list that omits offensive/appropriative films.

Hey! I just started a Letterboxd account last night and started compiling a list of films that star Asian actors that have main cast billing (which means they’re a leading character or at least have their name on the film’s poster) in English speaking films.

I currently have 50 films on my list and I am very cautious about this listing being a POSITIVE list of films starring Asian actors (so no films that are deemably racist like The Wolverine starring Rila Fukushima or Gods of Egypt starring Elodie Yung and Courtney Eaton).

Please let me know below what films am I missing?

anonymous asked:

any good lgbt movies you'd recommend? :)

  • Carol (please tell me you’ve watched Carol)
  • Brokeback Mountain (most of you will have seen it, heartbreaking)
  • Imagine Me & You (happy romcom)
  • Weekend (bittersweet)
  • Maurice (read the book too!)
  • A Single Man (wonderfully shot but sad)
  • Wilde (if you have any interest in Oscar Wilde, also Stephen Fry)
  • But I’m A Cheerleader (a Classic)
  • Another Country (for the historical drama people)
  • Pride (the best!!)
  • The Normal Heart (prepare to cry for days)
  • I Killed My Mother (I love Xavier’s stuff)
  • The Way He Looks (adorable!)

That’s all I can think of on the spot but everyone feel free to add to this list!

“I want this one moment. It’s what I want in a relationship, which might explain why I’m single now. It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party! And you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining, and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end. And it’s this secret world that exists right there, in public, unnoticed that no one knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us but we don’t have the ability to perceive them?”
-Frances Ha (2012)
