☆ Makoto Shinkai(2016) – “Kimi no Na wa” PV #1 ↳ when I wake up, for some reason I’m crying I’ve always been searching for someone and something I a m s e a r c h i n g f o r y o u , w h o m I h a v e n e v e r m e t y e t
Is video game voice acting something you want to pursue going forward? Well yeah, I enjoyed this experience a lot. I want to be loyal to Lexi, obviously. I’ve been very lucky insofar as I’ve managed to cross mediums my entire career, like stage, and theatre, and film, and tv, and now, computer gaming. I would like to keep on doing all of them for a very long time. Not 275 years, but a long time.
also this is not the first time m. night shyamalan has been blatantly ableist towards people with mental illness, and disabilities.
in the sixth sense, it wasn’t directly related to any one mental illness but there was a preoccupation with psychiatric and mental illness and the ~creepiness of it all. in the opening scene, the main character, a psychiatrist, is assaulted in his own home by a previous patient.
in his film the village, there is a character who appears to have a very poorly represented form of autism, and he turns out to be a violent and a villain, and the “scariest” part of the movie.
in the visit, which was released last year, the film dramatized a psychological and neurological phenomenon called “sundowning” which occurs most often in elderly people, where dementia symptoms may be exacerbated by fall of night; the “monsters” in the film were in fact an older couple whose sundowning prompted them to become violent.
and now of course, there’s split, which unapologetically turns people with dissociative identity disorder into dangerous murderers. from the trailer, it also draws on any other “scary” mental illness or symptom to make it even more thrilling for neurotypical people.
m. night shyamalan is a persistent and blatant ableist. his films rely heavily on the stigmatized of mental illness, psychiatry, and disability. he profits off of the oppression of mentally ill people.
Ok but please consider sincerely three having date nights once a week and alternating who picks the date like first week is Evan, next is Connor, then Jared, and then all three of them agree on something special at the end of every month (because lowkey they probably got together near the end of a month and thats kind of how they celebrate their love)
