the cinematography in this movie is insane

  • person: why do you like mad max so much?
  • what i mean: there are no less than 14 women protagonists who all have agency and are narrators of their own stories and none of them exist as male wish fulfillment or as a side kick to a male character and they all have different personalities and purposes and their strengths and weaknesses are presented without making some statement about women being better or less than men but also they use their femininity in extremely powerful ways which demonstrates that women are different than men but no less valuable to the story and they are put on equal playing field with the men in the movie and are not sexualized or demeaned despite the fact that five of them are escaping sex slavery and the sexual violence against them is never shown and one of the messages of the movie is that even these women in positions of 'privilege' are still oppressed and are victims of male violence and entitlement which reminds me that another message of the movie is the destructive nature of toxic masculinity and even the good guys in the movie are not praised or unnecessarily affirmed by the women when they do good things but instead there is a sort of mutual trust and friendship built that is way more realistic and powerful and basically it passes every test associated with how women are treated in movies and also it's just a really damn good movie with amazing visuals and insane amounts of world building and beautiful cinematography and real messages about our world
  • what i say: there's a guy with a flame throwing guitar

Anlamak istiyorum insan nasıl boş bir hayat yaşayabilir.
Hiçbir şey ile dolu bir hayat nasıl yaşanır? (01:34:44) 

Bir erkek her şeyini değiştirebilir.
Yüzünü, evini, ailesini, kız arkadaşını, dinini, tanrısını…
Yine de değiştiremeyeceği bir şey var Benjamin, tutkularını değiştiremez!

Eninde sonunda bir tek hatıralar kalıyor elimizde. (01:46:13)

Get to know me: favourite things
↳ movies: I rymden finns inga känslor (2010)

“How can you go from happy to sad like that?”
“Imagine you have a circle, like this. Round. And up here, at the top, is the saddest you can get. Then you’re less sad. You’re almost okay. You’re fine. You’re happy, psyched, almost in a state of euphoria, and then just insanely happy when you reach the top. On the other side of sad. It’s like it couldn’t get any better. But it’s so easy to tip over the edge and go sad.”

  • Gabbeh: Mohsen Makhmalbaf, 1996 - İran


hem bu şehirde daha çok kız sevmeliyiz
kirmen gibi dönüyor dünya dediğin
her an ölebiliriz!

Selim Temo, Jübile s.32 “güleryüzlü sosyalist”

  •  Gabbeh:

“Sevda alıp başını gitmek ister ve tamamlanmak. Geride bıraktıklarına dönüp bakmak istemez, gördüğü sadece görebildiğidir, peşinde olduğu/peşinden gelen… ve öyküler gizlidir insanın yüreğinde, gözlerinde, kelimelerinde, yüreğinden sızan her şeyde: resimde, şiirde, öyküde, nakışta, kilimde… Eğer gözleriniz anlamı yakalamakta mahirse, gördüğünüz sadece şey/nesne değildir. Aşar onu muhayyileniz ve o şey’de gizlenen yüreği renk renk görürsünüz/izlersiniz. Doğu’da aşklar hep bilinmezliğe gebedir, çoğunlukla da ayrılıkla hem-demdir. Doğu’da aşk, bu yüzden, söylencelerle vücut bulur. İlmek ilmek yüreklerde dokunur, renk renk yüreklere dokunur. Mavi kavuşma, sarı mutluluk, yeşil bereket, kara ölüm, hüzün, ayrılık… olur ama bir şekilde dile gelir, bir şekilde.”
