    man it must fucking suck to have to direct a james cameron script 

    sucks because the techs in this are some of the best since speed racer but ya wow that script pretty much ruins the experience


    oh also Hugo looks like the love baby of Drake Bell and a Jonas Brother

    i don’t think i’ve ever seen a film borrow so much yet still feel like it’s own beast


    it’s jodorowsky’s drugs, argento’s violence, zulawski’s physicality, grandrieux’s bodies, and pasolini’s sex all thrown into one acid induced melting pot 

    this pulls at the fucking skin of its audience and should absolutely be considered a major work moving forward

    ★★★★½

    Reynolds is the perfect character for Day-Lewis to bid farewell through. He’s a man whose lifelong passion serves as both sustinence and poison. His fascination in and love for fabric constantly undercut by its necessity for flesh. A man who dresses to disguise, to perform, to exist. When that is taken away - what is there but the heart wrenching and cruel come down? Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
