"You named your kid Stiles Stilinski?"
The problem with true detective is that I have little to no interest in harrelson and mcconaughey and their detective adventures, and I’m not super interested in the mystery except I really really want to know how the king in yellow fits in. NOTHING ELSE INTERESTS ME. ONLY THE LITERARY ALLUSIONS THAT I DON’T PROPERLY UNDERSTAND.
Song of my soul, my voice is dead;
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
By no means the most important thing in world news, but I can’t believe we still let the BBC send John Simpson into warzones. He’s nearly 70 years old!
One of the many great things about Some Like It Hot is that it totally recognises what it’s like for women to be objectified. The first time you see Sugar, it’s that iconic pan-up jello-on-springs shot, where she is just The Object. But Jerry and Joe almost immediately learn what it’s like to be the object of sexual harassment. And Jerry, who here wants to be “a bull again”, by the end of the film has embraced his Daphne persona and realised that femininity isn’t just something to be either objectified or rejected.
tl;dr this film says more interesting things about gender and sexual politics than most media today.
