Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.
True Romance (1993) Dir. Tony Scott
Continuing with my theme of watching classic movies I’ve never seen before, tonight: True Romance.

i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce
two dads tell their adopted son that he is adopted
he looks at them and bursts into tears
"i thought you were my fathers … but you were just faux pas"
i am happy this post is getting notes because we need more queer representation in awful jokes
fight for social justice today; add lgbtqia people to shitty horrible groan-inducing life-ruining puns
Weight should be like virginity.
Once you lose it you can’t get it back.
Ohhhh. I thought you were gonna say “Weight should be like virginity: a societal ideal by which we shouldn’t measure our personal worth.”

#227 - American Mary
And 2013 brings us to the conclusion of the My Years in Horror project, and I can’t think of a better movie to end on than American Mary.
You could watch this movie multiple times and still wonder, “what is this?” And I don’t mean that in a David Lynchian “HUH?!” kind of way, American Mary is just so unlike your typical horror film. Clearly there are influences from Frankenstein to May, but Mary is still very much its own thing.
We’ve seen monster movies, we’ve seen someone slowly go insane, but thanks to a dazzling performance from the criminally-underrated Katharine Isabelle, this is something different. Any movie can make the monsters, slay the monsters, or have its protagonist become the monster, but Isabelle’s work takes an often uncomplicated genre and turns it into something much, much deeper.
Lumping it in with other “revenge” films does Mary a disservice as well, as directors Jen & Sylvia Soska take it far beyond that simple trope and deliver the best horror movie of last year. Infinitely re-watchable and as the poster says, “a modern horror masterpiece.”
