In Gerwig's "feminist" utopia, Ken dolls have subjective desire but Barbie dolls don't. In her film, Barbie awkwardly changes the subject when Ken asks to sleep over at the Dream House. There are no scissoring scenes. The erasure of feminine jouissance makes this film anti-woman.

He observed that severe starvation in preparation for the Joker role initially left him feeling very weak, but once he reached his goal weight he suddenly felt very energised and obtained a new awareness of his body.

@TorgoTown @considercast @GretchenHHH @IndieWire Agreed but we can't hold Joaquin responsible for the phrasing of the headline. The writer of the article is deliberately removing nuance to get an outraged response from readers, and it has worked judging by this thread.

In the process of writing my book the best ideas occurred during extended sessions of staring into space, letting frenetic mental activity happen as it wants to. Your creative projects take shape inside you in moments when you think you're being unproductive. Give yourself grace.

@ninagrewal97 Those who "cut off" caring people do so not necessarily to be cruel, but because they secretly believe they don't deserve the joy they found. Part of a larger pattern of lack of self-care and low self-investment. We can't convince them otherwise, so we shine our light elsewhere✨

In CLIMAX (2018), Gaspar Noé casts Psyche as a devious prankster; she floods the dancers with passion, pain, and poison. They're like pieces of fruit floating in the spiked sangria punchbowl, soaking up toxins. Psyche in Ancient Greek = soul; invisible entity animating the body.
