Fleabag breaks the fourth wall and then breaks our hearts.
But then the scene changes. The Priest’s eyebrows furrow in surprise. “What was that?” he asks, looking at Fleabag. “You just went somewhere,” he tells her accusingly, glancing in the same direction she turns when she looks at the camera. Fleabag claims to not understand, and, panicked, she looks at the viewer once again, this time with alarm on her face. “There!” he says. “Where did you just go?” Fleabag tries to shake it off. “Nowhere,” she tells him. He only sort of accepts this, shrugging. Fleabag turns to the camera once again, this time in shock. He’s seen her. He’s seen us.


Reader, I gasped.

(6) Someone’s daughter on Twitter: "One thing I love about The Last Jedi was how much the symbolic imagery told its own story. The writing/direction/set design were all so carefully curated and layered. Especially how they handled Rey’s coming-of-age
One thing I love about The Last Jedi was how much the symbolic imagery told its own story. The writing/direction/set design were all so carefully curated and layered. Especially how they handled Rey’s coming-of-age and her journey of self discovery/exploring her own sexuality.

For Cinephiles, Netflix Is Less and Less an Option | KQED Arts
Netflix didn’t want to talk to me about their movie catalogue, leaving me to rely on the speculation of a couple of video store folks that the company’s DVD selection is shrinking most likely because it is not replacing damaged disks.

How Guillermo del Toro Convinced Alfonso Cuarón to Direct Harry Potter | IndieWire
Del Toro then launched into a explicative-filled rant in order to convince Cuarón not to underestimate “Potter” just because it was a hugely popular film and book series. “He says, ‘Fuckin’ skinny, you’re such a fuckin’ arrogant bastard. You are going right now to the fuckin’ bookshop and get the books and you’re going to read them and you call me right away,'” Cuarón said. “When he talks to you like that, well, you have to go to the bookshop.”

Clara Mae on Twitter: "Watching a WETA workshop vid about GitS & they kind of answered what Rila Fukushima's role was: a face cast for the animatronic geisha… https://t.co/XBFsILmrSq"
At the very least this reminds me a lot of what we saw in Ex Machina. White presenting android walks out looking human. Asian one does not

& in Ex Machina as well, it's the Asian looking robot that's defaced/destroyed while the white looking robot benefits from her destruction

This is interesting to me because people say race doesn't matter with androids. But if you look at numerous sci-fi films, it does, actually.

It matters in what the writers do to the body of the AI/android/cyborg that's presenting as a POC versus the ones presenting as white

If one (non human) character is coded as more human than the others, tendency is often to gravitate to that one with human characteristics
