When I went into Enemy, I knew a few things. I knew I was going to enjoy Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance, and I knew that I was going to see a very meaningful movie. I also knew it wouldn’t be easy to understand, and it would have hidden meanings. What I didn’t know, was that this movie is based on José Saramago’s novel, and that it has one of scariest jump scares I have ever encountered.
It was during a very late Friday night when I was scrolling endlessly on Tumblr and saw this great post, titled Describe Yourself in 3 Fictional Characters on Weartheworldwell‘s page. But instead of posting mine on Tumblr, I decided to share these three characters that describe me here.
In the beginning of the year, I shared a two part post highlighting 40 movies of this year that I caught my eye, and now, my list has significantly narrowed. Not only have I lost interest towards some of these movies, but due to my own schedule, I know I can’t manage to see all of them. So, I looked at that list, and added to that list, and finally realized that I need to see these following movies before the end of this year!
This month is focusing around school and college, and teen angst is well connected to both those topics. But since angst itself is a something that can happen outside education, I’ve selected movies that have more to do with teenagers and less to do with school.
Sitting behind the computer like, “how the hell do I do this writing thing?”, has been the general theme these past few weeks. I’m flustered, and I’m tired, and everything seems to be happening at the same time, so I have to choose. Today I chose to post, because I’ve been putting it off too long.
