Carol is live on Netflix. Come join me as I watch it on loop.
Carol Blackout 2K17
“This is Carol asking Therese on a damn cross-country trip like I would ask someone if they wanted to share an appetizer.”
Roxane Gay is not here for your stupidity about Milo, the WNBA is not here for Candice Wiggins’ cry of reverse-homophobia, this new movie from Kristen Stewart looks good (but not as good as Totino), Hillary and Kate redux, and yes: Cate Blanchett at Stonewall.
I Still Know What You Did in Waterloo
Women who love women express it like this: with their faces just inches from each other, mouths slightly open like they’re about to kiss but not actually kissing, no, no, no, it’s too taboo, perhaps they will never kiss and just exist in this void until the end of time.
Topics include trailers for Transparent Season 3 and Rocky Horror Picture Show, Cameron Esposito & Rhea Butcher’s new TV show, Delta censoring Carol, Quinn/Rachel on UnReal and so many more crucial stories for your best life!
The story that keeps giving.
“There is something essential and unshakable between Carol and Abby. And the fact that this friendship exists between two gay women in a mainstream Hollywood movie, and remains largely unmarred by drama or a romantic entanglement, is pretty damn special too.”
Now you can own the Greatest Lesbian Movie of All Time, for free!
These are the most talked about, most acclaimed, most beloved and most watched lesbian movies that were birthed into the world after Autostraddle dot com.
“If Carol really wanted an Oscar for Best Picture, Haynes should have had Harge and Carol reunite as he sewed a severed arm back onto her body and chased away the bear that mauled her, waving his torch and singing the song of heroic, indispensable men and dudes and fellas and lads and boys and brotherhoods, all along the way.”
“Also known as ‘spiraling,’ this is the emotional comedown. Like drugs, your serotonin levels have been depleted and possibly you’re dehydrated. You’ve witnessed for maybe the first time in your life a realistic portrayal of all of those times your heart has screamed until it got short of breath and girl you are reeeeeeeling.”
Carol and Tangerine snagged nine Independent Sprit Award nominations, Pretty Little Liars gives hints about the time jump, Rosie arrives on Empire, and Sarah Paulson thinks love is a bitch.
Samira Wiley’s photoshoot & interview with Mimi Magazine, New York Magazine’s feature story on Carol, 28 icons on their favorite lesbian cultural artifacts, a new trailer for “The Wiz,” Lena Waithe interviewed by Vogue, Drew Barrymore’s possible dip in the lady-pond and more!
Perhaps the best praise I can give Carol is that ten minutes into it, I forgot it was my job to be a critic. Twenty minutes in, I forgot I was watching a movie at all.
Three upcoming films show May/December lesbian relationships, Lady Gaga and Angela Bassett play ex-lovers in American Horror Story: Hotel, some Duke students are freaking out about reading “Fun Home” and more important stories!
Miley Cyrus hated Hannah Montana, Kristen Stewart and Jane Lynch chatted merrily on morning TV, Ellen accepted another Teen Choice Award with a heartwarming speech, Cara Delevingne is done with modeling, Julia Nunes released a brand new video, and more!
More and more actors are calling out Hollywood’s gender inequality, Kim Kardashian says Bruce Jenner is beautiful, feminists have had it with Game of Thrones, Mad Men flips the script on Joan and Peggy, Leisha Hailey is coming to ABC Family, and Queen Latifah doesn’t care if you didn’t like her lesbian sex scene in Bessie.
Let us mourn our loss together: the whisper of a promise of a world we never knew.
