I cannot express to you enough just how solid a grasp I have on the concept of living one’s life to the fullest. Recent proof of this is when U.S. Netflix finally dropped the 2015 Oscar nominated but snubbed film Carol and I watched it on loop for over 12 hours.
Oh, that sounds bad, and in no way beneficial to me or anyone for that matter? Well, I’ll give you two reasons you’re wrong: not only does watching something you’ve already seen at least ten times another five times in a row give you access to the easter eggs often missed by the casual viewer, it gives you a broken brain from which to draw bananas conclusions. For example, about Carol specifically, that it is – along with one the greatest love stories of all time – a horror/thriller movie lost in the edits. Join me on this journey.
(e)rin (r)eally (i)s (n)ot well
The very best kind of not well
to be honest, the most scary part is seeing the Weinstein Company logo
too true. I really felt the “A-YIKES” subtitle.
I’M WIDE AWAKE I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE AWAKE IN MY LIFE.
never go on a boat alone with therese
Yeah, that was scary, Let!
Also, loving that meme, Chandra! xD
Oh my god. That’s got me.
Why is comment editing not an option.
Never saw this one before.
Is it on Tumbrl? I want to reblog it.
For some reason I assumed @chandra made it!
I forgot it could have existed on the internet before this comment thread
I made it! Feel free to reblog
@Chandra Thank you!
Comment award? Comment award!
This might end in homicide, but at least there’s no Richard.
Maybe they can join up and kill him together. That would be a good twist.
Instead of directors commentary, they just make the whole movie an alternate score, I bet it could work
Ok real talk back when the teaser trailer was very first released I honest to Carol thought this was what the movie was going to be.
To be honest, me too! For like a bit xD
I love this! Thank you Erin! Also, I plan on watching this on a 12-hour loop as well on Christmas (maybe Thanksgiving, maybe both?!)! I wanna see what I catch with each viewing!
On knowing how to live one’s life to the fullest; one of these Carol appreciation articles inspired me to rewatch Carol, then look up the kinds of cameras Therese uses in the movie.
if it were based on a Sarah Waters novel, honestly
Hahahahahahahahahaha. This is the best. Really inspired (and actually pretty chilling).
I fear that music is going to be playing on loop in my head the rest of the day.
You missed the part where Rindy’s head does a 360
C: I wonder if you might help me find this doll for my daughter.
T: Bright Betsy. Oh, she cries. And wets herself. And you’ll wet yourself too when you find out what else she does
this is beautiful, and I would watch the hell out of that movie
It was that good, uh?
This is…….. amazing. And also pretty much in Rooney Mara’s wheelhouse.
obviously i would also watch this version forever.
“more mashed potatoes, Carol?” At last, someone gets what a terror of a line that is!
that was my favourite part too!
This was amazing and hilarious and I guffawed at least twice. Thank you, Erin.
However! I respectfully submit that Carol has always been a suspenseful thriller. Consider that the original author (Highsmith) also wrote The Talented Mr. Ripley and Stranger On A Train. The forbiddenness of the lesbian relationship is the “crime” that creates the tension of this story (plus the totally one-sided point of view in the book, which keeps Carol mysterious, and subsequently dangerous). Since we don’t think of homosexuality as taboo (or criminal) anymore, it loses some of its sense of dire consequence.
Nagy and Haynes both talk about this in interviews sometimes!
I have never been so concerned about mashed potatoes.
Thought: you’re a genius
Other thought: are you ok?
E R I N.
this is wonderful
I created an account specifically to comment on this video, which is the most amazing thing I have seen in possibly ever.
