I love this film. Wrote my MA thesis on it (well this and The Wrestler, but really THIS). I love her. Not only is she brilliant in this role, but she was able to trim her body into what it needed to be. She controlled her eating, her life, her needs and desires. She cut herself down to size. This is my present to myself.
Meanwhile, she is her own villain. I'm thinking that I am a villain. If not to myself to my student teacher. I hate that I had to crush someone. And I didn't want to, but I can't hide that he's not strong enough. What can I do? Do I lie to him? Do I shuffle him along?
Fuck. My. Life.
