Every. Single. Time.


Hello.

This is a screen capture from Terrence Malick's film Badlands.

In liberal arts school I learned you were supposed to write it like this:

Terrence Malick's Badlands (1973).

I was a dutiful student and checked out Ways of Seeing on reserve from library as was recommended for students in this class and let me tell you:

If I thought that I had seen before, trust me, I had not, not really.


Terrence Malick's film Badlands (1973) features several weird animal encounters, starting with the first scene. Which. You know involves a dare to eat a dead dog, which triggers a debate about the breed of said, dead, dog. Which. Said, kinda, squishy taxonomies permeates

Terrence Malick's film Badlands (1973):


I guess the point I am after being. That iguana is not like a native plains faunal element and in that seconds-long cut to the lizard the whole edifice of the film comes crashing down and you are only fixated on what a neotropical iguana is doing on the high plains for the rest of the film including the subsequent car chase and shootout because you are just like wtf is that iguana doing there!?

Thirty five days without a "like"

only
so
it might be so
only
and
