LOVE. BELIEVE. OCTOBER.
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
There’s an abundance of bad things happening right now, and it’s hard not to be sucked into that black hole of sadness, so let’s have a puppy party shall we.
Because, let’s face it, dogs never grow up.
ADDED BONUS, PUPS IN MOTION!!!
Thank you for this.
THEY ARE LIKE LITTLE SAUSAGES MADE OF PUPPY.
sometimes i realize there are so many things i won’t remember in 50 years like the way the sky looked this morning and all the dogs i saw today and my mom’s voice and i get so sad i never want to forget
The Snow White Murder Case may appear to be a simple case of whodunit, spiced with the use of social media to condemn a suspected murderer and the ability (or lack thereof) of a TV broadcast news company to verify its source. In this case, we are talking about a mysterious, yet “plain looking” young woman who is suspected of murdering her beautiful and popular co-worker, thus the use of Snow White to reflect the victim’s appearance.
Mao Inoue, who is considered one of the youngest Best Actress winners in the Japan Academy Prize (for Rebirth) turned in the most amazing performance as the “plain” murder-suspect Shirono. Mao, who is famous for Hana Yori Dango and for her sustained movie and drama performances through the years has really grown into a compelling performer. The glamorous actress who is the cover of numerous fashion and movie magazines is nothing but plain, but her transformation in this movie is absolute.
