  • globule galbene's rating of the film Love Will Tear Us Apart

    singurătatea ne va face felul. şi incapacitatea de a alege una dintre prăjituricile ce se perindă interminabil prin faţa ochilor, imens raion de patiserie genitală. fata din film are freză de ana karina, puseuri de copiliţă cleptomană, cinică şi ocazional violentă. mă întreb care dintre aceste două femei, cea din vivre sa vie, generoasă şi cerebrală, sau cea de aici, ce primeşte tampax în loc de flori, e mai 'reală'.
