a few of my favorite scenes

in no particular order:

  • the creepy kitty on the cover of cruel optimism
  • hideko’s scissoring grip during the handmaiden‘s third and most thrilling sex scene
  • the end of the first chapter in christina sharpe’s second book
  • every time frank wilderson writes the phrase “ontological impossibility”
  • joan didion’s commas
  • joan didion’s absent “and”
  • every vague montage of nicholas young’s face in crazy rich asians
  • the horizon of lack–said; utopia–muñoz ; these are moments
  • asian woman 1 screaming at audience, “songs of the dragons flying to heaven”
  • the scopophilic corridor ; me
  • the speculum ; you
