POSSIBLE SPOILERS & TRIGGER WARNINGS
I had been hearing about the French film, Irreversible, for a long time. I had seen it mentioned various times on disturbing movie lists and videos, and only recently did I decide I was finally ready to watch it.
But I don’t think anyone can ever be ready for such a film as this.
I re-read one of my favorite books recently, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, and forgot how much I loved it. A book about women, oppression, racism, sexism, God, religion and probably most importantly, love- it’s one of those rare books that are an experience, teaching you and staying with you throughout your life.
