I FUCKING HATE FOLK MUSIC THIIIIIIS MUCH: 4.81 out of 5.0

There are exactly two emotions expressed in folk music:
EMOTION 1: Accumulated nausea from the subconscious knowledge that you are lacking every possible variation of human emotion and yet you are utterly puzzled as to what these things this THING you SENSE that you’re DEVOID OF even is ((( because it sort of feels like you actually feel something when you’re up there a-strumming and a-bleating ))). This sucking chasm inside you produces a vague, structure-less sort of longing ? for something ? and it pools like watery puss inside around that big straining hole in your face. This translates roughly to a drooly “beh”
EMOTION 2: A basic will to exist, bland despite being a promising animalistic instinct generally. As it leaks into EMOTION 1, folk music manifests as ♪ oo beh blah ♪

(Bob Dylan is ok

on paper)

 

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: 3.0 out of 5.0

CINEMATOGRAPHY: ◕.:・゚✧ out of 5.0

     
It’s really good.
Coen bros cinematography always really good.
The road trip stuff. All of it. The road. And the trip.
Heroin was there also.
That was really good.
