      I can't write a short review, I can only do this

      Inexplicably poke me with a sense of taste. I watched it late last night. I wanted to watch half of it tomorrow. I didn’t expect to see it, but I couldn’t put it down.

      After many people lay down at 5 o'clock, my mind can't calm down for a long time. There are many video clips flashing like a revolving lantern. I really like it.

      As soon as I woke up, I played it again and then re-watched the Lucian part played by Dai Hanhan

      I'm impressed by Dane DeHaan's acting skills. It's...

      How did I write so many 2333

      I bought a long time ago, but I haven't read it much. JACK's name always appears in the title. I seem to be too familiar with it.
      Not an active person, even killing Ru Ai is still a surging 233 caused by curiously poking Harry Potter's gimmick to perform same-sex love on a certain website.
      From that moment on, I fell in love with Dane and fell in love with pale blonde hair Yuppie, skinny, addicted to drinking, smoking, beautiful, childlike and violent,

      Don't be fooled by the title of the video.

      Influenced by the editing of European and American group portraits at station B, I always thought that the two leading actors were a pair of lovers, and in the end, one of them killed the other with passion, but it turned out to be the three writers of the Beat Generation, Ginsburg, Kailu Jacques and Burroughs are drawn into the story of a blond man who murders a lover. The lost generation after World War I, the beat generation after World War II, the hippies after Vietnam War,...

      Thank you for shining like a star in my ordinary life

      After watching this movie, I admit that at the very beginning, all I wanted to see were the faces of Gao Ji and Dai Hanhan, and a good-looking person like Dai Hanhan Gao Ji [
      but after watching it, there is an inexplicable feeling of a Japanese dog, as a vulgar People don't know about the Beat Generation, so I can only talk about the plot itself. But speaking of it, it is also the first time that I have written a film review seriously. I think that I am a little excited when

      To my darling

      This is probably the first movie I've ever felt deeply since I've seen so many movies. I have to say the soundtrack is really good. Makes one want to sink into the icy Hudson River with Lucien and David. Self redemption.

      First, the story unfolded from Allen's admission to Columbia University. During orientation, he accidentally encountered Lucien's "performance art". Since then, Allen was introduced by Lucien to Willian, Jack and David, who regarded Allen as his rivals. They started A...

When he was mouthed by a woman, the woman bet him that he could hold on for 30 seconds. At this time, he emerged from the shadows, stared at each other, timed, and for whom he raised his head and...

      A well-regarded historical character incident, the young cultural carnival of several Beat Generation icons is still interesting, but the emotional paragraphs are too bloody, but fortunately the actors performed...
