    a difficult but rewarding text. I especially liked the essay on feminism and film theory (basically a replay of the socialist realism/avant garde debates in the USSR, but with a reversed chronology!) the 3 star rating is maybe a little harsh (I don’t remember why I was feeling so down when I did the rating lol) but is mostly bc 1) I thought her handling of trans issues where they came up was p clumsy and 2) I’m just fundamentally not convinced by her underlying Freudian framework, tho I respect a difficult but rewarding text.
