Hello and welcome to the thing. I’m Margarita, lifelong cinephile with an MA in Film and Philosophy and a complicated love affair with ideology. I believe people learn how to think more from the movies than from anywhere else. Sometimes I’m compelled to write about it.

You can find me on YouTube and Patreon.

  4. Hey, I came across your interpretation of the movies. I love your work. The Spirited Away, Psycho, Dead Poet Society, The Age of Innocence…..By the way, I would love to hear your thoughts on the Movies such as The Human Stain (2003), Les Misérables (2012), Don Quixote (2015), Frozen I and II, Midnight in Paris (2011) etc…. Moreover, I would like to talk to you about Jonathan Pageau a Canadian Orthodox Icon carver and Artist, He also did an interpretation of the Spirited Away which was also unfortunately removed on copyright issue but he also did a great job.
    Thank you for everything!


  5. Hey just FYI, your quote is goinv viral on TikTok, go take credit! 🙂


    Your purpose in life is not to love yourself but to love being yourself.

    If you goal is to love yourself, then your focus is directed inward toward yourself, and you end up constantly watching yourself from the outside, disconnected, trying to summon the “correct” feelings towards yourself or fashion yourself into something you can approve of.

    If your goal is to love being yourself, then your focus is directed outward towards life, on living and making decisions based on what brings you pleasure and fulfillment.

    Be the subject, not the object. It doesn’t matter what you think of yourself. You are experiencing life. Life is not experiencing you.
