I know the whole thing with Javert being a rank of police that didn’t exist is Hugo just smoothing over the whole mess that is the French police force
but I can’t help imagining Javert giving himself promotions and making his own medals
nobody knows where he came from
nobody even employed him
he just showed up one day and started solving crimes
he’s like a station cat except he carries handcuffs
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
I came downstairs and thought my dog’s leg had fallen off or something (it’s part of an old dog toy).

If the class doesn’t end up making a tradition of leaving the lecture hall a huge ass mess for the people in the back row, then they are doing it wrong
