Quick-Thoughts: Samira Makhmalbaf’s The Apple (1998)

These girls were robbed 12 years of their childhood, and all it takes is one glimpse at an average day outside to prove it. 

Okay, so two things I learned while watching this: first, the social worker in this is GOATED and does the whole “traps to teach ya a lesson” shtick way more efficiently than Jigsaw ever could. Second, I ought to become more productive in my life after having my ego absolutely deflated from finding out that a 17-year old directed this. I’m really out of the loop these days. F**k it, we all are.

Verdict: B+

“The Apple” is not available to stream at the moment.
