Currently Midsommar is my favorite film of 2019, so I absolutely love A24’s decision to release their limited edition Bear in a Cage collectible on Wednesday. If you haven’t seen the film, a bear plays an integral element in director Ari Aster’s masterpiece!
In Blue Velvet, Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper) said “I’ll send you a love letter! Straight from my heart, f***er! You know what a love letter is? It’s a bullet from a f***ing gun, f***er!
