My intuition isn't enough to base an argument on (yet), so I consulted my colleague Rich Smith, who taught English, about it this morning and he said, "Cuntstruck is a compound word using two whole words, so a hyphen isn’t necessary and even misleading.

This is not a tale of doomed passion set against a backdrop of restrictive homophobia; Anne’s sexual appetite is just another aspect of court life that Sarah and Abigail must navigate. Loosely based on Queen Anne’s liaisons with Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, and Abigail Hill, Sarah’s social-climbing cousin, in early 18th century England, The Favourite, like Marie Antoinette, works to create a mood around a specific moment in time rather than an accurate depiction of the era. if your dr perscribed it you should probably take it, i also have ativan for panic attacks but with the buspar i haven't been noticing any extreme side effects it isn't as strong as an ssri.

That was the thing about the dialogue [in The Favourite]–I don’t know how they spoke, so it doesn’t matter to me how they spoke…It’s how I imagined they would speak. And there are signs of the trend continuing, particularly on television: The Great has been renewed for a second season, and Sofia Coppola is currently developing an adaptation of Edith Wharton’s 1913 novel The Custom of the Country for Apple TV+.

Perhaps it is this overt recognition of the period piece as entertainment, something to be reshaped and remolded for modern sensibilities rather than as an exacting reenactment of the past, that really sets the new strain of period cinema apart. The world of cuntstruck is at once the world that was there (the drive-in that now is only a field) and the world that wasn’t (the one we walk around and around but can find no way into); it is winter (a man in the empty road in the snow) and summer (grasses frothing up against a boat); it is certainty (the rain thumping against the house) and uncertainty (the neighbor’s dog in the middle of the pond in the middle of the night). If the traditional period heroine is kindly, perhaps a little strong-willed but ultimately a good girl, then 2020’s Emma with her glassy eyes and just-this-side-of mean girl barbs inhabits a greyer zone.

Things at the edge are at the center of Kate Northrop’s cuntstruck: a man squatting on a roof with his arms around his knees, kids running over the roofs of row houses at night, ghost decorations tied into trees, the unfocused eyes of the Scrambler attendant at the fair, the circle of foam around a storm drain.
