I squealed like a little girl on Christmas morning.

voteforpedro11 asked: congrats kristen! here's a question: I like reading articles and reviews and I keep finding the word "aesthetic" in tons of them. what does that word mean/stand for?
aesthetic means having to do with beauty, or things that are artistic (art = beauty in this sense). so if something is “aesthetically pleasing” it’s beautiful to the senses. sometimes in film criticism the word “aesthetic” is used interchangeably with “style.”
ex. “tim burton works within a morbid aesthetic”
ex. “nolan’s films are aesthetically rigorous but politically shaky”
hope this helps.
