    As the Gods Will 2014

    ★½ Watched 18 Oct, 2016

    Despite its strong opening, the best part of the entire film, this is film quickly became a chore to sit through. Look, I get that Miike is beloved for his risk-taking as a storyteller, but this film lacks any cohesive form of a plot. It feels incomplete and, worst of all, lazy.

    Sometimes the horrors of the war are far scarier than even the meanest of ghosts.

    I kind of wish the film had just focused on Jack White. I found him to be the most interesting of the three.

    Killer Joe 2011

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Dec, 2012 4

    Trashy and surprising all at the same time. Feels more like a play at times than a film, but the performances are fantastic. Killer Joe is not a film that cannot easily be recommended to most people. However, those willing to take a risk are in for an experience they will not soon forget.
