  • Exte: Hair Extensions

    Exte: Hair Extensions 2007

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Oct, 2015 1

    As far as movies where some creeper harvests and sells off the endlessly growing hair of a dead or comatose person with nefarious intent go, it's not as crazy as Peanut Butter Solution. But this is definitely a solid entry in the hair-run-amok genre. Inventive kills, harsh family dynamics, massive amounts of hair, and it exists, which is all a movie like this needs to do for me to appreciate it somewhat.

    Face/Off 1997

    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.
