  • Titane

    Titane

    Cinema through the meat-grinder. Where Crash saw the arrival of avenues conflating the human and the mechanical, Titane rides them out to their logical brick wall, all in a hail of mighty thunder. It's all pure commitment to the desecration of the body, to ripping it from the clutches of theory and abstraction into the realm of sheer physicality. Here, gender and purpose cease to exist, it's all just meat and bones anyway -- crash it, break it, cut it,…

    Annette

    I really can't recall the last time I saw a film this actively antagonizing, where every itty bitty decision feels put together with a combination of an ironic smirk and a protruding middle finger, both pointed straight at the audience. Even all the way through to the marketing and the trailers, Annette is possibly the biggest rug pull of Carax's career -- and that is saying something. Apart from the opening scene, this really isn't the quirky Sparks musical I…

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Tom Hardy and Andy Serkis have struck the motherload! Past the explosions, the obnoxious CGI and the frankly disheartening MCU tie-in in the mid-credits sequence, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the gay-coded, quasi-horny, loser human-symbiote buddy comedy we, the people, truly deserve. Seriously, fuck the MCU and just give me 89 more movies of Eddie and Venom punching each other in the teeth.

    Hooptober 8.0 #14

    Instantly my favorite from Mr. Zombie. Takes the best parts of House of 1000 Corpses, shoves them into the trunk of a beat-up Cadillac and rolls on through the american wasteland, leaving behind a trail of blood, cum and booze for our appreciation. I can't help but admire how uncynically the film portrays the Rejects, these truly disgusting and amoral misfits who, in their own depraved little ways, nurture a tremendous amount of love for each other. Makes the incredible ending hit with that always appreciated extra amount of oomph.

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★½

    If ever there was a movie driven by sheer rage and trauma, it's this one. It's one of those rare pieces where every single frame feels exorcised/vomited out of the protagonist's subconscious being (and yes, I include that *ending* in within this canvas as well). It's stylish, rebellious, vain, crude, unexpected and deeply, deeply hurt at its core, and somewhat naïve. For better or worse, the film is in of itself an encapsulation of Cassandra, totally and unapologetically character driven…

    ★★★★½

    " You know what kind of plan that never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned."

    One can very much argue that new wave of cinema coming out of Korea during the late nineties was, and still is, one of the most diversified and eclectic arrangements of celluloid ideas in the cinematic landscape. Directors like Lee Chang-dong sought to explore conflicts of morality in characters broken by the world around them, while…
