    European Cinema Binge #13 (Denmark)

    A bunch of college-aged students head to Sweden for midsummer.Β It begins with a grieving woman struggling with the complex relationships in her life, and a suicide…wait…but this isn’t Ari Aster’s popular daylight folk horror…

    Indeed, (indeedn’t?) it’s a different film, an earlier Danish teen drama/horror flick and very wobbly cabin in the woods thriller. There is a tense gas station encounter, a near miss with the town weirdo, a montage of splashing in the lake:…

    European Cinema Binge #12 (Germany)

    Daring and obscene, Antibodies is not for the faint of heart. A dark rollercoaster of a crime-thriller that makes The Silence of the Lambs look like a tea cup ride, Antibodies shows fearlessness in its portrayal of perversion, moral corruption and devotion to religion.

    The German thriller follows a policeman, Michael Martens, from a small, religious country town, haunted by the murder of a 12 year old girl. The suspect, a pedophilic creep known as…

    American Beauty

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    Stylish and packed with motifs, American Beauty is a memorable commentary on sexual repression and suburban monotony.Β 

    Unfortunately, this middle class nightmare fails to resonate with me. It’s too white-washed, too indulgent, and not as witty as it thinks it is.

    If you rated this highly, rewatched it recently, and still consider this tasteful cinema, I have a lot of questions for you.

    A survival-action gem, The Decline is both horrific and tense. Don’t underestimate this movie, it’s a terrifying thriller that will keep you guessing from start to finish.

    Imagine how subversive, challenging, and smart this movie could be if they didn’t have guns.

    European Cinema Binge #1 (Italy)

    I am convinced this is the most perfect movie I have seen. Dario Argento’s most celebrated giallo film, Deep Red is an impressive thriller and compelling mystery. It features unsettling scenes and an equally unsettling (yet funky) score from Goblin. There’s plenty of gore for traditional horror fans, but there’s a real story and some interesting themes.Β 

    Argento has a message about women and family.Β It shines through that a liberated woman can be both badass…
