    What an experience on the big screen, you can see why people thought 3D was going to be the future of the medium. James Cameron put so much thought into what would work in 3D and how to maximize that impact that the film explodes across your consciousness like a neverending display of fireworks. Combine that conceptual and visual impact with typically concise, efficient Cameron storytelling and you've got peak blockbuster filmmaking.

    possibly the horniest of all vampire movies, no small feat in a genre erected atop a bedrock of horniness. A magnetic blend of arthouse and pure sleaze, strikingly composed shots and unapologetic nudity, like an uneasy dream you half recall the next day.

    if you find the first scene, of a group of friends just hanging out having dinner, as mesmerizing as I did then this is the film for you. There's a crime, but it's off camera and the focus remains on the father of the suspect throughout. People go about their disrupted lives in an ancient, decaying city pondering their alienation and searching for ways around it. Visually a gritty crime drama, but spiritually a penetrating character study.

    Loved it.

    a film that evokes the 70s so well I hated it for years because the vibe activated my ptsd

    a decade of therapy and I can now appreciate it as one of the high points of 90s cinema
