    The Wailing

    ★★★★

    I started into this with ambitions of Memories of a Murder, but as soon as red eyes popped on the screen, I knew The Wailing wasn’t quite the realistic South Korean revenge thriller I envisaged. Instead, I got something closer to the always-underrated Angel Heart mixed with Dawn of the Dead and Oni Baba—a super natural ghost hunt/exorcism with a hell of a lot of symbology to boot. It’s also remarkably funny at points (at least in the first half)…

    The cityscapes alone make this movie amazing, but its prescient themes and outsized influence make Akira not only one if the greatest anime’s of all time, but one of the greatest films period. Revisiting it is always a pleasure!
