    The Siren

    ★★

    It's unpredictable, I'll give it that. But it's just not very entertaining.

  • Antlers

    Antlers

    ★★★

    Keri Russell and and the main boy were fantastic. The creature looked good and the gore was gnarly. Unfortunately the story didn't come together in any interesting ways. I would have liked to see the siblings' backstory intertwine with the main story.

    The Seafarers

    I found it difficult to sit through a 28-minute piece of propaganda on a subject I don't care about in the slightest. I only got through it by repeating to myself, "Kubrick made this... Kubrick made this..." As I watched, I did my best to spot anything "Kubrick" about it. It was well shot, kind of. The subjects were always in frame and there were a couple competent tracking shots. But the truth is there's just no reason to watch this other than to be able to say "I've seen every Kubrick film."

  • The Haunted Castle

    The Haunted Castle

    ★★★

    There's some confusion about this film. Georges Méliès made two films whose titles are often translated as The Haunted Castle. The first was in 1896 and can be seen here. The second was made in 1897 (which this Letterboxd entry is for) and can be seen here.
