    The House

    ★★★½

    It is a collection of Burton-Anderson-Junji Ito inspired stop-morion shorts. Stories eras apart yet weaved together through this house - seems bridging to nothing but the theme is cohesive nevertheless. The first one is ultra-suspense but lacks that defining punch, whilst the last one is toothless after becoming enigmatic. 

    The middle one though could’ve been a haunting stand-alone beaut with set-up and pacing felt Hitchcockian only to lead to a Cronenberg-ish ending.

    Bridesmaids

    ★★★½

    The SNL-esque comedy on films peaked on this one but don’t be thwarted by compliment as it still haemorrhages nonsensical conflicts.

    ★★★★

    Old tales yearn for honour amongst the brethren. 
    Let thee be the way, and thus thy long for more.
    As it is adapted in modern means, such involves thirst trap….and spunk. Ye can’t complain to thy wonder.

    PTA plays around complicated characters who roam around in denial and genuine ignorance. Such is evident in his latest coming-of-age story where the leads are chasing validation and romantic awakening in each other’s unlikely (problematic) company. Yet this budding tug-of-war sort of romance though shaggy felt offbeat, gentle and electric to facade a chaotic LA backdrop reeling from the issues of Oil embargo, Manson murders, Vietnam war, and misogynist culture. In an already abnormal society, the age conundrum served as its personal anomaly that weaved the two lives in a unique, weirdly irresistible manner.

    Unsurprisingly, only PTA can make us watch that.
