i have no clue what the fuck happened in this, but it's king hu, so i'm pretty sure it's near-perfection regardless of the meager details of the plot.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
an unequivocal masterpiece, this is what you go to the movies for: bursting at the seams with ideas, poetic restraint, dynamic visual acuity, unique images you've only seen in dreams brought to the big screen. i've been obsessed with UFOs my entire life, and jordan peele is the first director i feel that has represented the paranormal on a big hollywood scale exactly as the esoteric and subjective phenomenon that it actually is. my absolute favorite new release of the 2020s so far: an ultraterrestrial western.
venom LITERALLY said gay rights!!!
they gave every single worst line in the script to michelle williams and she carried that shit like a champ. robert richardson photographed the crap out of this as well when he definitely didn't need to. absolutely dumb as hell, i loved every second of it. reminds you that capeshit doesn't have to be totally irredeemable self-important garbage; there's hope for cinema yet! give me a hundred more screwball comedies with big stupid queer slime creatures!!!
