Videodrome ★★★★

Disappears up it’s own asshole towards the end but one of those 80s flicks that hit the sweet spot between effects-story-aesthetic that newer fils will just never achieve because all of those above mentioned qualities don’t exist for genre films anymore. Even something like Hereditary falls short because digital film will always fall short of real film. If Videodrome was made now it would be a straight to streaming B-movie. It would look and feel like the $1 we’d spent to rent it and that would be all. It might be a mess thematically but it was made at just the right time for it all to feel coherent and real even if it’s nothing more than an elegantly made B movie.
