Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me 1992
yeah i mean it’s basically the best movie out there
The Doom Generation 1995
love gregg araki, so obviously this was still good but it just was missing something. Stylistically, this was his most potent. The lights, the shot composition (especially the close-ups) and the music were all super loud and bombastic. Very in your face and violent almost, and it just never let up.

A huge plus in this movie’s favour is the way it combines the almost “ultra-realism” of the Nolan trilogy, more specifically The Dark Knight while bringing a more lively, Burton-esque,…
