    Flashback

    ★★★★

    One set of choices and I exist in all of them, simultaneously. I'm more free than you can ever imagine. I've seen the skylines of a thousand cities. I've looked into the eyes of a hundred grandkids. The ones that I love the most....they look like you.

    Wow. A cathartic experience in a less-than-perfect movie. I think the comparisons to Synchronic are impossible to avoid - the score, acting, editing are all way better than Synchronic but I can't say…

    ★★★★½

    Strangely poetic. The crew's involvement almost acts as the control group in this social experiment on violence and death. I was beginning to think they're the only ones with soul in the film but the killer is not an emotionless sociopath. You're immediately thrown into his world with a strangulation in the opening seconds followed by a montage of gunshots. The black and white cinematography works extremely well, especially with so many busy frames. There's a lot of camera movement…

    Happy Madison productions are usually terrible but somehow still always watchable.

    ★★★½

    Really solid sub thriller with a great story. I love the way each act tied on a new important detail to their missions. The characters are well written and the sound design was awesome in the beginning.

    Watching a movie from inside a submarine while being quarantined in your room just feels right. I'd honestly put this just below The Hunt For Red October as far as sub movies go, pretty decent flick.

    ★★★★

    This is a thinker. I feel like I need to sleep on this to really digest it, but I also don't think I could dive in and break it all down without another watch.

    Beautifully shot in a dream like world and a hypnotic choir carries out throughout most of the film. It's a fairy tale but never like I've seen before. The editing was actually pretty awful to begin, but it calms down and the stretched out scenes suck…

    ★★★★

    I've always heard about the over-bearing sound design this movie has, so I decided to really go in and watch with over-ear headphones. The constant droning and rumbling sounded like impending doom. I could hear the tiniest scratch repeat over and over again until it grew louder and more layers were added. The radiator screeching rattled my brain and the suckling noises made me want to claw my eyes out. I contemplated switching back to surround sound but this was…
