    better than The Plague Dogs

    My Soul to Take

    ★★★★

    still absurd, trashy, and an absolute joy - the frissons of watching craven make a metaphysical argument for a sort of monism of identity in the slasher, as fundamentally an inner psychodrama of masculinity which resolves the contradictory impulses and personhoods of adolescence, through such unabashedly juvenile and "lesser" material are considerable. i wish this was a tv show so we could have gotten hours more of the autistic kid/evil stepsister high school antics before everyone has to start getting axed

    dante-esque carnival of abjection with a candy heart

  • Over the Edge

    Over the Edge

    ★★★½

    much better than river's edge, largely because here the tension more blossoms organically from a plausible cast of characters than it is imposed didactically from above. handsomely shot and edited, too, and the lowkey, easy ramble of its style gradually ratcheting into something more nightmarish and uncontrolled is more poetically successful than anything malick ever did.

  • Society

    Society

    ★★½

    pretty good climax but unfortunately the preceding 70+ minutes are incredibly tedious. seems like yuzna works best in a short format where he has no choice but 2 rush straight 2 the goopy shit nd bypass the softcore snorefest

  • Memoria

    Memoria

    ★★★★½

    joe is so godly he made me look at tilda swinton for nearly 2 and a half hours and it felt like a tight 90. so inviting in how it teaches you to be attuned to and inquisitive of the sound design as a viewer and yet obviously also preoccupied with the alienness of the sounds of the modern world, an inverted reflection of an ancient spiritual presence that refuses to be apprehended, to be known except as a living,…

    disregard my previous review where i was a 19-year old twerp. now i recognize the only true hallmark of quality cinema is looking at a man dancing with the lover who cut his arm off and blinded himself in atonement and going, "need"
