    Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    ★★★★

    A sadist's cinematic “Águas de Março.” Small, quiet moments underpinning sheer brutality, bitterest irony. It's a runnel of sweat, it's a patter of blood. It's a note, it's a photo, a space, a hum. It's a sack of body parts sat by a softly flowing river.

    Dream Scenario

    ★★

    Extraordinary that such a bizarre idea resulted in such an uninteresting movie, that a collective dreaming story devolved into an undercooked swipe at cancel culture (and product marketing, of all things). Comedy hardly lands either.

    Immediately prior to the World Pre-Premier (?) of Big Shark, Tommy stood outside the theater in a small, poorly-made plexiglass box, signing merch handed to him over the open top while wearing the same weird-ass gloves he wore in the film. Which says everything about Big Shark. Or maybe nothing. It’s difficult to know for sure.

    During the post-screening Q&A, he compared himself to Shakespeare and recommended drinking milk.

    We can say now with full confidence that Neill Blomkamp is a Richard Kelly.
