WOW! Just, WOW!
Having never seen this film before, but hearing it spoken of many times over the past 25 years, I had some very strange expectations of this grubby, grimy, horrible, pointlessly disgusting exploitation film.
What I got was a poignant display of the effects of abuse, a strange insight into the mind of a child, their abilities to see the world not as it is, but how they want to see it. Innocent and good.
There was a…
All the crazy, bloods packed carnage you'd expect of a Rodriguez outting, great casting too!
It's quite amazing he managed to weave such strong politics seemlesly into what is essentially a grindhouse movie.
Also love the incredibly strong women in this film, another great staple of his work.
I know A LOT of people wil sat 5/5 really?
We'll, the story wasn't super original, that was never what this was about.
This movie oozes style. The Cinematography, the choreography and don't even get me started on the soundtrack!
This movie takes the sensibility of an arthouse visual production, and applies them to a AAA title with the type of cast that people go to bed dreaming of!
What this movie, I won't even say LACKS in plot, is made up for with a visual and audio senstation that more than makes up for it.
So yes, this for me is a 5/5.
Wow, what a movie!
Reynolds acting is top notch, and the supporting cast do superbly.
The whole concept of exploiting people's insecurities is used to full effect here and while this could have come off as camp "b grade" throw away material, an odd sense of seriousness kept it both grounded and hilarious.
This is a very rare breed of movie that ties action, comedy, psychological horror and Scottish cats into the perfect storm.
This movie is absolutely brilliant!.
Really good look into the poly amorous lifestyle and how it effected this professor.
Ita also very interesting to see the foundations wonder woman was built on.
It would have been slightly better has they gone a little bit more into the psychological side of it but then it wouldn't be quite as approachable.
This was certainly a decent movie. It's a slow burn comedy that really works.
It's not like other comedy horror that go for the completely inane humor so synonymous with the genre,(not that I don't love that too, I do) it actually almost works as a black comedy until the final sequence.
Good performances and some great character acting.
I can recommend watching this as a good "wind down" comedy horror.
