    Do it or don’t, Larrain, none of this half-assed bullshit! KStew does a hell of a job in a movie that’s way less interesting than it thinks it is, Skinny Spall is kinda scary, and can we have Sean Harris read a list of foods in every movie please thanks

    The Hand of God

    There’s a very tender scene that’s recontextualized into something completely heartbreaking and man, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to shake that feeling for a while.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Oh shit we got totally Last Temptation of Christed

  • Lisztomania


    I know some people have trouble with Ken Russell’s biographical films but from what I understand it’s part of the historical record that Franz Liszt actually was sucked entirely into Carolyne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein’s vaginal canal, so I’m not sure what the problem with this one is. 

    I thought the battle where he fights vampire Wagner with the flame-throwing piano was one of the most inspired things I’d ever seen but then he blasted Nazi Frankenstein Wagner with rainbow lasers from his pipe organ spaceship so I guess it can always get better.
