    Lanthimos’ door-to-door-Marilyn-Manson shtick doesn’t improve given outside screenwriters.

    Already several reviews have played this as genre slumming for its director, a person to whom I have enough ties that I'm enjoined from officially reviewing his work. I will say these characterizations are ill-informed and this is a film as craftily and deeply written as it is shot and acted. The Blue Room scenes are insane and (I think) a bit of a subterranean Lynch nod.

    So relentlessly full of shit it's relatively hilarious. Interesting idea to cast Kristen Scott Thomas as Courtney Love though.

    Best Villeneuve film I've seen, which isn't saying much. At least two "crackerjack" suspense sequences, and a lot of tech jubilation with Deakins kicking out the jams with the digital technology. But it's the drug-cartel movie equivalent of a zombie movie in which none of the non-zombie characters has ever seen a zombie movie. "Whoa, the war on drugs is an inescapable labyrinth of betrayal, corruption, and unspeakable violence? WHO KNEW?"
