    mother!

    ★★★★★

    I saw this film a week ago and it has taken me that long to fully process my thoughts and feelings. Ultimately, without spoiling anything, the most concise review I can give is that it is an incredible, shocking, daring film about too many things to count. It packs emotional punches unprecedented in our recent move toward safe cinema. By far the best film I've seen in a very long time, and wonderfully feminist.

    I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

    ★★★½

    Beautifully shot, female led, and well written. While I feel this film would have been better served with less emphasis on exposition, the long monologues that run throughout highlight the inherent sadness within a classic ghost story.

    The Neon Demon

    ★★★★★

    Swinging from bizarre to unsettling to truly frightening, The Neon Demon tackles all of the ugliest parts of the female psyche and form, while subsequently mocking the beauty it's characters glorify. Prepare to laugh, shudder, and be nearly ill- this masterpiece makes it abundantly clear that Nicholas Windinf Refn cares not for his audience's delicate sensibilities.
