    Men

    ★★★★

    Generational toxic masculinity, trauma, and abuse are key themes all mixed together in Alex Garland’s latest mind trip. Haunting and beautiful imagery, a fantastic performance from Jessie Buckley and some of the creepiest and seriously wtf moments I think I’ve ever seen on film.

    It's filmmakers like Gondry, who when they have total ownership over their material, make you see the pure magic that cinema can provide. Glorious!
