Barbarian

Barbarian ★★★½

I think I saw too much hype for this movie before watching it, because while it's a gnarly and dense experience, it's far from the wild wtf-ery that some reviews implied.

A lot of horror in the last few years has grappled with toxic masculinity and "believe women", to varying degrees of success (mostly not, to be honest). Barbarian is more thoughtful and less clumsy, but still loses track of what it's trying to say by the end.
