    ★★★½

    Enjoyed this much more than I had expected, perhaps because I haven't seen many 90s action movies. The pacing and average shot length, at least for the first hour, was extremely to my taste. Also need to watch more Dennis Hopper, as his insane energy let me roll with a lot of the goofy shit here.

    ★★★★

    Crawford is so good in this that when the first act blatantly foreshadows (or, in the case of the summer house, head-fakes) all of the cliché shit that's going to happen in the remainder, I just got more excited to see her do it.

    Fairly underwhelming climax but I loved the build-up. Love those location shots of SF in the 50's, too.

    A decent piece of speculative fiction about the third year of the Trump administration

    ★★★★

    Ideal screening conditions for this, projected on 16mm in the back of the Oddball Films archive, at the conclusion of which the curator uttered, "I have no idea where he got a fucking grant to do that," and walked out, never to be heard from again.
