    Funky Forest: The First Contact

    ★★★★½

    One of the strangest yet weirdly satisfying films I've ever come across, Funky Forest also seems like the one that gets aliens right, somehow. They're going to be incomprehensible, bizarre, probably kind of gross, and our reactions to them are going to be likewise. Bonus points for a lot of catchy tunes and a sort of inside-out interrogation of Notice Me Sendai.

  • The Devils

    The Devils

    ★★★★★

    A perennial favorite Ken Russell spectacle, outlandish, artificial and sensational, depicting an equally bugnuts event from actual history. Oliver Reed at his 1970s peak, and an unforgettable performance
    by Vanessa Redgrave, picking bits of scenery out of her teeth at the end of every scene. Decadent AF, but with a sad and serious point about love, religion, and politics don't belong together. An underrated gem.

    ★★★★½

    Not since Ishii's Funky Forest has a Japanese movie made me laugh and get squicked out the way Hausu did. It's so batshit it's its own genre, with the only other film that might accompany it in said genre being Evil Dead. But Evil Dead is sedate and logical next to this. AWESOME.

    I expect this not to stand up super will on subsequent viewings but it was fun and now I'm going to re-watch the other two films XD
