  • Hud



    A bleak examination of the death of the myth of the American West, with beautiful black and white photography and stellar preferences from all of its cast. It goes to dark places that seem almost shocking for the time of its release, and it seems especially resonant in a time when greed, chauvinism and selfishness have invaded the highest powers of America and many other countries.

  • Veronica



    Though it deals with well worn possession tropes, Veronica feels fresh in the way it presents the point of view of it's titular character, and in the setting and situation of it's characters. Paco Plaza is an incredibly talented director and knows how to create tension and scares without excessive use of jump scares, making things too fantastical or losing focus on character. It may not deserve the "most terrifying film ever" hype, but it's a great film regardless.

    This is one of the most badass films I've watched in recent memory. Why did I have to watch this on demand? Why isn't this playing wide across the country instead of fucking Jem? Not only is it a very solid western, but it's an absolutely brutal and inventive cannibal film that puts Green Inferno to shame.

    I can't remember the last film I've seen that kept me so on edge. This film is brutal, surprising and one of my favorites I've seen this year. With Blue Ruin and now this, Saulnier manages to create completely believable characters that maintain their believability through totally insane situations. The script and direction are both incredibly tight and he's quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. A24 need an award for releasing this and all of the other films they have slated for this year wide release. Go see this in the theater while you can.
