    The last time I saw this was either in the theater or on VHS in the 90s, and I had expected it to not hold up as well; but it's really solid.

    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?

    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.
