A creepy, unforgiving exploration of the trauma of religion.

After a few years away, continuing my journey through Fellini's works. La Strada is a tidy, funny, sad little story. Just enough circuses to feel like Fellini, but seemingly more self-contained than his other films.

A masterpiece of the genre. It knows itself well.

Amazing. Badly marketed and beautifully written.

Actually evil, if such a thing exists, and that's not an endorsement. Loves hurting women.

Could have been so good; really bad dialogue writing and repetitive editing.
★★★★½ Watched 18 Nov, 2018
Stunning. One of the few truly terrifying modern horrors.
★★★★ Rewatched 25 Oct, 2018
On a second watch, probably the best natural disaster movie I've seen. Really great character acting, and a story with real stakes.

I just got shivers remembering watching this last night. Not an entirely new concept, but goddamn, what an application.

Didn't realize it was del Toro until the closing credits, and it made perfect sense. Some stilted dialogue, but altogether lovely.

Wow. Another long-overdue viewing, and it's not at all what I thought it would be. I wish they'd chilled on her makeup during the last half, but what a performance.

Half-watched in a bar with the sound down low amidst excellent conversation.
