  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★★

    A hazy rainbow-doused story that steadily wraps you into its mystifying web.  Annihilation heavily relies on dream logic as it moves into deeper terrain and winds together elements of philosophy and psychology, while also inducing both fear and wonder. It has so much to say about, well, everything, and it compacts so tightly into what feels like a hundred chapters, only slowly allowing it all to unravel and spill out into its rich, meticulous narrative.  It is a constantly mutating puzzle.

    I already know that this one is gonna haunt me for awhile.

    The title of this is very misleading

    ★★★★★

    What a spellbinding, disorienting, and disturbing experience. I don’t think I’ve ever mouthed “what the fuck” so many times.


    Throughout, there’s no way to be ready for what comes at you. The shot composition is unbelievably unique and powerful, and its editing is brazenly wild and bewildering.  Even the tiniest and simplest details are perplexing and captivating.  My mind is broken from how immersive this is; it completely sucks you into its world and holds on even after leaving.

    ★★★★½

    Such a rad flick.

    It’s hard to know what to expect with this series, but this is top tier. A witty, fun-loving teen film a la “Adventures in Babysitting” set within a modern horror blockbuster.  It had myself and the rest of the theater laughing throughout.

    High praise to Gary Dauberman, the writer and director. The whole thing moves phenomenally, and even with a lot going on it manages to stay coherent.  Plus set-ups and pay-offs are on point

    On…
