    Don't Breathe

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    - watched it in my friend's back yard on a projector. good times.
    - escalated too fast, so climatic part went on too long
    - could have used some more down beats & affection between main characters

  • Cronos

    Cronos

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    - really dug the look & struggle of the monster. Del Toro /gets/ gothic like no other contemporary
    - subplot of Ron Pearlman wanting a nosejob
    - the classless mortician
    - more body horror than his later stuff, with lots of prodding and sewing and skin piercing
    - can see the point where his budget/skill could not yet quite reach the scope of his imagination. Interesting first feature.

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster

    - interesting metaphor for shallow dating styles, scenes that leveraged this were strongest
    - missed random scenes thanks to DVD skipping
    - common structure of (strange) details -> action -> explanation for details made it intentionally obtuse
