    The Dead Don't Die

    "Like the bold-block letters of ‘OBEY’ which hide behind the commercial billboards of John Carpenter's They Live (1988), or the white, generic labels which populate the shelves of Alex Cox's Repo Man (1985), The Dead Don’t Die feels a throwback to the era of urgently anti-consumerist sci-fi which populated genre cinema in the 1980s. The difference between these gestures and the ‘KEEP AMERICA WHITE AGAIN’ slogan which sits atop of Steve Buscemi’s stark red cap are slight."

    Hiroshima Mon Amour

    A horror movie in which memory is the killer and humanity is the victim.

    Sexiest movie ever made. Nothing more sensual than metal on metal, broom broom goes the engine baby and I'm revving for more. Gestural and sensual and everything cinema can and should be.
