    The Flicker


    Never have I been more acutely aware of the fact that my physical perception of the world is solely a reaction to stimuli. Conrad truly gets down to the simple nature of how film is perceived, while presenting a truly inexplicable hallucinatory stroboscopic experience. Also an actual physical exercise on the eyes, ears, and body, as I swear even my heart rate was doubled by the end.

  • Stalker



    In case it wasn't evident enough from my avatar, it might be a good idea to let you all know that...

    ...Stalker is undoubtedly my favorite movie of all time.

    No movie is able to melt me into a state of compliance as well as it has, and from the very first viewing it has taken hold of my fragile consciousness, hopefully forever and always. I may have only seen the film four times, but I have probably spent days…

Honestly I doubt it, despite how amazing I found it to be, and how it became an instant favorite for me and an instant all-time classic in my mind, I don't…

  • Demonlover



    What starts as a pretty clear cut tale of corporate espionage between pornography distributors descends into a chilling and utterly captivating atmospheric exploration of the effect of technology on the mind/body/soul of post-internet society. The film consistently shows how violence and hardcore sexuality prevalent in media has warped people through desensitization and creation of perverted fantasies that are mistaken for reality, all done in a way that makes demonlover enchanting. This doubles when the film's major espionage plotline largely falls…
