    ★★★

    Not as effective as I was hoping but still jaw droppingly sexy.  Maybe because this thing is slower than my Grandma when she gets behind the wheel.

Solid debut from a unique ass mind who was more than likely stoned during the whole filmmaking process.

Intensity and disturbing. Shocking and grotesque. Violation and demonic. Neon and violent. Sexy and insane. Real and fake. Red and blue. Green and yellow. My afterthoughts are trailed with disgust. I never have witnessed such a shocking and divisive movie. A couple days and a rewatch is what needs to be…
