At this point, I think I’ll just need to accept that I just like “perverted” & “disturbing” films, mainly because, I think that most of the films that I’ve seen that are in that category, I find to have a certain type of feeling (whether it be humanism or beauty or something similar to those things) that I can’t really see or be replicated in anything else, though, this has been probably the closest that I’ve been to quitting a movie…
Why haven’t I watched this sooner, because I think that this film is really excellent! This is the second film that I’ve seen from the Japanese New Wave and the first film that I’ve seen from Hiroshi Teshigahara and it’s definitely one of a kind in terms of presentation & setting, and while the story is familiar, I don’t think that’s a bad thing at the slightest, if I were to make a comparison to another film, then it would be…
This is the first Bergman film that I’ve watched and it was certainly interesting but at the same time, I certainly think that my feelings towards the film are complicated because, the film can be categorized as a semi-autobiographical character study & horror film and it does the former better than the latter, not to say that the horror aspects aren’t effective or well-done because I think they are, to a certain extent that is, but rather, in my eyes, it…
This is Marion, with Style is Substance.
In this episode, I will talk about a special film, a film that is as powerful as it is controversial, a film that has struck chords with me, a film that challenges me, a film that I believe... is beautiful: ThanksKilling, or the 125 Days of Sodom.
As controversial as he was, Downey was a smart man, one who could faithfully adapt a revered classical text while simultaneously deconstruct it.
As politically solidified…
BASED VON TRIER DELIVERING WHAT THE AUDIENCES WANT AND WHAT THEY WANT IS SEEING CHILDREN GETTING MURDERED WHICH I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT IT SOUNDS PRETTY EPIC TO ME NOT GONG TO LIE
When I first watched The House That Jack Built (2018) (Dir. Lars Von Trier), I called it “a masturbatory, overly self-indulgent, and has the level of pretentiousness-ess equivalent to a person shouting at you with 100 megaphones and at 10 meters in front of you saying…
I saw David Lynch at a Tesco Extra™ in Slough today. I told him how “Surreal” it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a wanker or a twat about it and bother him and ask him for photos or anything like that.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “What? What Do You Mean? I Don’t Understand What You’re Getting At Here?” but he…

Wow. What an avant-garde indie film. I was utterly blown away by the kinomatography/camerawork, lighting, set design, framing, composition, visual motifs, colour palette, editing, and mise-en-scène. Incredible & enthralling performances. The film was up there with underrated & overlooked classics…
UH OH VONTRIERBROS WE GOT TOO COCKY
Look, I have to be honest here, I don’t like Antichrist (2009) (Dir. Lars Von Trier) that much, and if I’m giving all of my true thoughts here, Antichrist (2009) (Dir. Lars Von Trier) was the most disappointing thing since my son. I mean, how much more could you possibly fuck up the entire backstory to The Depression Trilogy?! And while my son drove through and blew up an orphanage with a pick-up…
New French Extremity
I found this film to be more psychologically disturbing rather than overt but it’s one of the more back to basics type of horror although that’s not a bad thing at the slightest and I did find it to be suspenseful and surprisingly more complex than I initially thought, and I think that the acting is good for the most part although there’s not a particular standout but that’s alright and I don’t mind that…
