    The Myth of the American Sleepover

    ★★★★½

    Now this is my kind of coming of age. There isn't any like it I've ever seen. A refreshment of nostalgia. An adolescent, pubescent slice of white suburban insecurity. It's difficult to put into words the insurmountable strangeness of the film. It's a straightforward script to be clear, but the effictiveness of its simplicity, the natural performances from each character, and malaise of daily life is captured beautifully.

    I refuse to believe I'm the only fucking guy who thinks Get Out is way too highly regarded, and that meanwhile Us is The Godfather of sophomore features. Lupita creating a new slasher villain right before our fucking eyes. That couldn't possibly be a hot take.

    I have a soft spot for coming of age films. Despite my love of horror and genre features, young adult coming of age films hit me right in the solar plexus, and Babyteeth slammed me to the floor. I put this film off for so long for no discernable reason and I'm kicking myself for that. I laughed, I cried, I was in awe of Shannon Murphy's assured direction. I'm astonished how accomplished this simple, yet gorgeous this film is. Drop everything you're doing and watch Babyteeth.

    Haneke's trademark unsentimental and rigorous direction keeps the horror front and center. Never one to cut corners, Haneke keeps the frame laser focused and deliberately wallows in human misery better than any director working today.
