Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust ★★★★★

Apocalypse NOW.

Unsettling ultra shock loaded with disturbing images, gratuitous violence, despicable acts, lush cinematography, and tons of commentary on the duality of man (amongst other things).

First time I watched this was in the mid 90’s via bootleg vhs and even after all the bootlegs, DVD’s, and blu rays it still hits just as hard or even harder now. I feel like this movie exists in its own world where time stands still and just grows more powerful in its ageless menagerie. I totally get why people hate or love this—Everything’s already been said about this so I’ll just end this by saying this is soundwaved with some of the most beautiful music I’ve ever heard, it’s usage is so utterly haunting that I can’t separate it from this movie.

Heart of Darkness.
