    Let The Hooptober Five In | Film #11

    Short review, might consider a rewatch in the future.

    I am so sorry for those who thought I would like this, but this might be my least favorite film from Takashi Miike.

    It's fucked up as usual, but it lacks of the thoughtful elements he has put on Audition or Ichi the Killer. Those things that makes you think about it, draw deep emotions or leave you in shock. I sadly couldn't…

    The Summer Of Directors Challenge: #70 Tobe Hooper

    This is a masterpiece.

    I wasn't even close to the half of it when I knew that this was one work of well done art.

    The direction is greatly done, it follows a perfect sequence and takes us to the points that matter, also providing lingering moments when focusing on details.

    The lead characters are fascinating in their own. Leatherface is the…
