    Apocalypse After


    I immediately fell in love with Bertrand Mandico's Les garçons sauvages, but everything I've tried to watch since has been incredibly dull and tiring. Was it a one-off, or was I wowed by an intricate production design that has long worn out its welcome?

    The Lords of Salem


    Difficult to put into words the visceral impact and sadness of The Lords of Salem. One viewing doesn't quite seem enough to put all the pieces together, as Zombie puts together a horror film so unlike any horror I've ever seen. The brutality of Sheri Moon's performance hits me in the fucking gut, and without ever having dealt with addiction, the film feels like a pained, strung out journey into the abyss. Some great female power, and a bone-chilling soundscape are icing on the cake.
