    I will never get tired of proselytizing for this movie. Possibly the most emotionally potent and wistfully beautiful film to come out of France's Poetic Realist period, it's unique in that the story around the film's production and its subsequent cultural legacy are so genuinely romanesque that they almost overshadow the relatively contained realism of the film's own narrative.

    Jean Vigo was a guy with no pronounced fondness for childhood, largely due to the fact that he was dealt some…

    “There are some states of being for which there is no name, because the people who experience them do not come back”

It’s a wonderful documentary on an important field of study within medicine, psychotherapy, and ecology. On the level of aesthetics, it’s gorgeous. The time lapse cinematography is STUNNING and really does a great job of providing that consciousness-broadening effect of stepping out of…

    All of these 4 and 5-star ratings have me seriously gaslit, lol. Did I watch a crappy bootleg by mistake?

    Im sure this film’s curious production history as a one-man horror show passion project would make it an interesting addition to some kind of college syllabus on exploitation film, but I couldn't really find anything in the film itself worth writing home about. If you disregard the notorious shock value, there’s not a lot of substance, narrative or stylistic, to…
