A super fun throwback to Harryhausen/Krull/Beastmaster-type-multi-adventure-set piece hero’s journey adventure films. While it sometimes feels a little too bogged down in its plot, its occasional excessiveness is part of its charm. Seriously, so fun!
Insanely original, incredible performances and just gorgeous. While purely a horror film, it’s one that could only be made by someone who’s studied (or understands on an instinctual level) sociocultural theory, read a lot of sci-fi literature and has an endless well of empathy and humor. A staggering sophomore effort when it comes to style, storytelling and taking chances. At SXSW
