  • See You in Hell, My Darling

    See You in Hell, My Darling

    ★★★★★

    When the ground slips under your feet, the one to catch you or push you ever lower should be someone you love very much. Only then everything gets some meaning.

    SYIHMD is about 3 souls trapped in purgatory, at times struggling against or falling into the flow of the cycles they've been doomed to repeat. Its literally purgatory. Afterlife is just like their earth life, only no one can grow, learn, or change.

    At times, they can remember. They cling…

    Stalked by My Doctor: Patient's Revenge

    ★★★★

    People who might be skeptical bc they don't like melodrama... Look he is an evil Mr Bean stalking around mcmansions with a hypodermic needle held in his hand like a hatchet. He bodies 2 cops using this method.


    For the connoisseurs: everything you like about SBMD franchise is here in abundance. This installment is extremely improved by removing the usual boyfriend b plot element and leaning into the comedy.

    Video Violence says "what if everything you love about SOV, but as competently made as possible within its limitations?" what you get is a genuinely nasty and hypnotizing gem. Welcome to Dogpatch, New York.

    One aspect of SOV horror is the way it makes you "feel insane" watching it. For VV, I think its in the way time is so inconsistently marked. sets repeated, the same angles, and the same music scored over dialogue makes you feel lost in an…

    ★★★

    You're gonna hang here with the crows and watch the earth as it dies.

    A polish filmmaker is exiled from the only country he's ever known for refusing to name names for the government. He comes to Canada and makes his one and only feature film about divine retribution for first nations genocide and industrial exploitation.

    You really come for Grahame Greene's mind boggling performance as Arthur. Brimming with rage in a way that seems all the more insane for…

  • Cruising

    Cruising

    ★★★★½

    Cruising is not a procedural or an expose of the queer underworld. Cruising is about a repressed man losing it when he encounters the fundamental ambiguity of his sexuality. The technical flaws of the film are outweighed for me by the strength of its ideas.

    I love the pure acres of flesh on display, the desanitized hairy queerness and this lost era of public sex. I loved watching Al Pacino’s eyes flush with (apparently very real) discomfort with gay sex.…

    Something Wild

    ★★★

    *staring into the middle distance* I did not like Something Wild very much. Do I hate art? Scorn love? Am I dead inside?

    For all the ways it breaks convention, Something Wild is still a fairly straight up romantic comedy. And from the jump, I bristled. Its hard to for me to relate to female characters that feel drawn out of a man’s fantasy. A quirky woman finds that special interesting thing about a totally boring man and becomes the…
