    A Lizard in a Woman's Skin

    ★★★

    almost as if Fulci
    directed a tribute episode
    of Twin Peaks for the fun
    fuckery of it all.. adding his usual
    pastiche for the horror dramatic..
    tainting the confusion with
    hallucinogenic arthouse
    sourness.. forgotten by many
    perhaps, yet remembered by
    the certain... developed in a
    strange house in
    a fog of dreams..

    espec. in terms of hype.. still worth
    a watch if you're down for comment
    on a future dystopian hellscape via
    way of the prison industrial complex..
    that also we live in said police state...
    that corporations will control the
    means of the personal even more...
    that you are captive in the dungeon of
    the soul... of the mind.. of the heart...

    Just as mind-blowing and epic as when I saw it in theaters. Turned the volume on the tv way, way up and soaked it all in again. Really letting the sand brush my face and the fire singe my hair. Goddamn…

    Bone Tomahawk

    ★★★★★

    A genre mashup that is now so ingrained in my mind that I am sure the gritty nature of it will only start to burn faster over the next several days. I went blindly into this, aside from skimming some of the other reviews on here, and even though nothing was spoiled I knew I was excited and in for a wild ride. Indeed what an epic adventure into the old west where the air is harsh with malaise and…
