  • Barking Dogs Never Bite

    Barking Dogs Never Bite

    ★★★½

    Definitely feels like a debut and ultimately kinda goes nowhere, but in a lot of ways this may be the film that has the most in common with Parasite than any of Bong's other films. There are basements, tense scenes of people hiding, class struggles and Bong's trademark dark humour.
    Not for dog lovers.

  • Daniel Isn't Real

    Daniel Isn't Real

    ★★★

    I love the imagination and the Cronenberg style effects, but there was a point in this movie where any semblance of established lore is bent until it breaks.
    Ultimately feels like a hipster horror that buckles under the weight of too many homages and trying to do too much.

    Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers

    ★★

    A fascinating subject by a terrible filmmaker. Psychotropic visuals and Mickey Rourke's narration only shrouds Lazar's story in a cloud of paranoic nonsense.

    WHAT DID JACK DO?

    ★★★★½

    Lynch has gotten a lot funnier with age. This is the kind of elemental filmmaking that makes every other great filmmaker think, Shit, why didn't I think of that. Transcendental meditation. That's why.
