    I did not think I'd like this. But like the annoying drunk who's name is on the marquee (and unlike real-life annoying drunks), ya grow to love 'em gosh darnit

    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★

    The fact that Hollywood saw the first one and thought "hmm, this should be a franchise" is literally insane. By which I mean I can't wait to see where they take the Soldadoverse next

    Eraserhead

    ★★★

    Ah... what can you say about Eraserhead that hasn't already been said? You will see things you cannot un-see. Not so much a horror movie or a drama, but rather a fever dream of indelible visuals and unsettling ambient noise swirling around a perpetually harried (and frizz-hairy) protagonist.

    Lynch crafts a microcosm both vaguely familiar and lived-in, and yet cold, uncaring, and utterly alien, populated by characters as bizarre and off-putting as the world they inhabit.

    Eraserhead doesn't try to make sense; it tries to make an impression. Love it, hate it, or grudgingly appreciate it (like I do) - you won't soon forget it.
