    Feckless experimentation of the Lifetime thriller genre. Somehow not as fun as that sounds.

    ★★★½

    Overwritten in the best way, sadly Karlson's style doesn't get turned loose until its wonderfully tense finale. Maybe the earliest example of a homme fatale that I can think of, which was very unexpected, though loose some impact with a tacked on ending.

    Was kinda expecting not a slut-shaming moral piece here. Stop panning the camera in a circle and tell me what girl in middle school hurt you so much that this is the output. Ruins the great mood with childish characterizations and bizarre coupling.

    And like it is cool that people are starting to expand on Carpenter, but at the expense of his progressive visions, wit and brevity? No thanks.

    ★★★★½

    Luc Besson + Highlander welding tube + Miami Connection-style musical scenes + Batman + Taking of Pelham 1,2,3. Like if that doesn't scare you off this movie is just for you. Lots of fun - great companion to the more serious French films like Diva and Mauvais Sang but sharing that same visual vocabulary.

    At least google the Guns Don't Kill People/People Kill People song and wish that Vampire Weekend would cover it.
