    Shadow in the Cloud

    ★★★½

    I honestly cannot believe this got made. Shadow in the Cloud is so wild, deranged, and ridiculous that at one point, I had to consciously make the decision to turn off my brain and go along for the ride.

    ★★★★

    SXSW 2017 #9 - This film is FUCKED UP. Do you know the feeling of clenching your butt and holding your breath because you're so nervous? THAT'S THIS MOVIE FOR 45 MINUTES. The buildup is incredibly intense, and the film is basically an exercise in suspense and teasing everything until the last minute. But it's also a cathartic experience and has a wonderful payoff. Go into this blind, don't read anything about it. The trailer, poster, and synopsis are vague for a reason.
