Southland Tales

Southland Tales ★★★★

a movie that somehow for its entire 2h40m runtime feels like you’re watching the apocalyptic lightshow finale of Kiss Me Deadly in all its genuinely cosmic fatalism rendered as a vulgar bush era scifi phantasmagoria. like if philip k. dick had lived just a bit longer and been around to experience reality tv, the iraq war and the killers.
