  • The Clock

    The Clock


    Saw all 24 hours. The whole thing was just sublime, and I've only got some musings and observations:

    • These characters do so many things with clocks. They start the clocks. They stop the clocks. They enter the clocks. They climb the clocks. They pull the clocks out of corpses. They kill using the clocks. They kill the clocks. They embrace the clocks. I was geniunely curious if someone would pull an American Pie with a clock.

    Crimes of the Future


    Hands down the most David Cronenberg™ film that Cronenberg has birthed this century. It nicely ties together a few ideas that've stuck with me from Annihilation, Evolution (2015), and That Episode of Invader Zim. Fans of eXistenZ, Crash, or Dead Ringers will feel right at home in the unsettling, antiseptic world Cronenberg builds, but his preoccupations here most remind me of his adaptation of Cosmopolis. Here once again is a capitalist world locked in a cycle of self-destruction and transformation.…
