    << film #27 of 31 days of halloween >>

    still so perfect in so many ways! i want to take a moment to talk about a topic near to my heart as it pertains to this film: style versus substance. this is a film that has a very solid and interesting plot in my opinion. however, it isn’t asking some deep metaphysical questions or exploring the existential nature of human existence. it’s simply a supernatural thriller with a tinge of giallo from…

    i haven’t ever seen anything like this before tbh. something so subtle that works its way under your skin and truly overtakes you. it’s so menacing and voyeuristically crafted as it causes you to question everything that you hear and see. some beautiful cinematography and nightmarish affects. like the “something isn’t right here but what” feeling that you get when watching Twin Peaks. that’s about the only comparison i have to this movie. but whereas TP’s utilizes exaggerated drama to…

    you’d think NYT would have enough of a budget to not simply go to brittany’s home town and take shitty panning drone shots one after another. other than that, it’s a fine short doc, and of course our society is perverse and broken.

    i have a special place in my heart for the original Wrong Turn movie. it was the first horror movie i was able to watch by myself as a kid without getting scared. it isn’t good but it’s something. this tries so hard to be something it shouldn’t be—we don’t need a Wrong Turn movie to attempt at being anything other than a shitty b genre flick you watch to blow off steam at night. also the main leader of…

    “there's no need for a plan. you can't go wrong with no plans. we don't need to make a plan for anything. it doesn't matter what will happen next.”

    whew. i’ve been trying to process this film for a minute. it’s like the ultimate “where is this going?” movie. and once you think “that’s where we’re going” it changes, the destination gets updated, and you realize you’re headed somewhere else entirely. the less you know going into this film, the…

    this was a two hour long anxiety attack. the safdie bros are def finding their voice as filmmakers more and more with each feature they create. this is the best i’ve seen sandler since Punch Drunk Love. he def needs an academy nod. as a huge NBA fan (and sixers fan) i loved the way they factored basketball into the plot. so dope to see KG and the Weeknd in an indie art film. i love the score and cinematography here too. it is gritty and full of synths. absolutely great way to top off the year in film! need to re-watch it immediately!
