    I miss this genre.

  • Irma Vep

    Irma Vep

    The blocking in this film is astounding. The coordination and timing for this amount of movement and momentum is so complicated, and yet it appears as natural as a documentary. The level of craft and confidence behind this approach is just one of the reasons why it's so effective. The fictional on-set interviewer asking Maggie questions about cinema and then talking over her answers is another reason. 


    Somehow this detail is even more accurate today.

    As always, I sit in total awe of Olivier Assayas.

    The Empty Man

    ★★★★½

    THE EMPTY MAN is the most philosophically ambitious studio horror film I’ve ever seen? Painting broadly with strokes of Kobayashi, Cronenberg, Anderson, Derrickson & Peele it remains profoundly original with every unexpected turn it takes. Bravo to David Prior and Boom! Studios.

    ★★★★★

    There was a moment while watching Midsommar where i wondered if this was what it was like for audiences that got to experience a new piece by Mozart first hand.

    Ari Aster is a virtuoso — a filmmaker in complete control of theme, technique, narrative and performance. His attention to detail results in a fully realized world that he deftly fucks with from scene to scene, shot to shot. 

    He brings a sense of wonder back to the horror genre.
