    Pure art, pure cinema.

    2019 Movie Marathon

    Watching it again, I really am starting to view this as one of the most important films of the decade.

    It is absolutely mind blowing that this film was made with DVD residuals from Panos Cosmatos' late father's film Tombstone, and every single dollar is up on the screen here.

    Why is this a thing that exists?

    A wildly offensive film which attempts to pose questions about rape and consent that the world really does not need to be asking right now.

    I feel more like this is going to play a part in actually harming positive change when it comes to consent and the awareness of consent.
