    ★★★★½

    I love it when an actor puts himself and his vision on screen and succeeds. Actor John Krasinski stars as the dad, co-writes and directs with great confidence, creating an apocalyptic world where sound can cost you your life. Because there's a plague of creatures that look like those bugs from Starship Troopers and Predator had a kid. Fierce creatures that hunt via sound.

    Almost a musical this one. A nice mix of comedy, brutal action, romance and a musical! It took a little while for me, I guess I'm not that into Wright's style or whatever but once Baby finds a charming waitress and fucking Jamie Foxx starts threatening and shooting motherfuckers I was in! I wanted Baby to win and get away so badly! Wright pulls off virtuoso action sequences and by the end I was rooting for Baby and his girl, for Wright, for this whole movie!

    Sinister, dark, brutal, I fucking loved it. Alex Essoe gives a brilliant, punishing, literally, performance. Pat Healy plays another sleaze with Burt Reynolds stache and everything. The girl that played Britanny Murphy on that horrible Lifetime movie is here too. The two directors here directed the shit out of their own Hollywood story. They have vision, style and balls. The score is great also. Reminded me a bit of Mulholland Dr. Thanks Matt for the factoid.

    The most ambitious film the Spierig brothers have done. And their best. They reteam with Ethan Hawke for this trippy, time travel adventure. Forget explaining anything about it. The joy is just to watch it unfold, expertly under the direction of the Spierig brothers. I wonder how they'll top this one. It's gonna be great. By the way, Sarah Snook gives one of the best performances I've seen this year in a brave, complicated and very moving acting job.
