"I guess it reminds me of Damon Packard's Dawn of an Evil Millenium more than anything. It's a bit dreary and obviously flawed, but this perfect blend of Hammer horror and TV aesthetics, with an eccentric horror/fantasy/paranormal story is absolutely the coolest buzz. Love the vibe."

"It was maybe ill informed to add these inflections of avant-garde/new wave aesthetic radicalism. It doesn't work anyhow, but otherwise what we have is a rather tight laced, courtly sort of movie, and it feels like a cheap appropriation."
|65 51%||Quai des Orfèvres (1947) - Jul 20, 2019
"A noir about travels in the gutter of society, and how the gutter isn't as class conscious as you'd expect. The gutter can be like a drug, or a web, that keeps people bound and returning who have the intention of 'cleaning up'. The text is more sophisticated than most, and does succeed in painting interpersonal relationships with considerable complexities."

"Great choice for a sick day. More of a political slant to this one, although Mekas himself maintains poetic authority and the 'privilege' of a documentarists role to justify disavowing a stated political stance, seemingly altogether. Which is just how I'll have it, if I can..."
|80 86%||Rebels of the Neon God (1992) - Jul 18, 2019
"The minimalist's existential take on Christiane F. And who needs heroin when you have existentialism, right? I mean wait.... I may be totally wrong there."
|70 62%||Dans la ville blanche (1983) - Jul 11, 2019
"Opaque and stylish. In a way that appeals to so many."
|60 40%||Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures (2001) - Jun 30, 2019
"Kubrick - only the most immediately accessible of the great film artists of the 20th century. More synthesis than innovation, and only someone ignorant of cinema history would gush over his achievements so fanboyishly. This does not undermine the great respect I have for Kubrick's craft, but I would take Tarkovsky, his Soviet equivalent in a few ways, over him any day."
