"I'm reminded of Lanthimos' 'The Favorite', both by the general lines of the plot, and by the way that the movie is a bit too delighted by it's own cleverness to realize that it's not really all that clever. "

"Bresson's weird insistance on non-acting is in full non-force once again. I think the effectiveness of the style is in the fact that by being so understated it demands more attention, not less, to adequately understand what's going on."

"Interesting to see how Hitch developed over such a long career. The filmaking techniques on display here feel unrefined in comparison to his later work but the script is just as tight and tense as anything else I'm familiar with."

"Westerns were so innocent and sentimental before Leone."
|35 6%||The Eyes of My Mother (2016) - May 24, 2019
"Utterly empty, rote and joyless. About as bland and tasteless as a glass of water."

"Hard to tell, since I have absolutely zero exposure to Indian culture, how much this is one of those movies that panders to Western audiences. At any rate it did Love Actually better than Love Actually and it was miles ahead of the dumpster fire that is Crazy Rich Asians."

"Sets and SFX are the highlights."

"Nothing new. The scares are all things we've seen before over the past decade of horror - I can see inspiration in Insidious, Paranormal Activity, The Others, 1408, Inception and Flanagan's own Oculus - but it's well done, and Flanagan is really good at the whole multiple timeline editing thing (see Oculus). "
