"Refreshing to see a prison film that tries to find the light. "The Mustang" doesn't bank on tension and violence to carry the story forward; all of the human drama is secondary to a deeper story about solitude and finding reflection in the natural world. It's so beautiful and Schoenaerts screen presence is dominating."

"Equating the lower-class to defective clones of the middle/upper feels inherently problematic. Not sure Jordan Peele knew what he was trying to say, having the revolution of the oppressed result in a bunch of zombie idiots holding hands - A conclusion that lacks sense and quite honestly just feels like a bit of a joke. It does get the blood flowing as a horror, and it's nice to see that Elisabeth Moss continues to find clones of herself."

"I love fetishizing over people with superpowers doing mundane things, or finding exploits in society - so I generally liked the first part(s) of this. It all becomes pretty silly rather quickly however."

"Something I need to revisit soon - but this film had such an impact on me when I was younger. Presenting naivety in a new, provoking light."

"Recalls the Trainspotting 2 line "you're an addict so be addicted, just be addicted to something else". Timothy, an alcoholic and drug addict, chose living with wild Grizzly bears... and somehow might've extended his life. "
|85 86%||The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) - Mar 04, 2019
"A timely film on the killing of purity. Where it is precisely Lisa's internal rebellion of the "perverted" ideology surrounding her that becomes the primary cause of the perversion itself. The final shot is soul-crushing. "
