"Of course hell is like a red sea with three witches, strange monsters and a man lost in the sea who don't come back the same. Eerie, beautifully planned through landscape, distant, still shots. I guess I admire more than I love it, but that's enough. Folk horror done right."

"Yet another Diaz's engrossing film about Marcos' dictatorship permanent damage on his country. This feels more universal, narrative and accessible than ever -- and somewhat repetitive and not as poignant as recent entries --, as a road movie with myths and secrets and hidden crimes slowly becoming a tale about opression and everyday social tragedies. There's no humanity, but humans acting like animals. "

"Dogs, sex and dearh metal. By a mile not only the most feverish, surreal, weirdest, unpredictable Ferrara's film of this european phase, but his entire career. Film as testament conveying a journey into the soul through landscapes (ice, desert, forest, family home), memory, guilt, pleasure, inner demons, ghosts, fear, desire and ultimately loneliness. Man back to basics -- cave, hunt, survival -- but bringing the nightmares of every generation with him. Ferrara's sobriety imagery is also a blast"

"Episodic format kind of makes it schematic -- that's why the second half feels much better than the first. Literature via oral history."

"Sometimes pretty standard and uneven, but undeniably attractive."
|65 62%||American Murder: The Family Next Door (2020) - Oct 21, 2020
"The found footage approach gives a crime story such an eerie, creepy vibe from start to finish."
|45 24%||In Fabric (2018) - Oct 20, 2020
"Some good ideas here and there, I suppose -- consumerism as generic, but timeless ghost --, and the first half looks promising. Too bad the second one feels lost in so many half-baked stuff that never takes off. Good finale, though."

"At the same time weird and hilarious as a slapstick comedy and heartbreaking and poignant as a real-life story about loss."
|65 62%||Hubie Halloween (2020) - Oct 16, 2020
"Kind of a Frank Capra heartwarming "loser" story mixed with Farrellys sensibility towards the neglected, bullied and mocked. Best Happy Madison flick in quite some time, with some nice tiny comic bits beyond the obvious stuff -- Buscemi's werewolf, Hubie's mom t-shirts."
