"Clearly written by someone who has a sense of what should work (in theory) as far as characterization. This is a “high concept” and so much time is spent trying to make me care about the characters. If I wanted a character study, I’d watch Better Call Saul or Mad Men. This is a post-apocalyptic story about mushroom zombies. I didn’t love House of the Dragon, but at least it knew what it was and why I was watching it."
80 59% The Headless Woman (2008) - Mar 03, 2023
"Its strengths are so extreme that I’m willing to overlook how trivial and monotonous much of it is. From the spell-bindingly vivid first 8 minutes, into the disturbing haze of ambiguity that the protagonist awakens into - there’s a lot here to admire. The ending returns to that psychological space but it’s impossible not to be disappointed. There’s a masterpiece here that, for whatever reason, couldn’t fully form."

"Saved only by a compelling performance from Majors."

"The final half hour really elevates this."

"Not awful - charming in some ways. Severely lacking in the characterization and tone required to make this story work. Feels like a misinterpretation of what made the first two so effective. Rather than doubling down on the comedy and set pieces, focuses on a banal love story (the first entry’s biggest weakness) and a surface-level commentary on the creative process. Still, breezy enough to pass the time."
