One of the dumbest films I've ever seen. It just meanders from one set piece to the next. Well shot but narratively devoid of any substance.

Weird one this. It's a road movie, it's occult and it's gory. It's also pretty average but a lean 70 minute runtime helps.
and recommends you watch it too.
Sharp, smart and funny social commentary from the mind of Jordan Peel. The film is terrifying when it explores norms of black fetishisation.
and doesn't recommend you watch it.
Dull and directionless tale of Indian independence.
It's a decent effort but nothing close to Patriots Day. Had a rewatch because my dad made me:
I dig this, lots of references to old monster movies and some genuinely fun parts.
Almost bordering on a recommend, Day & Cube work well together. Couple of bits got me good from the supporting cast.
Genuine performances from Paulson & Duplass make this. Their chemistry in undeniable - they say more with their eyes and body language.
Far too long, wasn't invested in the story at all. Hyper violent and some great cinematography though.
I didn't think I'd seen this, then the slowest decapitation in the history of film happened.

A side of Lynch's work rarely seen. Compassionate, tender and soulful, Hurt's performance is remarkable.
Meh. It's a mish-mash of a lot of ideas and none are presented with any clarify. Feels like poverty-porn. Like a gypsy checklist.
Probably shouldn't have waited 32 years to watch this.....
Conceptually good but sadly doesn't really have any fresh ideas. Falls into the same tropes it's trying to distance itself from.
The special effects alone make this an amazing film. One of the stalwarts of the body-horror canon.
"CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES, THIS IS AWFUL"
Macon Blair channels his long-time collaborator Jeremy Saulnier & The Coen Brothers in this jet-black morality tale. Violent and funny stuff

Eeeesh, from amazing Watts to garbage Watts. She's stuck in a house with a young Bill Hader looking prick. It's cliched, boring drivel.
A labyrinthine, crazy film about that crazy thing called love and the crazy things we do because of it. Mesmerising.
Didn't really work for me, although conceptually I admire the idea, none of the shorts particularly grabbed my attention.
Really solid and affecting recantation of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Shitter Island. While the films visual flair is vital, the narrative is terminal.
Didn't care for this at all. Not into the sheer abundance of misogyny that permeates every frame.
This is painfully dull and littered with cliche. Not even Grillo and Bello can save this woeful attempt.
