    European Cinema Binge #14 (The Netherlands)

    I won’t lie, I forgot about this little film challenge I was doing (forgive me if I’m a little rusty) but I found myself with a mild brain injury, a sprained knee, and some time off this week, so here I am.

    Spoorloos is a lonely film, eccentric and off-beat, with satisfying production value. Saskia, a free-spirited young woman, is travelling with her partner, Rex, across France, when she inexplicably goes missing at a…

    A bunch of college-aged students head to Sweden for midsummer.Β It begins with a grieving woman struggling with the complex relationships in her life, and a suicide…wait…but this isn’t Ari Aster’s popular daylight folk horror…

    Imagine how subversive, challenging, and smart this movie could be if they didn’t have guns.

    I am convinced this is the most perfect movie I have seen. Dario Argento’s most celebrated giallo film, Deep Red is an impressive thriller and compelling mystery. It features unsettling scenes and an equally unsettling (yet funky) score from Goblin. There’s plenty of gore for traditional horror fans, but there’s a real story and some interesting themes.Β 

    Argento has a message about women and family.Β It shines through that a liberated woman can be both badass…
