    Had I seen this film when I was 10, I can only imagine my response would have been putrid. I say this 20 years later, knowing full well who I was and who I’ve come to be. I was more or less, just as uncomfortable as these two young men in my curiosity of the same sex. 

    Luckily, I did view this film in my 30’s, and can objectively respect sex in film regardless of gender. Life is short and the same can be said of love. This love affair is primal, it’s childish, it’s impassioned, and it’s beautiful.

    Don’t kill the messenger, but this is a horror film. The pulsating score, the dramatic pans, close-ups, blood-curdling screams, and blood dripping from appendages.

    If there isn’t a best actor duel on stage between Dafoe and Pattinson, I’ll eat my fucking shoe. 
    A fucking joy ride, mates. I ate every second of this up. My boyfriend hated it, but so it is. 

    A tale of a crusty old prune and a young buck finding his legging as a wickie. What starts as cautionary folklore, transcends to extreme madness at sea. The cinematography dripping in piss and shit; the score booming at every waves’ crash. The best of lines referring to the defecation of rare meat. What isn’t to love? WHAT.
