    Dark City

    ★★★★★

    Dark city's staggering style remains unmatched in terms of visual distinction. Nothing that came before nor after it could truly be compared, even though touches of Metropolis and Gotham simmer through the murky shadows of this by sun abandoned city. From the start it fascinates, from the first second it's thrilling and nowhere throughout runs the pace nor plot out of steam. The story is layered, based upon what reality actually means to us humans and whether what would happen…

    ★★★★

    A trippy descent into occult mayhem that is unexpectedly different. It's a tad too long at 2 hours, but still does establish its bleak atmosphere by bringing stunning cinematography and an intense soundtrack while delivering a fairly unique take on the possession genre that takes repression, sexuality and salvation into directions I didn't see coming. That final act is just something else. Throughout we get a compelling arc for the sympathetic main character, ritualistic purifications, lots of sexual symbolism that…

    Through a fragmentaric image of trauma, death and repression we are being served with what must be the most sensory overload of sensual microcosm in the history of the Giallo. Not merely aiming at shock value, but reaching exactly that through tittilating suggestion and nerve-wrecking violence, this is a memorable exercise in experimental visual storytelling that guides us through three essential stages of an instable woman's life. With repressed memories, sexuality ready to explode and a vague sense of past…

    Driven by a deep sense of tragedy, this is one of the more serious Jess Franco movies I've seen so far. There is a dreamlike quality to the visuals and soundtrack and evokes an eerie mood that is quite memorable. It's sinister, yet beautiful, hypnotic almost. Which is sometimes unfortunately interrupted by a strange sort of silliness, which mainly comes from Franco's presence. He was more unintentionally laughable than anything else here and felt misplaced, which also goes for one…

    Looks cool.
    Cast cool.
    Vampires cool.
    But doesn't mean film is cool.

    ★★★★★

    Not since a certain trilogy about a certain ring we've witnessed a vision as grand as Denis Villeneuve's Dune. Another story that was said to be unfilmable due to its massive scope and enormous worldbuilding. Now, the most ambitious director working in Hollywood today, pushed bounderies, reached to the sky and beyond to create a grand, in surreality drenched adventure that is, in the first place, overwhelming. Every single image, every single setpiece, every single costume and every single tune…
