Saw ★★★½

2020: #79/1000

One of the best final minutes in cinema, and I truly believe that. I really couldn't get into the first third, but when things picked up, they put me on a speeding train to the ends of the Earth. Seeing Leigh Whannel absolutely body his roll as a scared loner stoner was magnificent and this was definitely a one of a kind horror. I don't think anything like this will ever be replicated, which is why I appreciate it rather greatly. I will get around to watching the rest of the series, but right now I want to be able to just appreciate it as a film, before I have to inevitably treat this as a franchise.
