    I had been waiting to see this for half a decade,
    straight up, and it definitely did not disappoint.

  • Capone



    Clinical experimentation, which is what I should have expected from Trank — a filmmaker clearly not being given enough credit — at this point, but it caught me off guard nonetheless. The comparisons to Gotti (of which this is essentially an opposite), et cetera, simply had me prepared for an entirely different, and altogether much more by-the-books experience. I was not expecting a bizarro, fractured, absurd, genuinely terrifying, purposefully off-putting and deeply, deeply sad study of a haunted psyche.

  • Aviva



    Boaz Yakin's best film in over 25 years (since 1994's Fresh). Going from Boarding School to *this* is somehow even more wild than Matteo Garrone's transition from Dogman to Pinocchio -- and better, as well.

    This'd make a great (short form) double
    feature with Jonathan Glazer's The Fall.

    Utterly goddamn brilliant.

    Will Daniel Newell Kaufman
    be the heir to the Safdie legacy?

    Easily one of, if not the strongest of the SXSW shorts;
    I'm so, so, so glad that a light was shone on this story.

    Absolutely fucking fantastic;
    my father would've loved this.

  • Inception



    I don’t dislike Nolan, not at all, but I might consider this the great film so many others do if the characters closed their mouths every once in a while. Still, just like with The Prestige, Dunkirk and Memento, the editing is, in my eyes, excellent. I think I’ll give The Prestige, my favorite of his films, a re-watch soon — before Tenet, for which I’m honestly pretty stoked.

  • Ema



    All of the colors of the rainbow, coming together in pitch dark — a reflection of ink in the face of an aurora borealis. Heartbreaking, investigational, and invigorating. Not one to miss, or necessarily even “understand,” but one to feel on a deep, internal level; the coal black fire of the soul heating a disco of death and rebirth.
