    The Voyeurs

    ★★½

    The first hour was trashy aggressively silly and self aware guilty pleasure fun, the last half hour felt like the screenwriter had a competition against themself to write as many braindead asinine plot twists with each following scene. It’s not good, but it’s definitely camp and I’m all here for more films that want to be De Palma or Hitchcock. Sydney Sweeney is very good at being concerned and horny and that might be it. And I swear Justice Smith…

    In rural 60s America, a bomb alarm rings in an elementary school and refuses to turn off. From that point on we follow the lives of a huge ensemble of teachers, students, and parents as they try to make sense over the potential drill or the potential nuclear holocaust; A lingering sentiment that clouded the fears of the Cold War. Has its limitations, but considering the cheap dramatization Ladybug Ladybug couldn’t have fallen into for sensationalist’s sake Frank Perry only does so to heighten his anti war mission statement. The final scene is an all timer for a film that desperately deserves a reclamation soon.

And there’s this bit of dried cracker stuck to the roof of your mouth and you’re doing everything in your power to lick it off and swallow but your tongue is so dry it’s actually being used as a vehicle to somehow make the cracker even more dry and more stuck to the top of your mouth. And that also lasts two hours.

    2019 Sundance Film Fest Film #4: 


    And to think just I was starting to get burnt out from this whole “Sundance while I work part time and go to school full time” thing, Monos comes out of nowhere to be something bigger than a simple “must see at Sundance” title. Monos feels like a fucking miracle, an achievement in capturing a true to life nightmare scenario through the lens of a fairy tale world. Monos seems like it could take place…
