    this movie taps into the same throwback stylistic choices as more critically lauded neo-noires, but with the cheap sleaze of a blumhouse movie. as if it were designed to fill time slots on late night tv channels. theres a low-fi charm, and a feeling of joy behind the camera. its like every scene was composed by daydreaming to cool music. id watch a sequel, for sure.

    A stunning, bold, epic, immersive, detailed depiction of a story, setting and characters that i just didnt care about.

    it was interesting from an auteur lens to see robert eggers style applied to whats basically a standard hollywood epic. however, eggers success in broadening his style comes at the cost of depth and experimentation. unfortunately, it was too big of a trade off to work for me.

    need to stop letting these streaming series freaks trick me into watching what would be ok mid-budget movies stretched into hours and hours of poorly structured "content"

    should have just rewatched battle royale instead

    ill admit, it was a bold choice to adapt a windows screensaver into a feature film
