    "I was always worried something would go wrong, but the things that went wrong were never what I worried about."

    Life is precious.

    "Why would a priest be calling about a lamp?"

    That's a great question! Cause the lamp is possessed by Satan, or whatever evil spirit lives in the Amityville house. This is a campy work of TV movie hilarity where the Amityville evil goes into Maximum Overdrive, once the lamp (which bears a striking resemblance to the album cover of In The Aeroplane Over The Sea) is shipped to a family in California. You're not safe from any household appliance, especially if you are the pet parrot.

    The main sin this oddly entertaining film commits is promising a sequel that never came- Amityville: Pepper The Cat

    Here’s a movie where Brad Pitt speaks in patois for at least five minutes.

    For such a gorgeous looking movie (Hey Emmanuel Lubezki!) this is so fucking long and begging for parody. But the ending is very nice. Thomas Newman also does a lot of heavy lifting here. And wow is this the moment in the culture when people discovered the ukulele “Over The Rainbow” cover? I think so. Whole lot going on here.

    Also it’s hilarious in 2019 to watch a movie where you assume that somebody has led a good and full life just because they are insanely rich.

    Killer style.

    My first from this director, and it was the absolute perfect palette cleanser after A HIDDEN LIFE. Funny, violent, dark and absurd. The shot of him sharpening the fan blade on the pavement while driving down the road is one of the funniest things I have seen all year.
