    Yeeeeeeeesssssss.

    Gaspar Noe's The Neon Demon. An ecstasy-laden trip into the seventh circle of Hell, Gaspar Noe's latest is... surprisingly tame, given the director's known repertoire. The world-renowned (or despised) shock artist has always thrived on making his work some of the most uncompromising films you'll ever see- either in awe at his audacity or disgusted at his lack of restraint. But Climax is probably Noe at his most restrained- although that's not to say it's for the faint…

    Sometimes I wonder,
    When I was gone
    For days,
    Weeks at a time,
    Slipping under your radar,
    Did you ever think about me?
    Were you worried?

    Gu wanders the streets of Shimonoseki, dragging behind him a rusty metal bat- his weapon of choice and a staple defense mechanism for the hardest of gangsters. He finds himself shifting from one pointless job to the next, trying to fill in the time between bashing brains in and making enemies of every two-bit punk in the city. The rain trickles down from the sky, night after night, in a cool kind of melancholy, washing away the sinful deeds…

    Whenever I think about getting back together with my ex, I watch this film. Works like a charm every time.

    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★★

    Rooney Mara eats a pie for five minutes straight, Casey Affleck walks around covered in a bed sheet almost the entire time, and basically this is one of the best films of the year.
