    Just because it’s fake doesn’t mean it wont bleed.
      
    Rhythmic repetitions and stark juxtapositions send us staring into the dark abyss.

    This is Ron Mael’s knowing sneer made cinema.

    “Hey kids, lets put on a show. It just so happens to be a brutal insane tragedy.” Energy.  

    Every flaw feels intentional.

    This was my most anticipated movie of the year since seeing Sparks Brothers in January and I’m really wrestling with it and probably will be for some time. See it in a theater if you can. If you can’t, play it LOUD.

    It took several tries to get through this because I put it on for Tenley but inevitable she would get bored and yell “DO NOT WANT” and I’d have to change the channel.

    People saw this and got excited about the possibility of a “live action” Lion King? Huh.  The original is a great chill vibes film. This is lifeless, miserable and dull.

    Achingly beautiful and extremely heartfelt film about the erosion of traditional life but also that ACAB.

    Find yourself a bro to topple an Empire with.

    This is why we go to the movies.

    See it in the loudest theater possible or crank the volume up enough to get the cops called.

    Peak “hooting and hollering” Cinema.

    Truly a transcendent experience. More terrifying than The Evil Dead and insanely funny. The entire sound department in this movie crushes it so hard, they're truly the stars. The best kind of live action cartoon filmmaking. The domino doors scene is what the cinema is all about.
