    Wow Olivia Rodrigo was absolutely right, it IS brutal put here.

    In the current horror Renaissance we are experiencing, I still mark The Babadook as the gold standard. It's beyond perfect, and I've been both excited and terrified to watch Kent's follow up. It's impressive, a big leap for her that didn't always work for me, but showcases Kent's talent in new ways.

    She's obviously a genius at getting great performances. And her aptitude for horror shines through in the…

    Thematically, the movie combines the chaos and nihilism of Ran with the brutality/beauty of The Revenant. I mean this movie is brutal, and no one gets out unscathed. But it's also astonishingly beautiful. I was also reminded of Tarr, Dreyer, Parajanov, and Tarkovsky at times. If that doesn't get you hype about this movie nothing will.
