    The Devil's Backbone

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Technically super nice and beautiful but I feel like it couldn't quite decide whether it wanted to be a meditation on trauma and its pervasive and lasting effects, or a spooky ghost story about a dead kid that goes "eeeaasseeratatatataooooaoeooaooooohhhh". Either one can be great, but I just don't think it was completely cohesive in that way. The beginning and end are super strong, and I like that they all end up as friends (even if it takes tragedy), but a lot of the middle was just eeaaaaahhhh....

    Saw with live score by Jozef Van Wissem, pretty great experience! The restoration was absolutely beautiful and there was an old lady sitting next to me cackling maniacally for most of the film

    HALLOWEEN HORROR 2019 #10

    nobody told me this was a documentary-esque musical horror film about why you should respect other cultures. I love this, it's so wholly unique and kind of brilliant in its own super weird way!
