my favourites can change a lot
finally watched it...not much i can say that hasn’t been said 1000 times. the underlying feature that really ruined it for me was the main theme that was being thrown around through out the whole film, which was race and racism. when looking at the director of the film, it just feels racist, knowing that sam levinson puts all of his issues as a director into a black lead. A white man trying to explain/interpret racism leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I’ve been told by others that this film is only impressive because of its 60,000 dollar budget, but i think it’s way more than that. The performances are so underrated and the bad camera quality make the film so realistic. I was nervous for most of the film but i never really felt terrified until the final sequence. I do think they should’ve shown the witch but i can understand why they didn’t, budget wise. This film is exhausting to watch and probably won’t re-visit it any time soon.
Reminder that someone like Tarantino or Fincher could never make something like this
