    Theatrical Cut

    Unfiltered chaos. Apocalypse Now is one of those films for me. One of those massive films that seem to constantly elude me and when I finally sit down to watch it, it’s even more incredible than everyone has led me to believe. On a technical level this is superb, and every single shot is a work of art in itself — but also the story, the themes, the commentary — it’s just staggeringly brilliant. The way you’re taken into…

    For a film focused on heavy alcohol consumption, it’s hardly a surprise that the film itself is modelled around the stages of drinking. The screenplay is forged using a three act structure that mimics the evolving atmosphere of drinking alcohol with which so many are familiar. The first act is bare, almost lifeless, as the characters within the film are eager for some sort of change to rupture the mundanity of their day-to-day lives. The suggestion of alcohol to alter…

    I wish studios still made 2D animations like this. I may be a tad biased due to nostalgia surrounding this, but I really think this slaps hard, and is far, far better than recent animated films. Such a simple storyline executed with warmth and with a sense of discovery, both in terms of the world and of people. Hugely enjoyable, often hilarious and sublimely animated stuff.

    Finding yourself on a journey with no beginning and no end. Just one endless loop. You walk amongst man-made walls and rooms, but they’re are alien to you. Earth was once home, now a distant memory. 

    Endless winding walkways. The unbearable silence soon becomes a comfort. You find yourself in a bizarre scientific phenomenon. Inexplicable but alluring. Is it the power of resurrection, or of freezing time, or is it all a dream? The unknown might be millions of miles…

    “Tape everything.”

    Might be the single most terrifying experience I will ever sit through. This was one of the first films that made me realise films can actually be really fucking scary, and after numerous rewatches, the terror doesn’t subside. This just builds and builds, the chaos growing at a heart-stopping pace until those final 15 minutes, which are the most bone-chilling I’ve ever seen. Essential horror cinema, and easily the best found footage film out there.

    I love this band so much. These 7 guys and all the music they’ve made has literally made my life immeasurably better. And now they have a film!!!! This is essentially a mix between a behind the scenes doc and a concert film, shot with gorgeous 16mm unbroken takes around the stage. So simple but so damn good. It’s unbelievable, hugely enjoyable stuff. The music, the people, the laughs, the drinks, the stage dives. And on top of it all,…
