    "Any resemblance of real events, to persons living or dead, is not accidental. It is DELIBERATE."

    Knocked out by the power and fury of this film, the most incendiary procedural I could have imagined. This film is my fucking jam, as they say.

    Investigating the aftermath of a political assassination, its cover-up, and the wide-reaching tragic consequences, this film has so much to say about ideology, hegemony, power and the state. The parallels to the 1963 assassination of Grigoris Lambrakis…

    The J Carpenter rough blueprint. If you added in some eye popping horror special effects it would have everything he became known for.

    feel like watching this at midday, like I did, is maybe a different vibe than seeing it past midnight which is clearly when it should be shown.

    High-Camp rock opera that's overflowing with pomp, both silly and sublime.

    too stupid to write a proper review of this, some scattered thoughts:

    The sand seems so ominously terrifying, it's like a manifestation of time (of course) but also futility of life coming to bury you.

    Much of the blurb and chat around this film really hypes up the 'erotic' element, which I... just did not get? Not a particularly erotic film to me.

    I thought consciously "this is like Misery but with existentialism" and "man, this would absolutely suck" a few times.

    loved the euro-framed vision of america, reminded me of a John Ford western, it made it alien and familiar simultaneously, the colours were pretty special, everyone seemed suitably lonely.
