Perfect Blue

Wish this blu-ray had dropped earlier in our ASIB/Vox Lux watercooler discourse, so that none of us would have had an excuse not to shut the fuck up. And the rape scene is still one of the most jarring and uncanny of its kind known to cinema, in my book—a real rebuke to the childish, boarish impolitesse, or otherwise to the completely toothless correctives therein, of so much else being made then as now. Terrifying, destabilizing, with the most rigorous intentions.
