shocking, disturbing and just plain depressing at times - but an amazing film. an incredible study of grief and hatred and one of the best horror films i’ve ever seen. the film looks gorgeous, the performances are phenomenal (gainsbourg in particular), and its fittingly creepy and atmospheric. hard to watch at times, but one of the most immersive and unique films i’ve seen in a while :)
The House That Jack Built’s biggest problem is it can’t decide what it wants to be. It’s extremely self-critical and satirical but it also tries to be disturbing and shocking, but I don’t think the two elements work well together, the tone can be pretty messy at points. Matt Dillon is, of course, amazing and the cinematography is great but Lars von Trier is *so* full of himself here and he knows that, but it still comes off as overly…
I’m not a fan of Snyder AT ALL- I don’t like BvS, I don’t like MoS, I don’t like Watchmen- Snyder just isn’t for me. However, I was still fairly excited to see his vision of Justice League. And, it didn’t disappoint. Is it perfect? No. Gal Gadot’s acting is mediocre, the CGI is fine at best and I have a few other minor issues too. But the pacing, character writing and development, beautiful visuals, performances and even Steppenwolf really make Zack Snyder’s Justice League worth it. Fuck Warner Brothers for dicking Snyder over, because this was an absolute masterpiece.
Great show so far! Was expecting it to be much weirder (although I’m sure that will come later on) but it’s a great show nonetheless. Some of the acting and dialogue was off at times, although I’m sure that was intentional. Fittingly creepy yet comforting atmosphere. The season finale was also pretty great. Obviously, Agent Cooper is a great character. Gonna leave it at that because what can i say that hasn’t already been said? Hyped for season 2 :)
