    The Scary of Sixty-First

    ★★★★

    You know what... I actually really enjoyed this. Lighter hearted and campier than I'd expected, and knowingly playing along with the audience the whole time.
    It's pretty consistently funny and works well as a horror-comedy, sitting atop a much deeper and richer well of Epsteinian conspiracy - though it doesn't manage to actually delve into any of that in a meaningful way, but I think that's alright. The trappings of Giallo work so well for this particular fantasy of Dasha's, and for the scale of a first film.

    As I left the theatre all the escalators in the building were stopped - that feeling of stepping onto one and your body attempting to overcompensate for the expected forwards movement backwards and nothing feeling quite right is an interesting reflection of the experience of watching Tenet.

    The thesis is that you are going to finish watching this film feeling the need to watch it again. I imagine this comes around again after the second viewing too. I guess I'll…
