    Aguirre, the Wrath of God


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    From the opening shot of the conquistadors marching across the mountain to Aguirre's final rambling speech on a raft surrounded by monkeys and corpses, Aguirre, the Wrath of God is a brilliant and endlessly compelling movie. Werner Herzog crafts a haunting and dark narrative about conquistadors on a doomed expedition for El Dorado as they descend into madness, complemented by Popol Vuh's magnificent score and Thomas Mauch's beautiful cinematography. This combination of breathtaking cinematography with the atmospheric soundtrack give the movie…

    Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris


    Gamera 3: Awakening of Iris is a triumph of kaiju filmmaking. While Kaneko's previous two Gamera films were great, the third and final film of his trilogy surpasses them even further.

If you're…

    (Late) HoopTober X #30

    From its first scene, The Cremator is eerie and disorienting with its unorthodox shots and editing, accompanied by Rudolf Hrušínský's monotone narration and eye contact with the viewer. This opening sequence sets the tone for the rest of the film, which is among the most uniquely discomforting I've seen. Director Juraj Herz breaks conventions to create shots that are both disorienting and striking. The film is strictly focused on the eponymous cremator, Karel Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hrušínský).…
