    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    "Surprise.."

    Gotta love how this guy, like an optics genius, develops a suit that can make himself totally invisible, and he chooses to use it to terrorize his ex-wife. I know he is an abusive piece of shit, but consider the reality here.

    This is a suit that would make the Department of Defense cream its fucking pants. Imagine telling the Pentagon that, oh, hey, I have a suit that can render an individual totally invisible. Or the Department of…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    “Does he feel like home to you?..”
