    Doppelganger

    ★★★

    A freewheeling, bonkers, and intelligently realized meditation on the madness of the creative process.  Kurosawa’s cerebral mix of heady psycho-thriller, sci-fi and absurdist dark comedy still feels next, next level.

    Tango & Cash

    ★★

    I suggest you slip into something a little more butch.

    For a movie so homophobic, it’s so glaringly... homoerotic. Tango and Cash’s repressed desire for each other so conisistently increases in tension that it feels like an absolutely intentional throughline — arguably culminating in Cash devising an exit scheme that requires him to dress up in full, beautiful, glorious drag.

    Can someone please bring Stallone and Russell back together for a sequel where their love for each other is finally requited?!

  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★½

    Ferociously imaginative, out-there on a level just below surreality, and much more slow-burningly sinister than I was prepared for.

    This is surprisingly uncompromising stuff, reaching deep into the conventions of the horror genre and pulling out something ugly, odd and unquestionably original.
