Punch-Drunk Love

Punch-Drunk Love ★★★★★

The scariest movie ever made. Not just PTA's third wildly different and yet unflinchingly accurate depiction of life in the lifeless, surreal San Fernando Valley, but one of the best cinematic depictions of living with loneliness and anxiety that I think I've ever seen - from the oppressing voices cornering Barry in every room and moment to the impulsive decisions that unravel this narrative yarn, this thing is a terrifying, hilarious beast that I don't think I'll ever be able to stop being in awe of.
