Bertrand Bonello's Zombi Child is genuinely uncategorisable genre fare - schoolgirls, voodoo, liberalism and Rihanna. There's a lot to unpick here but the abstract beauty of its visuals and the pulsating synth score meant it worked for the most part.
Sure, Gilliam can often be a messy and frustrasting director, with his films frequently overstuffed and overwhelmed from a surfeit of bold visual ideas (his last film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus being a prime example of being a mad, visually exuberent folly.) But I adore this film so much - from its Orwellian satire to the gorgeous, noir-ish set design and gallows humour. It remains one of Gilliam's most visionary, breathtaking works. A (flawed) masterpiece.
