    Good God man, 1956. I would say that Kubrick came out of the gate great, but I've seen Fear and Desire. Which, by the way, was 1953. It's a terrible movie and Kubrick hated it for good reason, but to make a movie like this three years later? Inhuman! Of course Killer's Kiss came a year before this and it's definitely a step up from Fear and Desire. And This is a step up from Killer's Kiss! People have issues…

    "Can I spend the night here?"

    1977 saw a real talent emerge on the stage! I've been scared of this movie for as long as I've known about it. Lynch talks about it extensively in The Art Life and it always seemed like this untouchable thing. It seemed like it might be almost holy and indeed, Lynch calls it his most spiritual film. It certainly seems to be his most autobiographical. The movie doesn't suggest that kids are bad, but…

    ★★★½

    Well well well, the original The Fly is a charming CinemaScope picture! Pretty light on the scares and only meagerly horrifying, but it still mostly works. I've not seen Cronenberg's remake but if it's even remotely similar to this then I'll probably like it. Most of the horror of this picture is the suburban sort, the sort of horror that Lynch likes: horrifying things underneath the surface of an idyllic life. It's a very literal take on the theme though…

    ★★

    Imagine my surprise when, after watching this weird, sugary, definite-Amblin-production movie, seeing that cinematographer Dean "Halloween and The Thing" Cundey photographed it. Imagine my further surprise when I looked at all the fucking projects he's worked on. Holy shit dude. What a wild guy. Anyway, this movie is definitely low on his quality list, it's just not a very good looking movie. I guess that's because the set is very conventionally spooky, which means it's shapeless and ugly. The blocking…

    I've been scared out of my wits the last couple of days! Between this and Suspiria I've been properly terrified thanks to old cinema magic. I also think this is an extremely beautiful movie, not in the same way as Suspiria, but beautiful nonetheless. The script works overtime to endear us to these characters at the beginning, and it works, anchoring the movie all the way though regardless of whatever storms may pass. And what storms do pass motherfuckers, what…

    ★★★★½

    This is one of those movies that I am very glad I watched but I'll need to wait a good amount of time before I watch again. It's great, it's undoubtedly great and definitely stands as one of the most beautiful movies of all time, but it is an ordeal. The psychological terror ratchets up constantly, aided by what I think is an actual cursed score by Goblin. By the time of Sarah's big scene I was completely terrified. Not…
