Taking Tiger Mountain

Taking Tiger Mountain ★★★½

Watched this a couple days ago and forgot to log it.

Kinda went in completely blind, only remembered the title, thought it sounded cool.

But wow this is borderline incoherent in an uncomfortably fun way. For reference, the opening scene is footage of Bill Paxton humping a mattress while female scientists discuss chemically castrating him and the effects of his sensory deprivation.

He’s also brainwashed into assassinating a dystopian pimp.

Fine cinema.
