    The Abomination

    ★★★½

    it was the shot on video horror filmmakers that really took what Robbe-Grillet et al were plying and ran with it.

    N. Took the Dice

    ★★★

    a companion to Eden and After. A re-edit more or less. An intentional one, diegesis guided by the role of a dice. The kind of consequence draining conceit i’d only tolerate by a few French writers who branched out into directing in the 60′s and 70′s.

    Promising Young Woman

    ★½

    if rape culture didn’t exist would it be necessary to invent it? One movie seems to think so. A hollow, confused redressing of the rape revenge genre made worse as i was dragged to this by someone wanting to redress me for watching those movies. They didn’t like it either. Anyway whatever, metrics:
    - Last House on the Left: 84 minutes
    - Ms. 45: 80 minutes
    - Savage Streets: 93 minutes
    - Naked Vengeance: 76 minutes
    - The Ladies Club: 85 minutes
    - Basie Moi: 77 minutes
    - This: 113 minutes

    Sorry, right side of history, you lose.

    Goodbye, Dragon Inn

    ★★★★½

    My first time seeing this in a long time. After seeing almost everything else he’s done, after seeing the original Dragon Inn, after he put this on his Sight and Sound top ten list, after last year’s global cinema shut down, after a rainy walk to the cinema today. All those factors, other factors, no factors at all. Whatever it is, i’m now completely with this.
