    Halloween

    ★★★★

    Michael Myers doesn’t require a character. It’s the absence of his character that makes him petrifying.

    Michael Myers doesn’t need a Freudian defense to justify his actions. He’s plain evil.

    Mulholland Drive

    Who wants to have their patience be tested and challenged? Raise your hand. If you did, then this movie is for you. If not, then don’t blame me -- I warned you.

    For the devotee of David Lynch films, this may be easy to decode. If you study his films, then you know they are filled with symbolism and metaphors. I must admit I’ve only seen Eraserhead, and that was incomprehensible to me as an average movie watcher. Also, if…
