    Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil

    ★★★★½

    I have a tremendous affection for this dark fantasy fairytale. Something wicked between Guillermo Del Toro and Terry Gilliam

  • Cure

    Cure

    ★★★★½

    A hypnotic mutilation: rhythmically chilling, profoundly unsettling, and surgically violent.

  • The Handmaiden

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★½

    This movie centers the female gaze because I’m a woman who really liked it.

  • Dead Ringers

    Dead Ringers

    ★★★★½

    Two identical twins conjoined by emotional incest turn each other other inside-out with drugs and the cold, alien steel of “gynecological implements for mutant women.” Radical techniques are medically necessary to open these two boys up to the beauty contest that eludes their insides.

  • Brand New Cherry Flavor

    Brand New Cherry Flavor

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Did Lisa Nova effectively utilize girl power when her selfishness and penchant for manipulation resulted in the horrific mutilation and death of 6 innocent people?

    No, but she DID effectively utilize girl power when she fingered herself and then had a himbo fist her in her brand new rib-pussy, all on-screen in pornographic detail.

    The ‘good for her’ to ‘girl stop’ to ‘good for her?’ pipeline, immaculately crawled through by Rosa Salazar. This show really commits to being fuck-nasty and (mostly) commits to being messy in a way that’s genuinely refreshing.

    Also jfc that was the single most menacing couch I’ve ever seen.

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★★½

    Literally all you had to do was be nice to this woman’s dead child memorial rabbits. And yet.
