    Ghosts Can't Do It

    Unpredictable, unintelligible, and completely unhinged. feels like a genuinely good example of the idea that if nothing works, everything works.

    Love Is a Gun

    Positively Lynchian

  • Betrayed

    Betrayed

    Waffles so abruptly between horrifyingly relevant commentary and full melodrama that it’s hard to say whether this works as a whole, but it’s definitely intense and has some ace performances (John Mahoney!!!). Couldn’t stop thinking about how much more bonkers (and problematic) this bizarre Eszterhas script would be with Verhoevens direction.

    Director’s cut

    The length (140 minutes) and sheer absurdity may have lulled me into some kind of hypnotic state, but I REALLY dug this. Every single thing is confidently cranked up past ten, especially Rubén Blades.

    The locations/sets/soundtrack are good, but all other aspects of this movie - specifically the dialogue and Billy Baldwin - are so violently unsexy and silly that it almost feels like a parody. Still kind of rules?

  • Hollow Man

    Hollow Man

    It’s the Verhoeven slasher we need, but it’s not the Verhoeven slasher we deserve.

  • Striptease

    Striptease

    This must be what people who don’t like Showgirls see when they watch Showgirls. I truly believe an unhinged Eszterhas AI wrote this. “Chesty La France.” Soooo much Annie Lennox.

    Possession

    This is the only movie I’ve ever seen.

    Saw

    Extended Version

    Forgot this is so heavy on se7en-like procedural and so light on gore (in a good way). Cary Elwes looks like an absolute ghoul. Every aspect of this is aggressively 2004. Jigsaw makes miniatures in an old mannequin factory. It’s alright!
