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

    People get so stuck on what it's all about but it's really quite simple when you think about the monkey saying "Judy" in Fire Walk With Me is trapped inside the body of the woman with no eyes who is actually a tulpa of Diane which is fitting because Au Revoir Simone performs in the roadhouse and one of the singers looks exactly like Laura Dern who was probably cast because of her role in Blue Velvet where she plays…

    Anti-ASMR. The best sounding movie with terrible sounds. Constantly makes you wonder whether there's something you're not seeing and keeps you desperate to find it.

    This was a samurai mad max western with nuclear zombie ghosts starring Nicolas Cage and that doesn't even begin to describe how outrageous this movie is. My mouth was agape almost the entire time.

    First slam dunk of Sundance so far. I was transfixed the entire time. I'm usually lukewarm on stories that try to tie childhood/cultural trauma to explain actions of violence, usually because they get from point A to point B in a very black-and-white, simplified, "they are abusive because they were abused" way, but I thought this film set up the dominos and hidden enemy in such a smarter way than most. All of the moments of emotional impact and shock were anything but cheap thanks to the sharp character writing and incredible performances by the leads. What a debut by Lyle Corbine.
