    I like these icy white collar conspiracy thriller flicks, I think this is really meticulously sleek and a pretty bone chilling portrayal of faceless corporate amorality, focusing more on real tortured inner character turmoil over thrills. A little clinical, yes, but I miss these like 20 million budgeted middlebrow affairs. Hate to be a scold here tho but that portrayal of bipolar mania with Arthur is a little rough lol.

    High camp hysterics and transgressive disdain for suburban conservative social values, only someone from Baltimore could have made this. Holds up pretty well outside the odarama gimmick.

    A film made by an absolute freak, driven mad by JFK assassination— and this is his search for truth. But the thing is, he knows his film won’t bring the truth, it won’t change what has already happened. This  country has a body count and its red white and blue patriotism is, at the end of the day, built upon the myths swallowed by the unknowing masses. Absolutely haunting.

    Lyrical, meditative ennui on the drag strips and back roads of Americana. Immense vibe movie. Rip Monte.
