    “DEATH IS AN EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE”

    Following a rewatch, I have decided this is the best film from Gaspar Noé. He is the host of the worst night out of all-time: a transfixing trip that will make your eyes roll back and blood stop pumping. Climax is a visceral excursion for those who dare, orchestrated by a filmmaker who loves both the medium, and himself.

    It may be the most accessible of Noé’s five films; Enter The Void (whilst periodically terrific)…

  • Possession

    Possession

    ★★★★½

    Clumsily associated with the notorious “Video Nasties” of the British Board of Film Classification’s Video Recordings Act of 1984 that banned the release of the majority of extreme cinema, Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession was only available in it’s purest, uncut version in 1999 in the UK. The elusive nature of the film earned a cult status in its later years, specifically with supporters of arthouse film, who choose to ignore its gruesome and utterly sensationalised surface to delve into its complex…

    “There’s no such thing as a bad coincidence.”

    I’m telling you, the introduction of the Mystery Man is top three David Lynch moments. Up there with the Winkie’s scene in Mulholland Drive & Part 8 of Twin Peaks: The Return.

    9/10

  • The Face of Another

    The Face of Another

    ★★★★½

    "I want to put out all the lights in the world. Or gouge everyone's eyes out..."

    A symphony of illusion and misdirection, a Frankenstein-inspired narrative that blurs the role of creator and creation, a post-World War Two Japanese mind-bender inspired by the bygone Soviet Montage movement and the contemporary French New Wave.

    The Face of Another manipulates film form so playfully and deviously that the identity crisis from Mr. Okuyama translates to the camera itself. It is not necessarily ground-breaking…

    “I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.”

    I watched this for the first time almost 2 years ago. I didn’t like it. I thought it was boring. But after finally rewatching this science-fiction epic, I can confirm that my original thoughts were plain wrong. Kubrick is my favourite director due to his sheer ambitiousness, terrifically tasteful style as well as a visual and auditory…

    “Let me get this straight. You are saying that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante that spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands. And your idea is to blackmail this man? Good luck.”

    70mm for 10th anniversary. Favourite of all-time and the BEST cinema experience I’ve ever had.
