    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★

    Space seems packed to the rafters with malnourished alien insectoids. Part 3 will see an army of noise table and minimal techno artists taking on a full swarm and end up with a record deal on Mille Plateaux.

    I must be missing something here. Yeah it looks slick, killer score and some good performances but Caan’s no BS, salt of the earth American comes across as a frizzy incel. Also, Tuesday Weld’s character is a mere sketch of a human. I did enjoy all of the logistical parts though including a very phallic welding scene in all its sparkling glory. File under testosterone fantasy.

    For the Cronenberg completists only. Contains the bones of subjects explored in later movies but without the flesh to make it interesting. I spent most of the movie thinking about how the main protagonists (Adrian Tripod and Antoine Rouge lol) looked like a sick 70s art rock band like This Heat or John Cale’s backing musicians. Oh, and the ending is fucked!

    Mega cooked French environmental sci-fi trip designed by Caza with a power prog score. Sits neatly somewhere in between ‘Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind’ and The Incal. Highly recommended if you’re into Métal Hurlant and Robert Beatty airbrush art. Loved this!
