    The Myth of the American Sleepover

    ★★★★½

    Now this is my kind of coming of age. There isn't any like it I've ever seen. A refreshment of nostalgia. An adolescent, pubescent slice of white suburban insecurity. It's difficult to put into words the insurmountable strangeness of the film. It's a straightforward script to be clear, but the effictiveness of its simplicity, the natural performances from each character, and malaise of daily life is captured beautifully.

    I refuse to believe I'm the only fucking guy who thinks Get Out is way too highly regarded, and that meanwhile Us is The Godfather of sophomore features. Lupita creating a new slasher villain right before our fucking eyes. That couldn't possibly be a hot take.

    A.I. is almost too many things rolled into one. A dystopian sci-fi epic, an endearing sentiment fest, an all too dark for childrens fable. Completely within the wheelhouse of Spielberg's sandbox, which goes without saying it's an experience unlike anything I've ever watched. Haley Joel Osment right off the heels of The Sixth Sense. Doesn't quite deliver on that level a performance, but still one of the best child performers of all time. In typical Spielberg fashion, we get a…

    ★★★★

    Some films demand to have some respeck on their names. Seems to me, mostly violent films of this nature demand attention. Anything as challenging as The House that Jack built, or the Golden Glove, or The Devils, cinema of the extreme persuasion absolutely demand eyes. And that's exactly what we get with Man Bites Dog. For Christ's sake, within the first 11 seconds, we're forced to watch a woman strangled to death with the utmost realism. Directors Benoît Poelvoorde, Rémy…

    ★★★★

    Pieces of a Woman is a tender portrait of a woman slowly fading into depression, with the best performance I've seen this year in Vanessa Kirby.

    The body horror sub-genre typically displays the most horrifying that horror can offer, establishing terror from within the body. As a first foray into this distinct genre, Shyamalan really brings it. Has his dialogue and his preferred performances he wrings out of his characters gotten any less cringier? Slightly. There's still some cringe, but it's a style I've come around too since the resurgence of this man's career. Old is fascinating from start to finish, but where the ball is…
