    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★½

    You’ll never believe this, but Bo Burnham is a Leo. 

    I like the range of production styles he created for this insular desperate lonely set of self-indulgent, self-loathing, self-aware songs and comedy bits. I laughed more than once and felt sympathy for all of us and this stupid dissociative online world we’ve created for ourselves. I’m glad we’re living in a realer version of reality now than we were last year. 

    He really should have cut a lot of this though. But: “My stupid friends are having stupid children” lol, yes, right here.

    Went into it thinking it was going to be a self-indulgent pissy millennial eye-roller, and it turns out to be this ingenious, funny, socially anxious masterpiece of a weirdo first feature. It got me, I love it.

    Really captures something about projecting a “don’t mess with me” attitude while being a careening mess, feels familiar from being 22 and, let’s be honest, pretty relatable now.

    I really admire Alex Garland for making this his directorial debut. It's small in scale, but ambitious in its intensity and focus, and in how dark and negative it is about men, especially in relation to women.

    I see this movie as an allegory for the internet and its treatment of women. As Adam Savage said in his wonderful story for The Moth, if the internet was a person, that person would have a serious problem with women.

    Hot damn, that was gratifying. 

    Part Rosemary’s Baby, part Drag Me to Hell, part Don't Breathe, and a little bit of Get Out, too. Hilarious pastiche and just a ton of fun. Samara Weaving, I love you.
