    Blind Woman's Curse

    ★★★½

    This fever dream of a movie feels like Takashi Miike was smoking weed and watching Yakuza epics and samurai films and suddenly he got a phone call from his agent and said “do you want to make a Japanese adaption of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?” and he said “yeah sounds cool…” but never read the source material and this is what we got.

Johnson is especially adept at making genre films that pay respect to established traditions while also subverting tropes to deliver something fresh and unexpected.

    Expertly written, impeccably directed, and featuring an A-List cast at their most fun and unrestrained. Toni Collette, Chris Evans, and obviously Daniel Craig stand out. However, it's…
