    ★★★½

    7/10

    Shoutout to @bloodmountain for the request.

    I thought that I hated this movie, but on my second watch, it turns out that I don't. Begotten feels so eldritch and otherworldly that you probably get cursed for watching it. Its something that wasn't meant for human consumption, but has somehow leaked onto our astral plane. Very few films like it.

    In the tradition of Antonin Artaud, Begotten is designed to torture and puzzle its audience. To give the film a…

    Shoutout to @system_7 for the request.

    David Lynch once said that the inspiration for this movie came from a Bible verse. Many people online have been trying to figure what Bible verse he is referencing. Some say its Deuteronomy 24:16, while others…

    ★★★★

    8/10

    Shoutout to @thegoober for the recommendation.

    When people talk about one hit wonders, it is usually applied to musicians like MC Hammer or Vanilla Ice, but I believe that it can apply to directors as well. For example, Tommy Wiseau, who made The Room, and never made another film after that. Or Mary Herron and Richard Kelly, who made well-respected cult classics (American Psycho, Donnie Darko), but the rest of their filmography has nowhere near the same amount of…
