    Where have you been all my life? This film really strikes a vein that leads directly and truly to my heart. Being a kid in the early 2000's, there were a specific set of films made in America during that time that really hit me. They had a depth and a warmth that only came out of Hollywood extremely rarely during that time or otherwise. Big Fish is the first that comes to mind. This too, gives me Big Fish…

    I loved everything about this, the S&M themes, the gorgeous b&w cinematography, the themes of obsession and power, the derelict buildings and the dreamlike structure. However, it's a blatant derivation of Meshes of The Afternoon so I can't love it as much as I'd hoped I would. Definitely excellent and adds something different than Meshes, a more masculine perspective perhaps, but still.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Man boiled down to his most base desires, and the consequences to his existence as deemed deplorable by society. I loved the constant barrage of sales people trying to sell him artificial foods, religion, newspapers, condoms, everything of the modern world, and how few shits he cares about the modern world. The condom salesperson was great foreshadowing. Definitely going to rewatch again soon.

    Exactly how I'd expect being on a ton of acid during the 80's would feel like. Time slowed down. This is good stuff 👍.

    One of the most glorious shit shows you'll ever see. Amazing what money can do when it's mixed with sex, crazy, and a blissfully ignorant desire to "raise awareness" about "saving the animals". Absolutely ridiculous.

    Road to hell is paved with good intentions! And I ain't complaining. Blessed be that this thing exists!

    I had six panic attacks while watching this. I had to go outside for a cigarette break midway through. This film has absolutely nothing to do with mental illness, nor do any or Ari Aster's films have any "deeper meaning". This man's a full blown sadist. He loves to hurt his audience as much as he loves to inflict pain on his own characters. And he's not just hurting both, he's mocking his audience too, and mocking the very notion…

    So disappointed, I had such high hopes for this. Officially my least favorite Cage film. I wish that this had been a SyFy original, because then I might've actually enjoyed it. Some characters just enter, develop subplots romantic, political, and otherwise and just leave without a trace for 90% of the film, to return and render those subplots completely vaporized. The CGI looked very cheap for the most part, as did the lens and camera work. The dialogue was SyFy…
