    Female Trouble

    ★★★★

    A campy, mean spirited tone poem of inhumanity, debauchery and grotesquery. 

    It’s a trashterpiece that spawned an era of trash cinema. It dons that crown proudly. 

    John Waters was obviously breaking down boundaries to release a film with content like this in the early 70s. Hell - it kind of shocked me even now 40+ years later. He wasn’t just breaking down the boundaries, he was demolishing them with a wrecking ball. And in the process, he was crafting a…

    Not only is it a scathing commentary on…

    Inland Empire

    ★★★★★

    A little boy went out to play. When he opened his door, he saw the world. As he passed through the doorway, he caused a reflection. Evil was born. Evil was born, and followed the boy.

    Make no mistake, Inland Empire is Lynch’s truest “horror” film. This film gets under my skin more than most.

    It’s like a mosaic that’s been shattered into a million pieces. As you are on your hands and knees scrambling to piece it back together,…
