    Millennial and generational anxieties expressed through one big, messy family - that is, every family. The mundane, the everyday is contrasted with a deep sense of confusion and emptiness, something hollow at the core, a central beacon gone missing.

    Yup, this rips. A late 90s gritty, process-oriented thriller about a team of international professionals chasing something in an utterly nonsensical plot, complete with betrayals and practical car chases? Yes please.

    Griffin Dunne is a complete and utter wet blanket yet drips with sleaze in this film. Is this the only outright comedy Scorsese‘s ever done? Feels at once totally in line with the rest of his work and unique. Rainy NYC at night, populated by freaks and scumbags? Yes please.

    Yorgos Lanthimos really is, as the kids say, that bitch.

    I had the bluray sitting on my pile of shame for like two years before finally watching it tonight and it‘s actually kind of great? Love the creeping, drawn-out zooms (that feel even more ominous on digital for some reason), love the fragmenting of memories, love Olsen‘s performance. Also a wonderful illustration of how people can become complicit in their own abuse if there is a strong enough system in place to justify/perpetuate that abuse.
