    I Know Who Killed Me

    ★★

    Take out the pretentious Lynch ripoffs and the then-obligatory graphic torture scenes and this could actually be a pretty killer ‘10s Lifetime movie (which perhaps not incidentally Silverston went on to make). As is there’s some interesting metatextual/accidental stuff going on here but the rest is mostly a pretty dire imitation of a mishmash of ‘00s IMDb Top 250 Guy trends.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★

    I’m beginning to suspect that the real reason Nolan loves playing with representations of time so much is to obscure the fact that he knows fuck-all about how to represent space.

  • Beyond Lemuria

    Beyond Lemuria

    ★★

    This may not be a “good” movie by most conventional metrics, but I have had dreams about it nearly every night since I’ve seen it, so...

    mother!

    ★★

    Hell Is Other People (Wiping Their Grubby Mitts On Your Rustic But Tasteful West Elm Furniture, Apparently)

    Undeniably intense and thrilling in fits and starts, suggesting all sorts of potentially interesting avenues the film proceeds to flatly ignore in favor of thuddingly literal high school English symbolism, idiotic dorm room philosophy, and a general vibe of nominally-self-effacing-but-actually-self-aggrandizing schmuckery that can only be described as "Aronofsky-esque."

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★

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

    When you hear the phrase "Greek god," the first actor who comes to mind is obviously David Thewlis, right?

  • Eegah

    Eegah

    ★★

    Starring Arch Hall, Jr. as the 🌝 emoji.
