  • The Tiger of Eschnapur

    The Tiger of Eschnapur

    ★★★

    Love to see Fritz Lang returning to his roots, and in dazzling color no less. That saïd...

  • Johnny Mnemonic

    Johnny Mnemonic

    ★★★

    A deadly pandemic exacerbated by corporate greed, people losing themselves to the Internet, telepathic computer hacking cyborg dolphins, VR, video chat, “iPhones.” This movie’s predictions for 2021 are spot-on!

  • Baraka

    Baraka

    ★★★

    A film full of literally jaw-dropping images that unfortunately tries to have it both ways w/r/t organizing itself around a deliberate thesis vs. “letting the images speak for themselves” and ends up largely failing to accomplish either as a result. There are times where this feels a bit too much like an upscale Mondo film.

    That match cut from the wavy lines raked into an elderly woman’s zen garden to the veins on the back of her hand tho 😙👌

  • Jessica Forever

    Jessica Forever

    ★★★

    Kinda like if Apichatpong Weerasethakul directed a Metal Gear Solid game.
