    Campion takes the base erotic thriller as a template and molds it into something much more psychologically incapacitating. plunges into the carnality of sexual desire and how that establishes the eerie presence of danger embedded within. Dion Beebe's work here serves as a primer for his later collaborations with Michael Mann...there's no sanctum to be found within the imagery but a distinct beauty reveals itself in the grime of the neon-cloaked corners and shadows. honestly worth it just to hear Mark Ruffalo say the words "no sense of cock whatsoever". astonishing.

    watching this on the big screen is the definitive experience for multiple reasons, not the least of which being everyone’s collective hate for james. anyway…masterpiece. grateful to have seen on 35mm with Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook in attendance, truly a once-in-a-lifetime viewing

    totally gonna get dunked on for watching this before the original Swedish film but i don't care, this was incredible. atmospheric and unsettling but at the same time so achingly human and emotionally puncturing. less of a typical vampire flick and more of an examination of loneliness and how it brings people together. Matt Reeves is a fucking legend, i have total confidence in him, Fraser and Giacchino (all three of whom are operating at insane heights here) to go above and beyond with The Batman next year and this left me speechless. ticked every single one of my boxes, perfect winter night film.

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

    Joe Keery murdering a guy by running him over with a car while the Gummy Bear song plays is POETIC CINEMA!

    The director of this (who is a white woman) said back in February in this interview that "Although it's a critically important Chinese story and it's set in Chinese culture and history, there is another culture at play here, which is the culture of Disney".

    that should tell you pretty much all you need to know. Disney, how fucking hard is it to just hire directors of color?
