It's like Barton Fink, Being John Malkovich and Videodrome had a three-way.
4 September 2015 | by jtrosenblattSee all my reviews

So I was just thoroughly impressed. After watching this movie I felt the way I felt after seeing Momento or Rushmore or Pi or Being John Malkovich or Maelstrom or Cube or I Stand Alone - you know, when you see a movie and you realize there's a director out there who has this unique vision of the world and through whatever luck and circumstance required they were allowed to make a movie. It's great when the talented visionary messed up people who really should be making movies actually get to make one, that's what I was reminded of watching this. A masterful understanding of tone and pacing in a film that uses body horror undercut with deadpan humor in a way that is unique (yes, unique even though it's 2015 and unique seems like a relic in the rebooted franchise obsessed wasteland of modern cinema). This well shot, well written, well edited and well acted (Anne Sorce was absolutely amazing in what appears to be her first big on screen role) film made by a visionary whose love of movies is paralleled by his respect for the Audience (i.e. what I said about pacing - this is how you cut a movie, people! Seriously, take note). And yes, I will be procuring this in the future to watch it again, but more important, I can't wait to see what the guy who made this makes next time. I don't usually get to have this much fun watching a movie but when I do I really really appreciate it.
