An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

Raw, unfettered idiosyncrasy. At its best when it feels a bit like Lynch, at its worst when it's just people being wilfully obtuse.

Robin Hood

An utterly repellent retelling of a tale that has already been retold too many times. The teenager described it as alright if it was a cartoon but awful as a film. She's only half right, it would be fucking awful as a cartoon too.

Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

A study of the shifting power dynamics in an extended family as they all get shitfaced and shout at each other. Brilliant.

In which a clown repeatedly terrifies people. Usually by brutally slaughtering them.

Suspiria [2018]

Only Argento can make Argento's Suspiria so Guadagnino wisely positions his Suspiria far from Argento's so it can flourish as its own magnificently demented beast.

The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs

Five stories about the capriciousness of life and death and one story about how stories help distract us from the capriciousness of life and death.

The Mountain Of The Cannibal God [La montagna del dio cannibale/ Slave Of The Cannibal God/ Prisoner Of The Cannibal God]

I couldn't decide which random moment of exploitative excess peppered through this fairly tame jungle romp got it placed on the video nasty banned list. I reckon it was either the extraordinary amount of real life animal killings or the bit where a cannibal openly fingers herself for a few minutes. Actually no, it was probably the guy fucking the pig. Yeah, the guy fucking the pig is what did it.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

The story about a funny self deprecating little wizard and his funny unpredictable little creatures is rudely barged aside in order to give easier access to the cash cow's bruised udder as everybody begins furiously yanking at the tired teat once more.

The Night Comes For Us

An eye shredding parade of exuberant brutality.

The 10th Victim [La decima vittima]

Remarkably ahead of its time with its futuristic depiction of televised murder used for mass entertainment. Very much of its time with a typically Italian plot about a man trying to avoid marriage.

Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers

Superb gooey pod people effects, Jeff Goldblum and Donald Sutherland repeatedly engaging in googly-eyed staring competitions and Leonard Nimoy with massive fuck off sideburns.


The director of The Incident and The Similars delivers more goods in his third movie, but no where near as many goods as in those first two.
