I don't know how you even make a movie this repulsive.
Lovecraft reinvisioned as a sleazy, cheesy b-movie. It's a surprisingly good fit.
Swear to god, the only good part of the movie is the "Hey, what's an email?" bit.
Joss Whedon knows that he's now the arcane god-king of nerddom, right?
Surprisingly not bad!
Michael Gira and J.G. Thirlwell's comments are incredibly insightful. The second half of the movie is very questionable, but the first is an excellent record of the short-lived no wave scene.
Surprisingly fun movie.
The most post-rock movie ever. I mean, it even has Mogwai on the score!
I love the way Sylvain Chomet seems to be familiar with the visual medium. He seems to use voices and sound less as a means through which his stories are told and more as a way to convey atmosphere.
For a film that really didn't need to be made at all, this is surprisingly quite alright. It still suffers from the same problem prequels have though: You already know what's going to happen. There are certainly some things to like about it though. Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character is a surprisingly strong heroine, and the different approach this film takes keeps it from being completely stale.
I just....what? What?
The only good Adam Sandler movie.
I like this more than I would probably like the Monkees themselves.
Or, Nicolas Cage is insane.
Here's hoping this film gets better recognition with time. It's definitely very sparse and controlled, but I feel it sets up an interesting atmosphere. By limiting the dialogue, Jarmusch is giving us a real sense of mystery. Also, as a drone fan, this soundtrack is the best thing ever
This film has absolutely gorgeous cinematography
This has beautiful cinematography and it's genuinely uncomfortable, but there are a few localization issues that really detract from this movie's power. It's still pretty good, especially for Masters of Horror.
The way this is shot is fantastic. It really brings an emotional urgency to everything. And it goes great with Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
This is an excellent character study. It doesn't gloss over anything, really.
