What are people saying?

  • I.L.'s rating of the film Teenage Hooker Becomes a Killing Machine

    What if genre films grew up on Film as Subversive Art rather than Andrew Sarris or Cahiers du Cinema? An acid rush of strange effects and intense emotions, offensive and poetic, trashy and beautiful, the no-budget style forming its lyricism and lethargy, both essential in creating the singular electric shock experience of the film. Who cares about classicism when a film like this soars, Icarus-style, into new realms.
