Gremlins 2: The New Batch Geregisseerd door Joe Dante
Dante’s 1984 novelty hit poked fun at cutesy, sub-Spielberg entertainment, but its sequel aims at larger targets. In its first five minutes alone, it satirizes regurgitated sequels, gentrification, and the corporate takeover and subsequent exploitation of entertainment for mind-numbing profit. The rest of the movie only doubles down on the joke-per-second ratio, from Looney Tunes intrusions to a Persona-esque mid-movie meltdown that gets back on track with the help of Hulk Hogan.

As with the recent CABIN IN THE WOODS, an antiseptic and efficient surveillance bureaucracy is portrayed as a form of social organization whose continued survival is undeserved, and which must be duly and gleefully demolished by monsters of its own creation. This destruction is enacted through scene after scene of diverse genre parodies of camp cinema.

Despite the incessant, and admittedly hilarious, sideswipes at Hollywood, during my latest viewing, I found the film to be rather depressing (in a good way, I suppose). In fact, what the gremlins represent is not just absent-minded chaos but pure anarchy — the breakdown of societal order. They are the repressed ids of the working man, living from day to day, pissing on his dreams, relinquishing his last few shreds of pride — and self-esteem — with every pestiferous paycheck.
