I like this sort of low budget horror, that relies more on the characters coping, or not, with the disasters they face. It’s a film that does a lot with not very much.
I recently rated Euphoria as possibly one of the best series this year. It may have to share that accolade with The Handmaid’s Tale, especially the last three episodes. What an emotional rollercoaster? A lesson to anyone listening.
This was bonkers nonsense. It covered all the bases, but satisfy none of them; went all in on a weak hand.
This falls into the category of lions led by lambs war film; soldiers with honour following the orders of idiots. As a film, the emotional kick in the guts that would’ve come from a fight to the last man, gets diluted by real life events. Still, there are solid performances from all concerned. It also helps that I was ignorant of the history.
I recently had an interview with The Plus to become one of their staff writers. It would be a great gig if I can get it. A chance to write about things that really interest me. You should take a look at the site if you’re at all interested in the arts.
While looking around their site I came across the work of Emily Scaife, a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Her images and animations feel to me like organic matter probing the digital universe.
Her work puts me in mind of Len Lye’s experimental films.
Lye was more interested in the kinetic than organic but for me both filmmakers share a similar vibrance.
