Color Out of Space
“What touched this place cannot be quantified or understood by human science.” Color Out of Space (Richard Stanley, 2019) A classic example of a poorly executed great idea. This movie was either butchered by the studio or incompetently edited or both. This could have been something special in someone else’s hands.
“‘Bad’ is such a big word for such a small word.” The Laundromat (Steven Soderbergh, 2019) The rare miss for Soderbergh. Everything about this movie is lazy. A poorly-aped, McKay-esque docudrama composed of haphazardly-constructed vignettes that utilize too many narrative styles to note. Did I mention that everything about this movie is lazy?
“Goodness is only some kind of reflection upon evil.” Possession (Andrzej Zulawski, 1981) Touted by filmmakers I love and respect as a classic of the horror genre. Nonsense. It’s incoherent drivel. I literally booed the movie when it ended.
