    this is the best christmas movie i've ever seen where the male lead beats a man unconscious with a garbage can.

    experienced police detective reviewing a crime scene: (points to dismembered body) 'could that have been done with a chainsaw...' (points to bloody chainsaw by body) '...like that one over there?'

    i love this movie.

    honestly, i think if i watched that tennis scene high (if i still smoked pot) i might laugh myself into having a stroke.

    mikkelsen playing a film obsessive is a typical letterboxd user's fantasy character, probably.

    i was won over 15 minutes when we see them watching paul morrissey's frankenstein. it could have turned into a julia roberts romcom after that and it would still be a 3.

    also had a cover of pere ubu's final solution on the s/t during the opening sequence. i would have preferred to hear the original, but still, that's pretty cool.

    all of which is to say that refn had it together early on. i really liked it.

    interesting idea undermined by some overblown acting imo.

    i gave this a nice rating & really enjoyed it when i caught this for the first time last year.

    but i don't think i gave it its proper due. this is incredibly well done. perfectly paced, brutal, sleazy. and it really builds tension all the way through.

    it's a 'single take' movie - i'm assuming there were edits, because it did appear there were a few points when the camera quickly panned or was focused on something slightly blurry or…

    next to happiness/welcome to the dollhouse, this & blow out make up my favourite back to back output from any director probably. i like blow out more, but they're both great.

    nancy allen looks her best here. wish they had made her a little trashier though. that's something that i enjoy.

    i like this more than i might otherwise cuz it probably bothers people now with its 'problematic' plot.
