    Virginie Efira, you have yet to let me down.

    A compelling character study that is as gripping as a pressure-cooker thriller. It is Efira's fantastic work, the tight pacing, the smart screenplay that plays upon the expectations of melodrama and psychological intrigue Barraud's insistence in being wilfully obscure with character motivations that make the film soar.

    As alluring as it is thought-provoking, the fact that I am still thinking about it says a lot about David Cronenberg as a filmmaker, even when exploring familiar motifs.

    With its bounty of ideas of binary concepts begging to be broken, self-degredation/evolution, art and commerce; all told with an exploitation body horror edge, an enticing and pensive mood and pace and a sliver of self-awareness; I found myself compelled and aroused all the way through.

    You couldn't ask for a better cast to follow Cronenberg's vision.

    CHIP 'N DALE - RESCUE RANGERS is the funniest animated film since TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES.

    Deeply satirical of Hollywood in treating nostalgia as a cash cow while being adorably innocent in its views on friendship and adventure; I had a blast with this one.

    The numerous details in the world building adds tons of replay value.

    Watching this film in 4DX whilst having a fever and a full stomach was either the best decision I'd made, or the worst decision.

    In either case, I was truly in the danger zone. And it was worth it.
