  • My Brother Has Bad Dreams

    My Brother Has Bad Dreams

    ★★★½

    Please, someone find me evidence that Spielberg saw this and was inspired to make his 1975 blockbuster.

    The obvious Psycho influence in My Brother Has Bad Dreams ain't bad at all. One could say the clumsy, homoerotic nude beach scene is unintentionally hilarious and nobody in real life talks the way that these characters do. The varying degrees of acting ability on display may leave some numb. But, for me, these qualities add to the film, intentional or not. I…

Being how things are in the U.S. at the moment, many of the reviews for Dragged Across Concrete have quickly devolved into a childish game of alt-right (racist) 4Chan shitbags vs. "triggered"…

    Dogtooth

    ★★★★½

    When I try to write about Dogtooth I find myself just describing things that happened in the film. But what is Dogtooth about? What is it saying? Man, you tell me.

    Taken at face value, this absurdist Greek exercise is about parenting. More specifically, it's about parental control. I think the film points out something that is rarely discussed, which is the amount of power parents can wield over their children. When someone has this much power over someone else,…
