Men

Men ★★★

Initial Notes:

1.
This is the second movie in the new "M"CU:
The first was Darren Aronofsky's mother!.

That's the film I thought about most while watching this one, and Jennifer Lawrence's performance in that film was the one I thought about most watching Jessie Buckley in this.

2.
There is a greasy pub near my house called "Rory's." I'm going to think of this film, and of Rory Kinnear's face, every time I walk in now.

3.
The very first thing I saw on my phone while the credits were rolling was breaking news that Alex Jones is ranting that men's penises have shrunk down to 1/3 of what they were in the 1960s as the result of a conspiracy among globalists.

4.
This movie has one idea. It's creepy for a little while, but it doesn't become more interesting or scary. It just gets really, really gross.

5.
Other, far-better films this one reminded me of at scattered moments:
The Shining
The Ladykillers
The Green Knight
Get Out
The Thing
