    ★★★½

    Proof that you can make a great film with very little money, you just have to be a genius.

    Seriously though, watch this at half speed, figure out what Jackson did to achieve these insane shots, effects and stunts and you have an honest to God masterclass in making an action film on no budget.

Continues PTAs obsession with people finding “happiness” in ways that seem totally unhealthy and harmful from the outside but somehow lead to a twisted equilibrium.

    Was worried this would destroy me after a recent… well not breakup but something, but thankfully this is all about the thrill of the new, the intoxicating excitement…
