How long were you alone with that dog?
Need to rewatch; the VHS tape I watched this in was a bit damaged so there were numerous sequences where the image was unwatchable with how scratched up it was, but thankfully that didn't completely take away from the extremely tense experience. Obviously not a surprise to anyone as I'm very late to this classic, but yeah I loved the paranoic feeling and all the gnarly effects. This also just works remarkably…
Rian Johnson invented movie entertainment.
Seriously though, this was an absolute blast. Go watch it now, no matter what you're doing. I have a strong feeling this is going to become a comfort movie for me. Rian Johnson is god. Ana de Armas is perfection. Why are you still reading? Go, buy your tickets. See it again if you've seen it already. Take your family, take your neighbors! Just give me more Benoit Blanc mysteries please
Leaving the cinema after this ended and for the rest of the evening I found myself having the most incredible, cinematic high I've had in ages. I absolutely adored this one. I feel like I could've watched this endlessly for hours, I never wanted it to end. Love, love, love these characters and their world. Truly the perfect hangout film, my favorite kind.
More thoughts to come on a second viewing, which I can assure will happen real soon.
