    This is like the "Martyrs" of Mumblecore.

    Revenge is one of those very french feeling slashers where it is deeply stupid but has a weirdly ponderous execution as if the director feels like they are making some kind of socio-political treatise. You have to really suspend your disbelief because the amount of abuse everyone in the film takes and keeps ticking is at times absurd.
    I really liked Vincent Colmbe, he kind of looks like a young Eli Wallach. Also the soundtrack is awesome.
    The film is…

    For some reason I haven't rewatched this as many times as other Argento films from this period, perhaps because I mostly remembered the twist and thought that it would spoil the film for me. But even knowing the central twist, the film holds up really well.

    Golgo 13: The Professional

    The sublime ridiculousness of this, especially some of the sex scenes where babes act as if the expressionless Duke Togo is manna from heaven is hilarious. And the animation is beautifully moody and the use of watercolored stills is really effective. And the snake man seems to be a character from a Junji Ito story.
    But ultimately too much sexual violence that is played for titillation kind of makes this a little too problematic to be enjoyed without feeling a bit weird about it.
