    i understand why this was a deeply personal film for snyder to make and i like/respect a lot of the ideas he’s shooting off here. zombie tigers are fun! the zombie lore is fun! when he’s doing goofy “shit falls apart” it’s fun! the problem is that there is just so much bloat which results in a mostly dull movie with brief glimpses of a snyder that i keep wishing i liked more.

    didn’t really like to obtuseness of the plot but to be fair to it i was already in a really bad mood once i found out fathom had mislabelled the screening as subbed when it was actually dubbed. will probably rewatch it at some point later this year.

    The last 15 minutes of this movie have some really wonderul and uplifting moments. The talk with the dad, the final shot, the way the sister reacts, all of these small things that make me wish I had movies with moments like these growing up.

    Despite being extremely problematic, I was down with this movie right up until the party. It’s one thing to have a rape scene in your movie, it is a completely different thing to glorify it. Everything just slides right on downhill from there without ever truly acknowledging how badly these characters have fucked up. 

    I admire some of the rawness of the movie and a lot of the way this is shot, but the second half of the story is irredeemable.
