opinionated by chance, always right by the grace of god
intriguing, beautiful, and moving. the pacific northwest is the perfect place to set this movie, both culturally and geographically. the first chapter of this is just gorgeous, and the move from pastoral love to shiny urban grotesquery is well accomplished. nick cage's performance pretty much closes the book on any argument over whether or not he's a good actor, but everyone here is great. the writing is fucking stellar throughout, too. all in all, its a remarkable piece of craftsmanship…
a sheer geyser of creativity, unhampered by the need to be more than awesome.
inframan symbolizes everything i love about older b-movies - the mile-a-minute editing, the tonal whiplash, the ill-fitting score with moments of genuine brilliance, the dialogue that sounds like it was written by a john searle thought experiment. everything you could love about the pulp crud of the 60s-80s is elevated to its purest and most enjoyable form here.
this movie boasts some of the most entertaining…
