Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising ★★★★½

YOOOOOOO, as an aesthetic experience of being washed over by sound juxtaposed over flashy images and staccato edits, this is WAAAAAAY up my alley! A fun, transgressive rock ‘n’ roll bacchanal!

Also quick imo hot take, the “He’s a Rebel” scene is a better, more visceral use of a Crystals song in film than the “Then He Kissed Me” long shot from “Goodfellas.” 😎 On another personal note, I find it ironic that “Party Lights” (a song I’ve long considered a quintessential anthem of sexual frustration) plays just as things get very literally homoerotic, so that subverted my expectations!
