    Gonna have to sleep on this one — I distinctly recall really wanting to see this as a teenager, but somehow it slipped through my fingers for two decades. A true Frankenstein creation of a film that could only have been spawned in the early aughts.

    Insane sound design — whenever I felt my attention waning, Gunn’d crank what may as well have been a chainsaw on the soundtrack. As for the film itself, I admired the ultra-grainy psychedelia but found it largely impenetrable. Will revisit someday.

    Loved it. It feels as long as it is, but I mostly didn’t mind. In fact, I hope Malick continues making films for as long as humanly possible. August Diehl and Valerie Pachner’s faces have been swirling around in my brain all day, and James Newton Howard’s score is the icing on the cake.
