    Less a movie than a manifesto, this affront to American good taste is as much a product of its time as Fassbinder's WHY DOES HERR R. RUN AMOK? or Jodorowsky's THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, the proud afterbirth of 60s counter-cinema like Godard's LE CHINOISE and Warhol's THE NUDE RESTAURANT.

    Mia Goth is a super-star. Like some cross between Shelley Duvall circa BREWSTER McCLOUD and GUMMO-era Chloë Sevigny.

    Horror fans, X-mas came early. Especially for those of us who love the genre, despite the fact that 99% of what's made in its name is pretty disposable. By my count there have been less than a dozen true masterpieces this century -- HEREDITARY, INSIDE, GET OUT, and Ti West's own HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, among them -- and although this doesn't…
