    The Missing Pieces:
    Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me and Its Inclusion in Film Canons

    When David Lynch took the opportunity in 1992 to return to the world of Twin Peaks he subverted viewers' expectations and ended up making what would be his most hated film, Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me. Booed at its Cannes premier and torn apart by critics, who called the film "artistic suicide”1 and said that “Lynch badly needs a change of pace,”2 the film…

    Must We Burn Salo?:
    Salvaging Pasolini's Film as a Sadean Object Through Apparatus Theory

    Abstract:
    In this paper I reassess Pasolini's film, Salo (1975), as a Sadean text by means of using the theoretical lens of Apparatus Theory, as Pasolini's film has been unfairly judged by scholars that have neglected to assess the film using this framework. Many publications at the time of Salo's release found that Pasolini's film was not authentically Sadean, however, scholars such as Roland Barthes and…

    Daisies is my favorite film, so I'm going to do this review in two sections. I'm going to spend the first paragraph telling you why you should see the film; don't read the rest until you have, and hopefully I'll be convincing enough that you'll spend the next 70 minutes watching it. The rest of the review will explore why this film is my favorite.

    Daisies is fun. It's about having fun and the film itself encompasses fun. The editing…

    The Conjuring

    ★★★★★

    You know a movie is incredibly fucking terrifying when everyone in the theatre is dead silent. Nobody is on their cell-phone. You can't even hear the munching of popcorn. Finally it reaches a point where several audience members begin to break out in awkward laughter--not because something in the film is cheesy, funny, or stupid, it is because they have realized that a movie has made them reach the point of complete terror and they are laughing to let their…
