    ★★★★

    First half is absolutely batshit, incoherent, every-single-editing-trick mania and I absolutely loved it. While intensely assaulting on the senses and self-indulgent, it’s exactly the kind of thing that’s emblematic of the man himself. While I definitely enjoyed the first half more, I completely understand the necessity to slow things down in the last chunk, but I wish it could have still been a little more exciting than the complete shift to (mostly still good) generic biopic territory.

    Drove two hours to see the this in theaters for the 40th anniversary re-release, just for it to be a really shitty transfer, have the surround sound mixed improperly, and miss the opening sequence because the theater lights never got shut off. But still an amazing experience simply because I can literally never not enjoy watching this movie. 

    The chest chomp through the blood testing scene is one of the best 30 minute runs ever made.
