168 comments:

  1. Julia Ducournau's TITANE (2021, theater) [AMC has labeled "Titane" as 'Horror' in its website/app. Go figure!]

    "Raw" director tops herself. French firefighter rave!

    OR

    Worth seeing for 'Macarena' CPR scene alone.

    1. I can't wait to see this. The trailer was fantastic and I HATE watching trailers. The one I saw had zero dialog and was just images. Told me nothing. Full disclosure I didn't read your seven word review because I literally don't want to know anything.
