The Menu

Not a fan.

Movie had a lot of promise and was just squandered by a flat third act. I laughed a bit and Ralph Fiennes was great but the ending really ruined the whole film for me.

The hilariously stupid ending was my favourite part.

Anyone catch Skinamarink? It overstays its welcome quite a bit and has weirdly expository dialogue for the form, but otherwise I thought it was great. Definitely a lot of notes of James Benning, Lynch, and Michael Snow (who died a few weeks before it hit the screens) throughout. The ending and a few other scenes of barely visible faces and doorways were revolutionary and extremely effective. Above all it's worth seeing just to see the angry bros walk out of the theatre. Excited to see what the director does next and what this influences, this is a brand of horror that's been pretty much untapped until now.
Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging, the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.
