This film had a lot of expectations, riding on the success of Peele's massive first horror hit Get Out. As expected, it tried to tackle social issues, applying more sweeping brushstrokes to human behaviour. It delves on issues of individuality and uniformity and how the latter brings out the collective hidden monsters in us. The movie leaves a lot of things unanswered more than things resolved.
Five different individuals walk by a rundown cinema run by the Projectionist and are curiously lured to watch whatever was showing at that time. What each of them saw was their own worst nightmare which were somehow parallels of their own lives.
We finally had the chance to see this after completely passing on seeing this in the theatres. It was fun identifying and confirming the Pokémon species as they appear. Props to the story being quite unpredictable until the last few minutes.
How symbolic that the 100th movie I've seen this year is given a rare personal five stars. This has Martin Scorcese's signature all over it: violence, editing, and New York. This has all the elements of a great film too. Extensive production design, star quality and historical reference. The year that the film was included in the Oscars was a tough one and this lost to Chicago.
The movie that started a franchise was a thrill to watch back then. But then you have the terrible close calls, the near mishap saves and the mega annoying neat adolescent female who constantly screams at the top of her lungs and made the worst blunders of all. But yeah, this was still fun to watch, considering.
