i'm not sure if you'd like La Bete. it's kind of pretentious. but when the bestiality hits it just goes for broke like nothing else

mad foxes is definitely a blast. the version i saw was pretty explicit but i still got a nagging feeling it could have been cut

What Have They Done to Your Daughters? 1974, Massimo Dallamano

Been in the queue for a while and pulled the trigger tonight only because of the 'horror' tag on IMDB. That tag needs to be removed. Not horror in the least, but the good thing is that this came out of nowhere and totally floored me at nearly every turn. The score, the camera work, the writing, the plot, the pacing, the reveals, the tease of sleaze, everything. Recommended if you're into Italian crime flicks of that era (with just a hint of giallo).

an example of giallo with social conscience (relative). there are several films relating to child exploitation/abuse/murder in a similar vein.

I've been getting through Konstantin Lopushanskiy's filmography and have loved everything I've seen so far. I have his newest film next on the queue after To Kill a Dragon by Mark Zakharov. I also recently watched Valhalla Rising and Gerald's Game. Both of which were tiresome and plodding for me. At least Valhalla Rising was pleasant to look at most of the time.

I think VR is one of the greatest of all time. Just a completely brutal film.

Something about the lack of character development made the brutality seem underwhelming. Bone Tomahawk's brutality for instance felt much more powerful because of emotional investment and the subtlety of the rest of the film. When i watch these newer films i cannot help but find the ultraviolence boring. Maybe i have nostalgia-glasses on but something about the stylized overproduced scenes of violence don't stick with me.

Two episodes into the new Netflix show you Mindhunter. Enjoying it so far. David Fincher and serial killers obviously brings high hopes, if this reaches anywhere near the level of Zodiac I'll be impressed.

I'd say there's actually considerable depth to Valhalla Rising. On the flipside, I didn't like Bone Tomahawk so maybe I missed something there.

Valhalla rising definitely has an intensity to it, despite  lack of characterisation-assumed characters were archetypes here, the one eyed main being odin/heathenism.

I'll be watching the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre tonight. Somehow I had never got around to watching it. I think I've only seen one of the sequels/spin-offs/remakes when i was a child and never really got into it as a name. This is long overdue.

it's not old, it's the new film from the guy who made bone tomahawk, and it's not pastiche although the poster is.

looking forward to his next movie too, Dragged Across Concrete
