Direction, Cinematography, Plot, and Box Office are fine indications, but if the viewer is not fully engaged and reacting to your creation then none of … Continue reading Twitter Rant: 1/21/18
This is the second time that I have seen The Neon Demon and I was in no way prepared to enjoy this at all. As a matter of fact, I chose to review this movie because I wanted to tear off whatever flesh was stilling clinging to the carcass of this box office bomb while … Continue reading Written for Class – The Neon Demon: Analysis and Review
