lachyasTumblr's The Purge. Not sure what to make of the film's political message but boy oh boy is this an insanely entertaining and at times shocking ride. Deftly made with the home invasion long take a particular highlight; you just need to stay with it for the first forty minutes or so because once it gets going it doesn't let up. 4 years 3 months ago

SiskoidAssassination Nation is part The Crucible, part Eighth Grade, part The Purge, and a touch of Kill Bill and lots of style. A feminist tract for our times, technologically and politically savvy, embracing its status as an exploitation flick, but having something to say about that exploitation. When a hacker starts leaking what's on everyone's phones in Salem, it brings on a modern witch trial where misogyny manifests (among other ways) as a victimization of the victim, as the film demands we question whether what triggers the "good people of Salem" is actually bad. If the movie takes it to the insane extremes of the horror and revenge genres, it nevertheless feels like it's not THAT far from reality. This is the Western World as a powder keg where everyone is holding a match (their phones), and though the fempocalypse that's in the offing pushes us into film fantasy, it's still too close to our world for comfort. Subtle, it's not. It's aggressive and it's in your face and that's just what society's doctor ordered. 4 years 6 months ago
