31 Days of Halloween #19
Santa Sangre Woo-hoo! more art-house horror. Surrealist mastermind Jodorowski delivers his Fellini inspired version of Psycho as only he could and its absolutely bonkers. Filled with plenty of Jodorowski trademarks this film weaves between horror story and poetry. Sometimes silly sometimes horrific, always entertaining Jodorowski has no problem directing scenes with his emotions and instincts. Sometimes indecipherable but always deliberate this actually feels more straightforward compared to his other big surrealist masterpieces El Topo and The Holy Mountain. Truly one of the most unique films that can count itself among the horror genre even though the film can easily be considered beyond categorization. At its heart is the Psycho inspired mother/son relationship murder/revenge story about an armless mother making her son act as her hands as he commits murders for her. Mystical, magical, spiritual and most importantly weird as fuck. An absolute blast and wild fucking ride.
Available on Amazon Prime
American Beauty (1999)
Directed by Sam Mendes
Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) is a gainfully employed suburban husband and father. Fed up with his boring, stagnant existence, he quits his job and decides to reinvent himself as a pot-smoking, responsibility-shirking teenager. What follows is at once cynical, hysterical, and, eventually, tragically uplifting.
