SPOILERS HEREIN!



In my opinion, the ending to High Tension posits sexual deviancy as a stand-in for violent psychosis. A lot of slasher movies present sexual immorality as the lead-in for victimiza ...

I think we generally agree on The Overture, but there's a difference between artistic traditions and witless cliche.

I trust I'll see you at some of the MIFF screenings, although I too will only be able to attend a select few. I'll definitely also go to the Angelopolous screening.
