Man, I was hooked when it started.  Somewhere around Ep 3 or 4, though, it started coming apart for me.  By the end I was completely disengaged and disappointed.  Despite my love for Phoebe.

Yeah, this show is the real deal. It's funny, complex, weirdly touching, and has a handful of some of the most intense suspense scenes I've ever seen on television.

First Trailer dropped --

Almost looks like a new elevation of the old tropes, can only really relate it to Cronenberg's Fly remake in my mind right now.... Expecting similar images and concepts but presented in an all new light. Possibly more body horror it seems like? Dig it, Luca is leaning into the Gothic Intrigue.

4 those not spoilerphobic, bandage up:

I caught a two part BBC documentary about Roth a couple of years ago when he announced he was through with writing. I quickly found myself fascinated by him, and read as much as I could about him. Despite this, I haven’t read any of his novels. I guess his oeuvre seemed intimidating to me; there was no clear point of entry.

So, now the man is gone - where should I start?

The Witch is the real deal. That a rookie director could produce a movie like this is astounding. This movie does a lot of amazing things while remaining utterly compelling. Robert Eggers is my new PTA: The director who's movies I must see.
The 2018 Xixax Awards / Re: Best Film

I didn't participate in the award nominations because there were really no movies I saw that blew me away this this year. I didn't think any of them deserved to be called Best anything -- sadly, including The Phantom Thread.

Yeah, this is the year that I really came to terms with the fact that PTA is no longer making the type of movies that made me love his movies. The best thing thing I saw last year was on TV -- Twin Peaks .
