A Cure for Wellness (2016)

I understand the mediocre reviews of this film, but I really love it. Its an excellent remix of Gothic Horror tropes, beautifully shot, deliciously twisted. Barefoot waif on a castle wall? Check. Spooky remote sanatorium? Check. Wacky twists? Incest? Perverse eel-science? Check, check, check!

Walker (1987)

I was obsessed with Repo Man in High School and had been looking for a copy of this one for ages. And I was not disappointed! This movie is so strange and wonderful. The anachronisms (Coke bottles, the infamous helicopter finale) add a cutting critical edge to the movie – as it folds in the (at time of filming) contemporary Contra War in Nicaragua. The Alex Cox style punk ethos is bent into this quirky, quasi-historical, metaphorical, totally-mesmerizing, character study of colonial psychosis. The truth of an 1850s anti-hero with a White Savior Complex is hauntingly distilled in Ed Harris’s pitch perfect performance. Satire at its most poetic!
