Expiring on MUBI (yes, it’s on Shudder too) so I fired it up and got immersed in it. Like more than I did at FF. I think it plays a little better on the small screen. Shit, this was shot on 35mm & 16mm! No wonder it looks so damn good.
I did recall something that drove me nuts on that first viewing: there’s a kid wearing a KISS shirt for their album “Creatures of the Night” which was released in 1982. The movie takes place in 1979.
Yeah it’s a small thing but when you know it, it stands out like a sore thumb. And you can’t forget it.
Love Kate Moran as Lois. She’s done a few other Yann films. Wonder if I can find those. Tbh the end credits scene is better than the film (but it takes the entire film to make that credit scene so good).
