Terror is the true territory of the horror film. Without terror, the horror film is merely a slideshow of repulsive imagery—all shock and no shiver.

Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is To the Wonder’s shadow, its doppelganger, its evil twin, and perhaps its better half. It’s Malick through the looking glass.
Magnolia is messy, grandiose, ostentatious, overambitious, and overwhelming—or, in the words of its auteur “it’s too fucking long...it’s all just too fucking ‘too.’” It also happens to be my favorite film.
For all his admissions that memory is spurious and structured by lack, filmmaker Chris Marker (La Jetée, Sans Soleil) still found something beautiful in “the moss of time.”
