      great, this movie

      At the Cannes Film Festival in France, the high-profile "Neon Demon", when the film came out, the polarization of comments from all walks of life
      When I first reviewed this work, I felt that this work was promoted to Cannes nomination, which is a slight exaltation of it. Value, but in the second brush, I had a very different feeling
      . When I first tried it, I thought the only thing that caught my eye was the color change, but the director played the visual "surface" too much and...

      Dazzling visual art for the future

      Dane Refn once shocked Cannes with "Neon Demon", which received mixed reviews and caused a lot of controversy. At first glance, it feels like a strange horror film "The Wind Storm": thin characters and simple plot, set off by extremely dazzling visual design and weird soundtrack, of course, it is indeed influenced by it. After watching it, I was at a loss for words. I didn't know what to say. I only knew the life of a gorgeous model under the neon lights (and Keanu, the former savior...

      Not enough reviews

      6 points, 4 points for the story and characters, 2 points for the photography. This is really a very simple entertainment cannibalism story. With a beautiful appearance and the envy of everyone, Jesse entered the fashion industry for the first time, from ignorance to gradually being swallowed up. The characters are all stereotyped and symbolic. The two-hour movie tells a story that can be told clearly with only a micro-movie. The reason why this length of time can be filmed is all based on...

      9.0 Rewatch, I want to swear after reading it! The PTA of "Phantom Thread" wants to use the game posture to hide its designer essence in every possible way, but NWR can reveal its game spirit without scruples through design. Form is content! How to define "story", is it just a...

    Evaluation action

    The film incorporates a lot of horror elements. A lot of blood and chase plots have injected horror elements into the film. The film could have been filmed very cult, but the director could not control these elements completely, and constantly interspersed between the blunt plots and pieced it together. The chaos turned into a pot of porridge, and there was no imaginary audio-visual feast experience at all. For such a psychedelic film,...

    Movie quotes

    • Jesse: When I was a kid, I would sneak out to the roof at night; I thought the moon looked like a big round eye. And I would look up and I'd say, "Do you see me?". Ya know, I'd stay out there for hours. Sometimes I'd fall asleep, just dreaming.

      Dean: About what?

      Jesse: What I would be.

      Dean: What was that?

      Jesse: I could never figure it out.

    • Sarah: People see you, they notice. Do you know how lucky you are? I'm a ghost.

    • Sarah: All she really wants to know is, who are you fucking?

      Jesse: Sorry?
