    This is such a great film. It certainly wont be for everyone due to the arty vibe but it’s a genuinely grotesque and beautiful experience. The first segment is especially disturbing.

    Thanks for yet another effed movie, admins! You’ve been adding new titles frequently, ur hard work is much appreciated!

    Producer: So what’s ur movie about?
    Director: It’s complicated…

    To keep it brief, there’s great artsy weird, like Der Todesking, then there’s garbage artsy weird, like anything by Marian Dora. I’d put this film somewhere in the middle, imo. Unique enough that I wouldn’t mind viewing another of this directors films.

    Thank you for posting this Admin.

    It was too artsy-fartsy for me to sit through the whole thing. Some films with micro-budgets can bring a raw power to horror/drama films. This was NOT one of them.

    Still, the parts I watched were not totally without merit. I did like the idea of spoken word put to film. Some of the film maker’s spoken/written thoughts or musings are interesting and some even strike deep, but there is no follow up to any one thought, so the randomness never gave me traction to dig deeper. After brief bits of drama-queen level self pity, became bored and forwarded to another part.

    I would like to contrast this to Ari another film I saw on line this weekend, Aster’s Midsommer.

    This was a film of unspoken thoughts, ideas and visions. I am sure that I DID NOT understand the film in it’s entirety, yet I was transfixed by each and every sequence. The terror was in what was not said and what is not perceived by the eye in the first viewing. Your eyes and ears are being deceived by light and sound while your mind is receiving a nasty jolt that may not hit you for hours or days to come. There was gore, but it was used sparingly and with great effect in a way that will stay with you for a long time. Not only did I sit spellbound through the movie, but I can’t wait to watch again to see the connections I missed the first time.

    Sadly, I found Subconscious Cruelty to be two dimensional. I thought the ‘gore’ and visual cruelty was cheap, gratuitous and would only scare a five year old.

    Still, it is important to judge for yourself the value of each attempt to reach that spot in our beings that keeps us coming back for more scares, more gore, more divergent ideas.

    Thanks again admin.

      Just chiming in to say Midsommar was a dogshit movie, and I’m far from the only person who thought that. Wicker Man it ain’t

    Great movie with psychological views and nightmares about human existance… Why this scripts don´t get enough money to become good productions?
    I bet if we embrace our humanity as whole we shouldn´t have the painful questions in our society as the protagonist has.
    Keep the great job, we love your page! <3

    I dont really know what to say about this one except for the fact that it was the most bizzare film I have seen for a while. If this is art, then I am artless because I did not get what it was trying to say. On the other hand there was good gore and the soundtrack was quite nice. I am glad I watched it though as I was aware of the controversy around it.

    E.S. “I thought Midsommar was a dogshit movie…”

    Wow… brilliant.

      What’s also brilliant is going on and on about a recent movie u watched in the comment section of a different film that had nothing at all to do with it, lol. That’d b like me contrasting the gore in this film with that of hellraiser. Useless comparison kinda. Empty talk.

      Didn’t want to waste my time in a banter about a movie I didn’t like, but u got me I guess bro. Imo Midsommar was a dogshit movie mainly because it borrowed *heavily* from elements of Wicker Man. Kinda shocked it didn’t say ‘based on’ it in the credits (Asters other film, Hereditary, also borrowed elements from another spec series of horror films too, albeit not as blatant). Pretentious too w a ~2.5hr runtime it had no right to have. I actually originally viewed the directors cut which was 3hr:/

      Also, to say u didn’t understand Midsommar yet go on some rhetoric about it is kinda funny;) If u watch it again, look for the different symbols/runes throughout, the various paintings, the flower crown next to chics dead parents, etc. I also found the film totally predictable, because the tapestry shown in the very beginning literally shows u exactly what happens in the film, call it bad foreshadowing. Keep an eye out for those things. Like I said Wicker Man it ain’t, so if you’ve never seen that classic (NOT the pos remake), I’d encourage u to do so, to see what I mean. Personally I loathed Midsommar(many ppl either loved it or hated it, not much of an in-between it seemed like), but his first film Hereditary was much better I thought, however still not excellent, imo. However, the director has skill, in Midsommar the cinematography was great, acting was fine, the subtleties were a nice touch, etc. I just really didn’t like it mainly for the reasons I’ve mentioned, n a few others, but NOT because it was an amateur film. Grain of salt as they say tho;) Peace

    This movie is many miles better than “Angel’s Melancholy” because it knows exactly what it’s trying to be: shameless garbage meant to be viewed as an intense fever dream when you’re suffering from delirium. This film doesn’t waste any time when depicting its sadistic sexual debauchery and, like I said, this film knows that it’s trashy and exploitative, but its artsy vibe is interesting enough to carry its weight. Trying to logically interpret this movie would ruin the experience because it’s supposed to be ridiculous trash that makes little to no sense. The only two things I will say about this film is the second segment is kind of boring, even with the bleeding plants and the guy giving a blowjob to a knife, and the third segment was a little too on the nose with its anti-religious messages being force-fed to the audience. This is basically a Big Mac made with truffle oil and it’s one of my favorite movies ever.

    I’d like to submit my comment in the form of a poem:

    There is nudity
    In Subconscious Cruelty
    It is gory
    Without a story
    I can’t place blame in them
    Since they’re Canadian. –Autographed copies of my poem are available in the lobby.

    Very thought provoking. Brutal yet beautiful.
