the movie ever
Pretty enjoyable movie. I found the disturbing videos hard to watch; had to skip at those scenes. But the ending is so stupid because there's no clear answer. Its not creative or layered, its just elaborate and hack tbh. The ending ruins an otherwise entertaining movie.
Not my favorite Joko Anwar movie but still worth a watch.
Psychological thriller with lots of disturbing imagery and a deliberately confusing story - reminds me of Blue Velvet or Naked Lunch, and definitely delivers if that is your thing. Content warnings for abortion, rape, and child abuse.
Forbidden Door i thought was going to watch a five star classic AEW Wrestling event as always. Now to the movie, the lead actor was great. The movie leaves you with questions. A very good watch.
