Clicking on the you tube link - I had to watch a commercial to watch a commercial.

Anyway, looks cool. Cast is intriguing.

Ah! Mark Kermode loved this but said that it divided the room sharply at the festival where he saw it. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I suspect I’ll fall on Kermode’s side.

Can’t wait for this one. I’ve loved (or at least been somewhat mesmerized by) all of Ben Wheatley’s movies, and I’ve read and loved the Ballard novel at least twice.


What a great poster!
