When I was younger, I used to eat up anything on a mythological level - not only Greek, Norse, and Roman, but also folk tales from countries like Japan. This felt like a visualization to me of one of those folk tales which were often very very gory. My only wish is that I had watched this on Halloween this year .

Blow Out would be pretty sweet though I'd welcome Blow-Up even more.

I'm preparing to take the plunge on the B&N Criterion sale but I'm scrambling to watch a few more before to make sure I don't miss anything worth purchasing - so far I'm pretty certain I'm gonna be picking up The 400 Blows (already own this on Criterion DVD but oh well), Antichrist, House, Paris, Texas, and Vivre sa Vie at the very least. I was going to blind buy House either way but now having actually seen it, it's the #1 Criterion blu-ray I currently want.
