    A spite bottle filled with Neon-soaked madness. The Safdies know my kind of neo-SleazeCore. And having grown up at Adventureland, they nailed its inner creep.

    Seemingly more “simple” than Raimi’s usual spook-a-blasts and Splatterfests but that’s what makes it so special. It’s him NOT relying on his usual visual ticks and tricks but lean into story and character does this FARGO-esque decent into hell so much more effective. Sam has something to prove and i wonder if he would have gotten SPIDER-MAN if he didn’t show he could pull back a bit. One of the best of the 90’s and easily top 3 Raimi for me.

    ★★★★

    Late to the ball but so glad I got to see it. What a delightful, beautifully crafted piece of cinematic storytelling, especially the elliptical editing. How a movie this finely crafted from script to final print DOESN’T get nominated is frustrating, but in the end, it will live on and be loved for generations. Bravo, Greta.
