In the Vague Visages Writers’ Room on Facebook, freelancers were asked to comment about their favorite Halloween flicks.
“‘Hana-bi’ is a deeply personal labour of love made by an artist observing his own enigmatic nature from a variety of angles in an attempt to arrive at some clarifying epiphany.”
“The action hero has to be capable of vulnerability because it calls the outcome, however prescribed by genre conventions, into question.”
“Do we really need to see anything to be scared?”
“In both ‘T-Men’ and ‘Raw Deal,’ Alton and Mann take what is already a heightened genre and somehow intensify its formal qualities.”
“Either you love the squeaky rollercoaster or you’ve got no time for the squeaky rollercoaster. Welcome to the carnival.”
“With ‘Baby Driver,’ Wright delivers a delightful, mid-summer cinematic treat.”
