HBD to this lil stick of dynamite! . To celebrate, here's my Top 5 Juno Temple performances you should seek out asap: . 1. Afternoon Delight - Wildly underrated. Aside from Juno setting her scenes on fire, Kathryn Hahn is good that I could stomach Josh Radnor. . 2. Magic Magic - Sebastian Silva seemingly spent a year on ayahuasca writing parts for Michael Cera - both this and 'Crystal Fairy' are compellingly off-kilter trips, but Juno goes toe-to-toe with Cera in creating giant clouds of social discomfort. . 3. The Brass Teapot - Essentially an extended metaphor about the damage done in romantic relationships, think of this as a less histrionic 'Requiem for a Dream' now that I've fallen out with Darren Aronofsky. . 4. Killer Joe - Between this and 'Bug' it would seem to me that this Friedkin guy might really have something. . 5. Kaboom - Gregg Araki and Juno Temple. If that isn't enough for you, then I don't think we'd get along. - Pete . . . #top5 #movietop5 #cinematop5 #filmtop5 #ayahuasca #sebastiansilva

BUG (2006) Dir: William Friedkin A struggling divorced woman whose daughter has gone missing attempts to piece her life together, when she meets with a mysterious stranger. Desperate to make ends meet, Agnes works in a dead end bar attached to highway motel, where she lives. Making matters worst her ex husband is an abusive low life and has just been paroled. When one of Agnes's friends introduces her to Peter, her interest peaks as he is a quiet man who seemingly has good intentions. Time passes and Peter reveals he carries a government created parasite, one which the U.S. government infected him with. As the relationship between Agnes and Peter grows, the relenteless blood sucking insects begin to spread without a sign of stopping. Has Peter been subjected to a secret government experiment, or is he simply a paranoid schizophrenic who's now praying on Agnes's own mental illness? William Friedkin is a powerhouse of a director, and although he doesn't often make new films, the ones he does make are astounding. Here he returns to his horror roots in full form. Crafting a clever story which blurs the lines of horror, and mental illness. Every element involved from lighting, setting, and over-all tone works to create a gloomy hopeless atmosphere. Over the course of the film there is not a lot of violence, but there are many scenes which are absolutely cringe inducing. The least of which involves a man wrenching his own molars out with a pair of pliers. The result is a unique and very brutal film, even on a spiritual level, which resonates a deep psychological horror with viewers. Much like Friedkin's own The Exorcist, the horror here is impactful through realistic human characters being plunged into maddening circumstances. Although the storyline is very basic, the film hits the mark with a devistating accurancy. The open-ended storyline is both ingenius, and unsettling. #bug #williamfriedkin #horror #thriller #psychologicalhorror #creepy #mentalillness #horrorfan #00shorror #brutal #dusturbing #disturbingfilms #horrorfan #modernhorror #insecthorror #bughorror #creepycrawlies #violent

This is a type a film that, if not crafted and acted correctly, can easily become a silly, forgettable film. Fortunately, great direction by William Friedkin (the man behind The Exorcist and The French Connection) and great acting by Michael Shannon and Ashley Judd made this a very good film. The film does take it's time getting into the swing of things and setting up what's to come but once you start getting into the heat of the situation, you can't take your eyes off of what's happening. One aspect I really love, is the setting of the motel and how the lights are a bright florescent blue at night, just like bug zappers. It's the little things that make this film good and that's exactly what the film is about. When you see the type of people that are in psych wards or even homeless people on the street, it's almost impossible to really see where their coming from when they begin to act out of the ordinary. In this film, we get a good look at where some of these people might be coming from in their own mind . At least that's what I thought while watching this. I really commend the actors, they did a wonderful job and William Friedkin did a great job making this story come to life in a big way, in a little place. #horror #psychological #theexorcist #williamfriedkin #bugs #paranoia #theatre #lowbudget #motel #lights #blue #blood #disturbed

エクソシスト  The Exorcist 1973 憑依ホラー系の頂点 この映画の公開当時は自分は13歳 リンダ・ブレア演じるリーガンの設定と同じ歳 地元大阪のラジオでは浜村淳が「エクソシスト」がいかに怖く世間では大騒ぎしているかを声高に喚いていました でも公開当時は映画館で見てない  ビビッたんかバカにしてたのか  多分その両方で その後テレビ化されたのもVHS化されたやつもDVD化されたもんを見つつ 特に感想はなかった 2000年に公開されたディレクターズカット版 The Exorcist:The Version You've Never Seen を映画館に観に行き、そこで初めてよくできた映画だと感心しました 実に趣のある放尿シーンや リーガンのパンチラシーン オリジナル版ではカットされていたブリッジで階段かけ降り最後に血糊をドビャっと吐く名シーン、 これは何度見ても好きです  なぜオリジナル版ではカットされていたんでしょうか?ふざけてるよーに見えて 怖さ半減するからでしょうか? 降りてくるタイミングも絶妙なのに、 良いシーンなのに・・・・ とにかくリンダ・ブレアさんの頑張りは半端なもんじゃありませんし、作り手の方々の愛情と情熱と面白がり方がビシバシ伝わってくる名画です 真面目に丁寧に 悪魔祓いの方々のバックボーンやら治療の細かい描写とか地味な前ふりのありきのギミック 現代の特殊メイクの技術や特撮技術よりはかなりショボいレベルですが、熱気は100倍 押されます ソウルです魂です 名作です #エクソシスト  #TheExorcist  #Exorcist #オカルト映画 #マックスフォンシドー #MaxvonSydow #リンダブレア #LindaBlair #EllenBurstyn #WilliamFriedkin #1973  #憑依ホラー  #ホラー  #映画  #movie #horror #JasonMiller #supernaturalhorror #WilliamPeterBlatty

1. Dizem que o William Friedkin e o William Peter Blatty passavam tardes nesse Booeymonger discutindo o roteiro de O Exorcista. O sanduíche deles é excelente. O preço é muito student friendly. Dois sandubas + milkshake + coca com refil = $24 2. Visitei a "escaria da morte", onde foi filmada a morte do Padre Karras em O Exorcista. Hoje, é percurso de crossfiteiros. 3. Georgetown é muito linda, pqp. #georgetown #washingtondc #washington #dc #booeymonger #theexorcist #williamfriedkin #williampeterblatty

From #jamesbaldwin's #thedevilfindswork: " #theexorcist is not in the least concerned with damnation, an abysm far beyond the confines of its imagination, but with property, with safety, tax shelters, stocks and bonds, rising and falling markets, the continued invulnerability of a certain class of people, and the continued satisfaction of a certain history." This goes way beyond film criticism; this is brilliant literature that comes from a very intimate place and is only partly inspired by Hollywood and filmmaking. #filmcriticism #williamfriedkin #maxvonsydow #ellenburstyn

#tbt to Halloween night 2017 when i got to witness The Exorcist in all its glory, as it should be witnessed: on a huge screen in a full theater (thanks @alamodrafthousedc ). for a while i’d called it “more than just a horror film”, but that grossly undersells the genre - this movie is one of the quintessential horror films of its time (maybe of all time), and truly sticks with you in a way that most modern horror simply can’t. one could say the film’s allure is “possessing”. i can only hope to see it in theaters again, but until then i’ve got the tape to hold me over ;] #theexorcist #williampeterblatty #williamfriedkin #pazuzu #vhs 📿🖤🎟✨
