May Movie Journal - Xanadon't (31 movies items)

" Video Store Rental Late Bloomer is a tale of loneliness and rage that's a little bit like Taxi Driver, a bit like Tetsuo, a little bit like Tod Browning's Freaks, and a lot unlike anything you've seen before. That much I can promise. I found it compelling and admirably original and ambitious. It may not hold your attention, and even if it does, it still may not "work" for you. But I think it's a rewarding enough watch for the cinematically adventurous. "
