"Bodies Bodies Bodies (Halina Reijn, 2022)"


          

A murder mystery for Gen Z. This shit is funny as fuck.

What I love about this are the unique qualities it brings to the table. From opening to closing frame, this is brimming with an energy that escalates for reasons you'll find out.

I absolutely love that aside from one person, everyone in this is unlikable.

Thought it was fine. Really hums in 1-2 scenes, rest of it is a lot of skulking in the dark and repetition of "you did it, no you did it"-- which I get is a necessity in a lower budget Ten Little Indians kind of premise like this, but it's just not fully for me. Rachel Sennott's the MVP imo.

it felt longer than the hour and a half plus runtime.

there was one exchange towards the end that was kinda cringey. i cant even remember the actual dialogue but it was stuffed with a bunch of gen z buzzwords like enablist, ally, etc. i couldnt tell if they were being intentionally heavy handed or what.

I stayed away from this movie because I generally don't like horror comedies (I'm pretty sure I've never laughed at a death in a movie in my life).

But this was really a thriller with lots of humor and had me guessing all the way to the end of the movie.

I feel like 10 years ago this would have been a bigger celebrated movie.
