    This was in my queue forever. Overall, I found it to be a fun, pulpy romp.
    Really happy that Zahler is fighting the fight and making original modern genre cinema. Some of the most disturbing onscreen violence I've seen in quite some time.

    I think speeding up the pace would greatly help. But I also have to respect that this is clearly what Zahler wants... Brawl is 132 mins and Dragged Across Concrete is 159 mins. He likes his films on the long side.

    Finally saw it after all these years. Pretty much what I expected except for the backwoods Floridian locale. Fun stuff with very 80's opening credits. For Sean S. Cunningham completists.

    Also, Lori Loughlin. This was a pretty timely watch, wasn’t it?

    Watched it on Amazon Prime. Not sure who is responsible for the HD scan but looks good.

    What an accomplishment. One of my faves of the year.

    Please see this projected on film. It's worth it.

    PTA's cinematography should have received way more recognition this award's season.

    I really like this film. It's bold and beautiful. Color scheme and production design are top notch. Doesn't feel the need to answer every question.
    I hope this does well at the box office because Garland is trying something different here.

    Saw it on the big screen at the DGA in LA.
