    The Pyramid


    The Pyramid crumbles into an ancient Egyptian mess. Here's hoping Anubis doesn't measure my beating heart on the scales of the afterlife, because with what I'm about to say I don't think he'll approve.

"What on earth is going on?" laughed the friends in front of me. "That was hilarious!" chuckled the imprudent heterosexual lads as I was walking out. Rather infuriatingly, as with most cases of contemporary filmmaking, I yearned to instantly throw a rebuttal at their faces. "What did you expect?".

    Sure, A24 were excessively marketing this…
