    Quite frankly, though there’s a pervasive sense of foreboding in X, I would have been quite content for it to remain a dramatic comedy about making an arty dirty movie in 1979. The director’s perhaps foolish ambitions are mirrored in X itself, which has artful editing, lighting and points of view. Across the way from that sensuality is an old couple who, despite the wizened old lady’s appetites, isn’t getting any for health reasons. Having this be a dual role for Mia Goth doesn’t really pay off - it’s too prosthetic - but a case could be made for them being the same person essentially, one longing for the past, the other refusing the future. The middle of the film makes you wonder who in this ensemble cast will be the “slasher”, but though there’s a clever play on Psycho to initiate events, I was much less interested in the gory third act. Perhaps the monster is too sympathetic, perhaps the film jettisons too much of what made it interesting in favor of well-worn slasher mechanics. Whatever the case may be, it was just better when it was Boogie Nights or Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Be sure to make X-Men jokes when talking about this movie because A24 is also coming out with a movie called Men. I kid you not. Have we run out of movie titles yet? 4 months 2 weeks ago

    Has a really nice style of constantly revealing new information through a change of frame, pushing in or pulling back to reveal something that was there all along that alters the context of what you've just been looking at.
