Chevalier (2015)

While sailing a luxury yacht in the Aegean Sea, six men, associated with each other by work or family, decide to play a game of who is “the best in general.” The group’s composed of seemingly disparate yet wholly indistinguishable men - the only qualities identifying them are their jobs and strange array of quirks. However, they’re wholly equipped to judge each other from everything to their choice of sleeping trunks to their silver-shining techniques.

Ghost World (2001) - Blu-ray

Based on a 90s cult comic released in 2001, it was an eerily prescient look into the future, foretelling the rise of hipster culture and beautifully encapsulating the struggle of twenty-something Millennials in the 2010s before that struggle had ever begun. It’s a coming of age story focalized through two teenage girls that don't have sexual awakening at its’ center. It’s a movie that, like people, goes through cycles, and those who’ve loved it at one point in their lives may find that it gains and loses and regains relevance as they age, change, and grow.

Serial Mom (1994) - Blu-ray

In a way, the career of John Waters reflects the evolution of exploitation cinema itself. Starting out in the 1960s with black-and-white microbudget shorts that didn’t so much have narratives as they were a series of shocking, hallucinogenic set pieces, he moved on in the early 1970s to more coherent feature films that were still more shock than substance. In the latter part of the decade and early 80s, he reached a comfortable midpoint, releasing pictures that still retained a certain grindhouse quality while focusing more on conventional storytelling.

Night of the Comet (1984) #WiHM

I’m going to put this on the table right off the bat: I love Night of the Comet. It’s one of my favorite films, and this will not be an entirely objective review. It’s not a masterwork of cinematography like The Innocents, it doesn’t boast compelling dialogue or characterization like Hellraiser, and it’s too firmly entrenched in the pop culture of the age to be a timeless classic like some of the other films I’ve discussed here at CineDump.
