Within the next few weeks, I will be reviewing some of the most controversial, thought-provoking, and well-known cult classics in context of their social impact and the message they’re trying to send (if any).

These will range from the campy to the heartbreaking.  Below is a list of the first few movies being reviewed, check back tomorrow for the first one (“Kids”) and in the coming weeks for more!  I’m going to try to do one or two a week.  And please comment!  I’d love suggestions, and discussions about the movies being reviewed.  If it repulsed you, let me know.  If it changed your life, then definitely let me know.  Either way, I’d love to have a dialogue going about the films being discussed.

And now, in order, are the films being reviewed:

1) Kids

2) Salo, or 120 Days of Sodomy

3) Showgirls

4) The Doom Generation

5) Female Trouble

If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments!! I’m open to anything.
