Melancholia meets Requiem for a Dream with a heavy dose of anything Terrence Malick. The end product of that combination is something Woodshock could attest to. Kirsten Dunst stars in this trippy thriller about a woman on stuck in an altered state of emotional struggle and potent drug effect. The female director duo of Kate and Laura Mulleavy surely must have idolized Malick’s style and for unique visual flare and jagged storytelling. This is a fairly confusing movie that’s hard to make logic of, but that’s part of the allure and premise of it. You’re not supposed to have it figured out. The story is linked heavily into the characters state of mind. It’s an interesting take. Woodshock is a very stylistic artsy movie that sway you with the visuals more than the story. It’s a different kind of movie that’s worth checking.

Woodshock is out now on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
