The new Ben Wheatley, who's a total Alamo fav. This one is like a vaguely sci-fi lord of the rings where Tom Hiddleston moves into a new skyscraper and the power goes out and a class struggle between the top floor residents and those below ensue.

It's pretty crazy. There's more than a little of Cronenberg's Shivers in there, without the weird under-the-skin monsters. Everyone kind of goes insane, but it's hard to tell if it's just a weird world or a normal world with weird people in it.

There's a new Portishead song in this. They cover Abba's "SOS." I really appreciated how the film new how awesome and rare it was for a new Portishead song to exist so the movie basically stops and have a 5-minute montage to let the audience listen to the song. It was great.

All in all, Wheatley definitely has a unique voice. I don't really know if I like it or not, but I respect that it's there.
