Have they learned how to tell a story yet?

I suffered through Amer, and all the crappy pretentious short films included as a bonus on the Blu. I was watching one of those ABCs of Death anthologies, and before the film was even over I was "This crap must be by those Amer hacks". I was right. Never bothered with that Strange Colors of your Whatever flick they followed it up with. I get that they're influenced by the visuals of Italian filmmakers, but they never learned that the Italians also tried to tell a story too. Didn't always succeed, I'll give you that, but they tried. This due does not bother.

Well, it's already been reviewed by reputable sites (as shown in the trailer), so I doubt it's a retread of Amer.

AMER was on my radar for a long time, but I ended up seeing STRANGE COLOR first when it played at TIFF and while I pretty quickly "got" what they were doing, the experience was numbing after a while, and probably better suited to some high-minded venue like an art gallery where viewers could be forewarned that they weren't going to be watching an exercise in traditional storytelling, and something more akin to an installation. Still, for living up to its makers' rather obvious and abstract aims, I couldn't fault it too harshly (6/10). Thought AMER was just slightly better (7/10). I was tempted to see this new one at TIFF's Midnight program last year but took a pass, mainly because I figured it would be another retro-assault on the senses more likely appreciated when viewed alone, and based on that trailer it indeed looks like a collection of meticulous staged shots designed to evoke a very specific era and type of (comparatively mainstream) cinema, albeit with something in the ballpark of a plot. Maybe?

Just came back from this and it's definitely an ultra violent spaghetti western heist set in (maybe) modern times. fantastic visuals, surreal, etc., but not a great film. It's pretty damn good, though.

EDIT - Pace and tone-wise this is nothing like Amer.

I quickly saw that poster while I was scrolling to the top of the thread and thought, "Lara Croft killed Thanos?" I had to go back and look at it again.

Agreed.

I enjoyed the first 2/3rds of the film but felt the final act dragged a bit.
