A creepy and ambiguous film and one that requires a certain amount of patience. This isn’t fast-twitch filmmaking; it’s measured and nuanced in the manner of the eras it emulates. Reviews make much of the 2001 aesthetic, but I see an equal measure of Phase IV and even a hint of Logan’s Run. It hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and craft. Disturbing as hell–two scenes made me flinch–BTBR is one of the best horror films in recent memory.
