Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

My Letterboxd review of Berberian Sound Studio

Reblogged from my Letterboxd list:

If one must, this can be summarised as both a film about the mechanics of filmmaking (the artistry behind the bits we don’t notice precisely because they work so well) and of the mental breakdown of a homely man, an expert in his field, who’s unable to handle the new environment – both physical, being in a foreign land, and artistically, being employed to work on a limit-pushing giallo-esque horror flick – he’s been thrust into. But Berberian Sound Studio is so much more than the sum of those parts, and precisely because of my summary above, it must be experienced to understand why it’s so enthralling.
