Vivarium (2020). I loved everything about this movie. Its brightly colored dread and claustrophobia. The surreal, anxiety inducing endless nature of Yonder; the psychological toll of being trapped in that suburban hell; and the mystery of the boy and what he is. I loved the emotional beats in the film as well.

I've watched this about 3 times(twice to show it to other people) and I love the choices that were made in who these two characters are and how much mystery to show and answer about the things that run this place. Just enough to tantalize and give depth.

That was a good one, though I did have to do an internet search on what was meant with its message.

You mean like how it represents the horror of the latest generations in regards to the dreams and burdens of the past generations? Like how we're all told to get married, to get the house with a white picket fence, and we're expected to work to pay it off(you can't get out, you can't get free) until you die? And how you're told to have children, that's what you're "supposed" to do; but Millennials view this as a creepy burden just hoisted upon them, the kid growing up a stranger to them, demanding and parasitic?

Or do you mean the meaning behind vivarium and the brood parasite nature of cuckoos and Martin?

Yes, I had to search that too. I mostly was trying to answer the question about Martin when I was looking stuff about it.

Another one I really enjoyed was Deep Dark (2015).

Quote:A failed sculptor discovers a strange, talking hole in the wall. It has the power to fulfill his wildest dreams...and become his worst nightmare. (imdb)

It reminds me a bit of Velvet Buzzaw (2019) because of it's focus on the pop art scene. However, there was just something delightfully dark and surreal about Deep Dark. It addresses the relationship an artist can have with their Muse, the way it can get toxic and eat itself, the way that seeking validation and popularity can affect the Muse and the desire to create.
