The Honeymoon Killers: Anyone seen it? I've been reading about it for years and I finally saw it. It's major. The Flat light, the steady, glacial pace, the mundane nature of it's violence. Every bit of underplaying heightens the horror. Highly recomended.

I've been meaning to see this for a long time. I'll have to look harder.

I watched this yesterday, and I loved it. The whole thing came together so nicely, even though the budget was extremely small. The writing and the acting were excellent, and the high contrast photography had a bizarre beauty to it. Great pulp story, but lifted beyond just basic entertainment. A cross between film noir, french new wave, and cinema verite that I'm glad has been fortunately saved from footnote status by the Criterion Collection release.
