CLOVERFIELD is an experience. Wild, insane, totally absurd, and completely incredible. I loved this film; it's the true product of a new filmmaking generation, and wham-bam action aside, it acts as a sly comment on the twenty-something culture in today's society. I am not suggesting that CLOVERFIELD is some deep, thoughtful examination of the modern psyche or anything like that; it's just better and richer than some people have suggested. But for what it wants to do, which is to throw the viewer directly into ground zero during a truly epic battle with a giant monster, well, this movie totally nails it. My full review will be up soon. A crazy, crazy flick.
