After director Martin Scorsese’s “Marvel movies can’t be called Cinema” comment in 2019, every time he praises a movie is particularly noteworthy.
Last year he thought Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ was a rare good film, and more recently expressed good feelings about Ti West’s low-budget horror film ‘Pearl’, saying such films are very rare at the moment.
‘Pearl’ is a prequel to the horror film ‘X’, with Mia Goth continuing in the lead role. Set in 1918, the story follows a girl named Pearl who wants to be a movie star but is trapped on a farm, where she slowly turns into a murderous demon.
After seeing the film, Martin said, “I was a bit mesmerized, and a bit anxious, and then restless, and I couldn’t even sleep. ti West’s film has an energy that is quite rare in cinema today, an energy that is driven by a pure love of cinema (Cinema). “
