MAY [2002]

Director Lucky McKee's May is an unnerving, darkly humorous character study that slowly creeps under your skin with twisted delight and tragedy.
Angela Bettis is absolutely fantastic as the title character who blends vulnerability and frighteningly fucked up without ever missing a beat.  It's aided by some bizarrely suiting supporting performances, a quirky yet intoxicating soundtrack and delicately executed storytelling that unravels like the loose strands barely holding May's sanity together.  This unique little horror film sneaks up on you and leaves you in traumatized awe.

I think the thing which I like about May most and what attracted me so much to it in the first place is how much I relate with the titular character. It's a film which always sets my mind at ease but also leaves me gasping for breath. 5 ice cubes to rub on my nipples out of 5 from me.

It just so happens I have ice cubes in the shape of Doc's nipples you can use.

My third nipple got so cold it fell off.
It landed in my whiskey.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
