Bliss (2019) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Joe Begos
Starring: Dora Madison, Tru Collins, Rhys Wakefield
RATED: UR/REGION A/2:39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1
AVAILABLE FROM Dark Sky Films

Known for her dark and macabre artwork, painter Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison) is in a professional rut. Unable to finish her newest commissioned work, Dezzy looks to reignite her creative juices by letting loose — as in, taking every drug in sight and tearing through raucous house parties and heavy metal bars. After a few nights spent with her debauchery-loving friends Courtney (Tru Collins) and Ronnie (Rhys Wakefield), though, Dezzy notices changes within herself. On the positive side, she’s finally painting again, but she’s also developing a strange desire for blood. As someone who has never been able to control her vices in the first place, Dezzy is quickly and violently consumed by this bloodlust.

I’ve been impressed by everything that director Joe Begos has made and that continues after having seen his latest, Bliss. This is a movie that dives into the “fun” world of a painter that is on just about any drug you can think of and once her creativity dries up she heads for a new high and gets something she wasn’t planning on. What follows is a bloody and creative story that dies into new lore for a certain type of sub-genre but I don’t want to mention it by name because I don’t want to spoil anything. But if the full intent of this one was what I’m thinking it does cover into new ground there. If it isn’t, well, it’s still full of some nice gore and offers up something new regardless. It’s just a weird experience from start to finish but I’d not call that a bad thing at all in this case.

Dora Madison plays the lead here and I’m a little mixed on her here. She’s not a very likable or sympathetic character here that we spend time with, but then again a lot of that performance could be due to her just playing what she was asked to play. It can be hard sometimes to tell if she’s just not really being convincing at times or if she’s just playing it how it’s supposed to be played. None the less, it’s a trippy good time and it is one of the more creative movies I’ve seen this year. Joe Begos is on a small list of director’s that I always look forward to seeing what he will do next. Bliss is another very good film from him and I recommend it highly.
