Thoughts on Antibirth

I watched Antibirth in May, a horror movie starring Natasha Lyonne and Chloe Sevingy, where Lyonne plays a hardcore addict who mysteriously becomes pregnant without having sex, and has a lot of bizarre side effects. I really liked it a lot. Lyonne gave a really good performance as someone who was messed up on drugs and alcohol every day, living in a messy house, working sporadically, but was still a funny and charming person, it felt like she was being herself with her scratchy Jersey accent. The film was totally bonkers, and I liked how it made pregnancy into this exaggerated horror, with her increasingly expanding belly, her swollen feet, and was totally taken over by this unknown creature.

I would watch this film again to further understand its weirdness, plus I just really liked Lyonne's character and would want to revisit her again.
