A Grand Finale

Look, on a very visceral level, I did enjoy The Guise of Guy-Stalker. It was bold to end the entire Space Battles saga, all eight film, on a more tacit depiction of one man’s obsession with a legendary filmmaker, and all the disguises he dons to get close to him after the multiple restraining orders. …

And the thing has zero concern for road rules, carving through front yards, ovals and even waterways like it’s …
