Tyger Tyger review – spaced-out apocalypse chic in pandemic thriller
Rebels planning to liberate life-saving drugs to fight a future infection get lost in their own listlessnessSometimes a film comes along that reminds you why you shouldn’t go to Coachella, Burning Man or any kind of rave-adjacent event filled with Gen Z kids or millennials.
