Shortly after its release, West announced Pearl, a prequel that he secretly shot back-to-back with X. With Goth in the titular role, Pearl explored her murderous origins on her family’s farm in 1918. Pearl also garnered a positive reception, with Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese admitting that he “couldn’t stop watching” despite being equally enthralled and disturbed.
