I kept watching and waiting for it to make sense. It never did. Don't waste your time.
It is best to watch this film without knowing anything about it, but let me say that it was the coldest film that I may have ever seen. Not fully understanding, I read and watched film analysts as they describe the meaning, much which comes from Greek mythology of Iphigenia. Without this additional knowledge, perhaps I would have given the film 3.5 stars. I try to give my reviews without doing post-viewing research, but in this case I delved deeper because I suspected I was not informed enough about the mythological basis.
Hmmm...a hapless/helpless individual is taken in by a family and--uh-oh--he/she is not what they seem! Death, destruction, craziness, chaos (or whatever) ensues. I'd seen this plot at least 2-3 times before, but ...okay. Decided I'd give this one a shot. BUT IT BETTER BE GOOD!
I also could have asked that it be faster paced. Like, from a crawl to a slow walk, even. Nope.
Said "goodbye" after 20 minutes in which nothing much really happened. Yeah, yeah, mood-building, visual texture and character development and all that. Very easy work for two stars here: Nicole Kidman (even easier than her--yawn--work in the new version of Beguiled) and Colin Ferrell.
Suffer from a little insomnia problem? This film's fer you.
this title is on netflix fyi
SVP lire les critiques mais surtout donnez-vous même pas la peine. C'est dommage pour les acteurs.
Weird movie but okay to watch maybe not for children.
This movie is out there. It's creepy and bizarre, and you never know where you stand in a good way. All the performances are solid. If like being challenged by movies, this is a great pick.
I know this guy is a cutting edge director and all, but c'mon. I think I deserve an apology for having wasted 2 hours on this thing. Good cast but hard to know if the acting is any good because of the suppressed delivery. Many parts of the movie are actually laugh-out-loud funny, which I'm sure was not the intent. Precious, cloistered storytelling. Wish I hadn't watched it.
I used to think the worst movie ever made was the French radical lesbian feminist short film "Thriller." This is now either tied for worst or actually the worst ever. If Lanthimos had added a subplot there would have been enough material for a one-hour TV cop show episode. Instead this dragged on for 121 minutes of mind-numbing nothingness. Lanthimos wrote, produced, directed and edited this waste of talented actors and money, which means it was a labor of love. However, one man's obsession is not always as marketable as a project with someone to act as counterbalance.
Boring, dumb movie with flat performances and a key question left unanswered!
