A sum less than its parts.
28 March 2021 | by cruelworldfilmsSee all my reviews

I'll start with the good: well scripted (v. Linklater-like conversational dialogue), well directed (hats off to Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli), beautiful cinematography (that'd give Lars Von Trier a run for his money).

Now for the bad: Poorly structured story, poorly paced and no suspense (so well accomplished in Gaspar Noe's "Irreversible" and David Slade's "Hard Candy"), pretentious, middle-class unsympathetic characters that makes it difficult to empathise with anyone when they're wagging their fingers at each other in self-righteousness. The sudden character switch of female-lead, Miriam, who, pre-rape catches her finger on a rabbit trap yet post-rape somehow knows how to dispose of dead bodies and has a go at being a vigilante for a second before having a panic attack.

Overall, I'm left holding a candle for 2 halves of 2 different films that would've worked so much better if they were separate features.
