Earthquake Bird (2019)
Very convincing, but not criminological as expected
I found the movie because of Ridley Scott is the producer and the fact that Alicia Vikander plays the lead role has increasingly aroused my interest. I also didn't know until after the movie (through google research) that it was a movie adaptation of an award-winning erotic novel. Maybe the people who didn't give less than 6 stars disturbed themselves because there is not much eroticism in the film. It's more of a psychological thriller, which doesn't shock you and also doesn't surprise you at the end. But the director doesn't want to surprise with the end of the film, he wants to make the way to the end as intense, captivating and atmospheric as possible. The atmosphere of the film through it's late 80's japanese look (cinematographer is Chung Chung-hoon known for "Oldboy" and "It") and mysterious music (by Oscar winning Trio Claudia Sarne, Leopold und Atticus Ross "The Social Network"), as well as the acting of (a japanese speaking) Alicia Vikander are very convincing and refreshing in one of the best Netflix movies so far.
