I’m stuck on what to rate this. I loved the concept and pretty much every scene leading up to the last 15-20 minutes but then it started to die off for me. I think I expected and wanted more than I got. I’m glad it ended the way it did but I wanted more. I wanted more justice. I was honestly hoping she’d become a murderous vigilante and just erase everyone who wronged Nina but I didn’t necessarily get that and I’m not sure how to feel about it.
A couple tips:
If you’ve never seen The Bell Jar or read it: JUST READ THE GODDAMN BOOK!
If you’ve read it and want to see it in color like I do: Keep reading the book and wait a little longer, please.
If you’ve seen it but not read it: Dear god. Please execute all you think you know about The Bell Jar and just READ THE FUCKING BOOK!
If you’ve read and watched it: I am so sorry you…
“You are so much smaller than I remember.”
Holy shit. Not fully understanding what this movie was about, I had been avoiding it since it came out. I finally hunkered down to watch it and I wish I had sooner. Geralds Game shows you the mind of Jessie who has undergone trauma in her past from her father, while cuffed to the bed she is forced to remember memories she had suppressed to find a way to set herself free…
I’m so used to watching bad movies that I’m shocked that this was the second movie I’ve seen in a row that I absolutely loved. It had a little twist about half way through the movie that I didn’t see coming. I started this movie having no idea what it was about and I’m glad I did it that way. It kept me intrigued the whole way through and I just loved every minute of it.
