Don't Worry Darling

Don't Worry Darling ★★

sort of staggering how half-baked this is. you get the impression no one watched it all the way through before sending it off to theaters. it's full of Images and Visual Ideas (which, in fairness, is more than you can say for a lot of new releases) but none of them really add up to anything. a movie like this needs to either have way less plot and coast on the unsettling vibes, or way more plot so it's actually taut and coherent as a mystery. as it stands the film occupies a mushy middle ground, not smart enough to be smart and not vibey enough to be dumb. also every single performance is TERRIBLE except, shockingly, for harry styles, who flounders in his big shouting scenes but completely sells the charming sweetheart husband bits. he's not bad! maybe work with a real director next time.
