The Empty Man

The Empty Man ★★★

Really solid until the third act.

A lot of visual finesse, creepy concepts, and philosophical ambition, but it fails to coalesce into a satisfying conclusion.

If the point of your movie is that meaning cannot be created separately from reality, it doesn’t make all that much sense to me to end on an ambiguous note. And if the point is that reality doesn’t matter, well, that’s even worse.

Still, it actually has directorial vision and isn’t generic studio horror, and that I can appreciate.
