Promising Young Woman ★★★½

I admire the subtle ambition of this particular film...

However it was quite uneven in its pace and it left a taste in my mouth which presented its ambivalence to the fullest extent in the final minutes of the film; and there was a noticeable confusion as to what exactly Fennell was attempting to convey through Carey Mulligan’s (quite outstanding) performance and the conflicting vision of Bo Burnham’s character. 

The visual presentation was vibrant and suited the atmosphere quite well (especially a particular scene in a pharmacy), however there was a stagnancy of tone and the screenplay can be quite ham-fisted and ideologically driven, albeit charming more often than not.  

Certainly an enjoyable experience, however I may just find enough in the film so that I need not see it for a second time.

7/10
