“I’ve been lying since the second I got here. ”
This is a beguiling and utterly enthralling film. An intense, unflinchingly honest psychological drama. Black Bear refuses to give you a simple answer to its own mystery. Instead, it engulfs you in its feverish bizarre nightmare. Paradoxically, the more observed you are, the less attention you seem to command.
Audrey Plaza delivers a ferocious performance. From the first frame to the shockingly final image, it’s very impossible to take your eyes off her. A real tour de force.
