When Cthulhu calls, he calls collect.
This was a polarizing film for me. There is definitely a sharp, philosophical thriller here buried beneath derivative dialogue and ponderous plotting. Moments in the film hit incredibly hard while others droop into uninspired cliché. I found myself drifting from hyperfocused intrigue to wanting to fall asleep. Half an hour could have easily been cut and I wanted the prologue to extend to be the entire film. On a technical standpoint, everything is polished and tight. The cinematography ranges from…
"Everything means something else."
You Won't Be Alone is a bittersweet and lonesome journey of self discovery, humanity, community and otherness. A beautifully shot and preformed movie that is often as joyous as it is gruesome. Every honest facet of humanity is on full display here.
