Always down for a bad trip

‘’Creator, if you exist, blow us away. Blow us away like dust or pus. Or leave us in our rot. Destroy us all.’’
Masterpiece. As if a hellish painting of Jheronimus Bosch comes alive. Never have I ever been more sucked into a world this disgusting, gloomy and pessimistic. A world that won’t progress, where intellectuals are being punished, people can barely speak proper and where morals don’t exist.
The story is based on a book by the authors of…
‘’Well, I guess I’ll see you in another lifetime’’
Breathtaking psychological drama, without a doubt Glazers best. Beautiful longshots with an autumn looking color platte and a soundtrack by Wagner and Desplat creates this melancholic atmosphere.
The plot is deep, kinda philosophical but also absurd at the same time. There is some subtle humor in it, but it still remains a heavy subject being dark and sad. Also surprisingly there’s quite a lot of suspense, but fortunately Glazer is never tempted to cheap shocks and the plot unfolds very slowly. Kidman is amazing in this. Those grieving, questioning looks she gives us are hypnotically beautiful.
A movie that really wants to be batshit crazy, a meme but rather stays too tame to achieve that cult status.
Pretty good film. The acting is very good, both with Hoffman and Kathy Bates. The film starts very slowly and could have been a little faster. Now it has the impression of having too light a story. Otherwise, Hoffman does a good job of depicting the ex-convict's emotions. The plot brings a lot of potential to be very emotional but succeeds half in it, something like Buffalo 66 stays superior in that lane.
This is how you combine goth and swag
