Hypnotic
11 March 2004 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

The look of the film alone is worth the 90 minutes. The score is a masterpiece (where can I buy it?) Mary Stuart Masterson is a dream to behold. How is it possible I've never heard of this movie before? It's not for everybody, I agree. Slow paced, long silences, but the atmosphere is hypnotic. I bought the tape and sometimes I put it on, just to have it in the background. I can't pinpoint what it is, but there is something magic about this film. Unique. Like a western made by a child of Ingman Bergman. I don't want to spoil it for whoever sees it for the first time but there is a scene, a dinner in silence between the four leads just before the climax when a sudden wind storm comes to hurry the proceedings. It is wonderful!
