Review: Don't Drink the Water—Gore Verbinski's "A Cure for Wellness"

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Jason Isaacs as Dr. Volmer in A Cure for WellnessIt starts with a whispered melody. It will send frissons of familiarity, of a kind of upsetting longing for clarity. You know that song the odd English girl is singing, but you can't place it. Neither can Lockhart (Dane DeHaan, who they might have called Lockjaw, as he can barely seem to spit his words out), which is what draws him into the guts of a mystery. And it draws the film into a slithering spiral, compels us to observe an autopsy of modern horror. What half-remembered giallo fugue is Gore Verbinski spooning up for us like medicine, pinioned to our chairs like one of the zombie patients in the film’s sinister clinic? A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film. »

Gore Verbinski on Making the Reverse ‘Sleeping Beauty’ With ‘A Cure for Wellness’

15 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Gore Verbinski first attracted wide attention for directing The Ring – one of the few examples of a successful foreign horror remake. Now, after 15 years of directing blockbusters (and also The Weather Man), he’s returned to the stage of psychological thrillers with A Cure for Wellness, opening this weekend.  We spoke with the director about the recurring motifs in his films, and particularly his latest, the design of the locations, how the film acts as a reverse Sleeping Beauty, and more.

The Film Stage: Water is a recurring motif or element in a lot of your films.

Gore Verbinski: Yeah, you’re referring to Rango and The Ring and Pirates… god knows what else. That is strange, isn’t it? It’s a beautiful metaphor for so many things — for birth and catharsis and drowning and baptism and purification. In A Cure for Wellness, it’s the idea that Volmer [Jason Isaac’s character] is diagnosing modern man, »

A Cure For Wellness Promos Ring In A Creepy New Year

3 January 2017 12:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s a brand new year, and Fox’s A Cure For Wellness is ready to get freaky with it. In a collection of five New Year’s Day-themed promos, the horror film from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean 1-3, Rango) promises an unsettling, demented psychological scarefest to ring in 2017 with.

Focused on how “we promise to improve ourselves, but we never do” with each new year, the first new promo demands that you “stop treating the symptom” and “take the cure” through these visually-maddening looks into this disturbing new mind-trip. The other four teasers focus on our failure to lose weight, “relief from pain relief,” weight loss again and failed resolutions in general.

If you’ve kept up with the marketing, these promos don’t provide anything new. Still, it’s a nifty, inspired way to highlight the recently passed holiday, and another chance to delve into this maddening new film, »
