Is it clever or played too safe?
2 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will not be spoiling things for anyone but the question I asked at the conclusion of this film was doubled edged. Perhaps I'd better explain.

However you read this story it is very cleverly interwoven by the characters involved. We really don't know who is playing tricks with our minds or who is actually being totally honest because that is what the script demands. It is as much about our own doubts and fears as the player's in character doubts and fears. And don't the players do well? Brit Marling is a fine actor and writer. Here she plays a cult leader who is from, so she claims, the future, sent back to rescue members of the cult and take them to a safe place. In the meanwhile Peter (Denham) a young teacher, and Lorna (Vicius) a Hollywood director's daughter, set up an investigation to expose the fraud by infiltrating the cult. The film is set in ten chapters or steps. Each step has its own special message and the film is worth seeing twice to get to the heart of these.

I found this film deeply mysterious and questioning of value systems. In particular it is asking us to lose our conscious, critical nature which, so the cult claims, poisons us as do many things we indulge. Each time we see an opening to revealing whether Maggie (Marling) is fact or fiction, there is, almost immediately a doubt. Maggie in the meantime reveals little to set our minds at rest and yet, she infers so much, it is hard to doubt her story.

The plot is given several interesting twists and turns which only baffle us further, until, in the concluding moments whatever you believe is finally challenged and it is time to make up your mind.

I really enjoyed Marling's Another Earth and this, whilst so very different, still bears her quality hallmark.

Recommended for thoughtful people.
