incredible Film. Judge For Your Self
2 March 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First off to all the people saying they "hate" film either don't understand it or don't like these sorts of movies in which the audience doesn't get what it wants (see Funny Games) The reason i liked this movie and have rated it so highly is for numerous reasons. I also dislike random gore to replace dialog. But the only really violent scene is with the hammer and the librarian which to me showed how angry this character was getting at being reminded of something he didn't wanna recall. Remember how when Kiev comes up in any conversation there is a tense silence but also a understanding about what happened and what they did. Which brings me back to my initial point about people really not liking it, i think this is because we are not spoon fed the story and there's no bull-sh*t detailed explanation by the "bad guy" like all blockbusters. To me this film puts all the pieces there and you the viewer has to put it together. I have watched this film 4 times now and noticed very small bits of dialog that i missed and give more to clues to whats happening. I feel like everyone expects to have everything explained in detail or they complain. This film is extremely well directed and the tension both director and actors bring to the table makes this all the more eerie and u feel that at any moment anything could happen. There is also some unspoken tension about something very specific that seems to be left unsaid but u get the feeling their thinking about it all the time. There are so many layers to this film and personally i think the librarian and the hunchback have made some dislike the film but i think that is more to do with their dislike for ultra violence. this is a question of taste. Its clear to myself what it was about and what happened and as much as the final scene made me cringe and squint i thought it wad incredible and in a genre of its own. Give it 10 years and this will be a cult flick without a doubt.
