Promise turned Boredom.
On researching this movie, I thought I would be in for a film lover's treat. Begotten features grainy black and white on what seems to be a square format with minimal noise and art film style features.
When I got into it, the first scene hooked me and I really thought that it would be promising and hold a lot of controversy. However, when things started to come to a boil after the opening scene, I really got bored. It struck me like a blow to the gut and I found myself wondering what I should do with my nails next as opposed to what would be going on next in the film. Begotten is essentially something that would have benefited more as a 30 min short as opposed to 1 hr 15 minutes of confusing nonsense. I really gave up with the characterisations and what was actually going on within the film, because it just got so difficult and pointless to care.
For something with such a promising storyline and concept, I was thoroughly disappointed with what I finally viewed and I'm not entirely sure that I'd recommend it to anyone, not even the biggest of horror and gore fans.
