The Neon Demon (2016)
Stop reading reviews and see for yourself.
Morbid. Worth it. The character of the make-up artist surprisingly took center-stage for me. In the end, the pretty girl is nothing but a reason. It's the make-up girl that somehow drives the action, takes decisions, albeit very disturbing ones. Everything is superficial. Who cares. Watch the movie.
When ignoring the storyline, it's a beautiful shot that's for sure.
Digression: In Dostoevsky's "The Idiot", the protagonist Mishkin observes that a certain type of beauty can save the world. That observation rang false then, and it rang falser yet after watching The Neon Demon. The point of the movie seems to be that otherworldly beauty morphs us into animals - we regress to some kind of primordial state where false concepts of morality have evaporated under the pressure of the flesh. I don't argue. Anyway, don't take this comment too personally, I've had a couple glasses ;)
