Dull, creepy and immobile, like its subject matter
12 September 2016 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

"Marie, the Doll" is a weird, quasi-art-house, quasi-horror movie. It's about a disturbing relationship between two dysfunctional people who each compliment the other's strangeness. But what does the movie think about their situation? Why was it deemed worthy of an almost two hour long movie? The movie doesn't exploit the situation for thrills or psychological exploration. It just shows it, leaves it as it is for about an hour and a quarter, and then provides a rushed conclusion I'm struggling to remember the details of.

Being left with a creepy relationship like the one at the centre of this movie - a guy who loves dolls falls for a girl who behaves like one - becomes pretty unpleasant when the movie does nothing with it. This can work with social problems that are portrayed realistically: the movie serves a purpose by informing you like a documentary. But I don't believe the situation at the heart of this movie is common enough to stand on its own, immobile, for almost two hours.
