Pretentious and contrived
27 October 2015 | by glyptotequeSee all my reviews

Somebody clearly wants to emulate Lynch, this giant sleeping-pill of a film literally shoves it in your face. Too bad then that this utterly pretentious and contrived piece of junk is a billion light-years away of achieving that magnificent and creepy surrealism Lynch is known for. What did this hack of a director think? That making a movie in black & white, setting the pace to snail-mode, making it as killingly minimalist as possible, and last but not least, having a Laura Dern-lookalike as the female lead, somehow would turn it all into a masterpiece of Lynchian dimensions? Most likely.

Everything about this movie feels forced and unnatural and I was bored to tears watching it, it's essentially nothing pretending to be something. If you have any sense at all, don't listen to the rave reviews this has got, instead go and watch Eraserhead again. Now that is truly surreal and existential dread for you!
