Am I being trolled? (a rather serious review)
9 August 2020 | by kuarinofuSee all my reviews

Cause this film really felt like I'm being trolled. But I am going to approach this film seriously because in some way I can relate.

The film had a promising start, and I was interested in what this film is going to be about. Was it going to be about a destructive depression? Maybe about how this state affects the main lead or her closest ones? Well, no.

The film is just a mess of half-baked philosophical ideas that go nowhere and a bunch of "you know what would've looked cool" scenes with good music. I wouldn't call it artsy since they seemed to have a basic understanding of what they wanted to show and I understand that (it's easy to understand some of the basic allegories). Although some scenes are intentionally stretched out to get the film to full feature-length. And don't get baited on the reviews that say that this film is deep, I have seen internet videos and conversations on the themes of the film that were much more deep and compelling.

The film had no ending, it seems that for some reason (maybe writing themselves into a corner) the film had a different ending than whatever was planned since there were lots of weird cuts and the ending felt very disconnected. So, I am assuming they had no idea how to finish this or the ending was re-shot.

The idea of contagious suicidal thoughts did not impress me at all since I've seen a small film called Pontypool (2008) and it was great.

The tones of mortality and the meaningless efforts of trying to fill your life with anything you deem (or convince yourself) important are very mishandled. I mean, you can achieve a better story with the core idea of "anesthesia of life" that people administer onto themselves, like career, children, hobbies, anything on that matter. The writing was just too unrefined and raw, the dialogue and the delivery were so bizarre and out of place that I seriously thought I am being trolled. The script could've used more work. As nonsensical as it sounds, the film had real potential.

I know my depression, I had thoughts of me dying tomorrow many times, this is just not it, this is not how this works. This is not smart writing. Futility and mortality are handled so much better if you project those through a well-written character, the best example I can think of is Rust Cohle from True Detective (Season 1).

The film was short, not intentionally, but because they didn't know how to write the ideas into the story.

I rated this film 3 stars for some visuals and ideas, but it ultimately disappointed me because I saw the potential in it. They should've spent more time and effort on this.

I cannot recommend this to general audiences or horror fans, because this is not a good psychological thriller or horror, and this is not a good film altogether. I'm sorry.
