Interesting but flawed
19 November 2020 | by mister_batemanSee all my reviews

I would consider many parts of this movie "good" from an artistic perspective, but unfortunately it's overall too flawed to say I liked it. It is well acted and directed and the story is interesting and quite intense and suspenseful at times, but then it's also unrealistic and implausible, making it feel kind of weird and surreal throughout. Like a bad dream or something. It doesn't help that there are pretty much no likeable characters except maybe the main girl. It's bleak as hell so it's not a very enjoyable experience, emotionally. But I would still say that it's worth checking out and judging for yourself.
