Don't waste your time.
29 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

The only positive thing I can think to say about this film is in regards to the cinematography, which is absolutely stunning. Visually, The Neon Demon is a quite beautiful film... But unfortunately, that's all that really I enjoyed about it. The film seemed to pride itself on its symbolism, but never gave much substance plot-wise to make the symbolism mean anything at all. The Neon Demon really did have the potential to make a profound statement about beauty in our society, but it fell far too short to make any sort of lasting impression. As someone who was extremely excited to finally get to watch this movie, my expectations fell flat.
