Psychopaths don't get cooler than this
23 April 2017 | by jamesfriernSee all my reviews

Florence Pugh is magnificent in the lead role as a cool lady psychopath. And this is one of the best films I've seen this year. It's gripping from start to finish, there's just not even a little bit of fat in the production, every scene, every piece of dialogue is sparse but meaningful and the actors all carry it off with panache. The direction is flawless. i felt trapped in a Victorian drama with no escape. The camera work is wonderful, grainy and grim in the candle light of the mansion and you could feel the personality of the characters oozing into your pores from the close-ups. Its quite brilliant. Don't miss it.
