Solid acting, but so darned slow
19 March 2018 | by somfSee all my reviews

I am one of those viewers that really relies on critics overall opinions when it comes to film. If a film is in the red category on metacritic, I stay away. It is rare that I disagree with the consensus on well reviewed films but this is one of those times. Not one character in the film had a shred of redeeming characteristics. In fact , Olivia Cooke's opening scene establishes her as way more despicable than anything she does throughout the film. The director employs some nice styles in the film but uses the same one several times with very long shots on a character that is doing nothing while something significant is happening off screen. I am reminded of Jim Jarmusch films in that way, only his thing was to kind of keep a shot on a character after the action had subsided . Those were ten and twenty second shots. The scenes in this film were a minute or two. Translation-slow and boring. Avoid this one other than to see Anton Yelchin for the last time, but his role was not a huge part of the film or at least not screen time wise.
