Fascinating but frustrating failure
9 December 2020 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie which incredibly has gotten many of the elements of a great movie right. Odessa Young borders on mesmerizing as Charlotte , the cinematography , while on the dark side, is perfect, the atmosphere, the realistic portrayal of teens in a small town as high school comes to an end, all of it is perfection. The problem is, maybe inspired by "It Follows" but even less coherent, David Raboy has created a film that throws so many questions at you and answers none of them. With all he got right, this does not make for a satisfying movie watching experience. After watching it awhile I just knew none of it was going to be explained although a question is posed in the movie that may be the secret to whole thing. It really is a shame because the performances are excellent, the recreation of this time in a teenagers life are dead-on , the sound effects and soundtrack are used in ways that bring the movie up but what was this really about ? It's a shame that more film makers, maybe trying to get noticed for their "art" ,have decided to create these visually stunning movies that leave you wondering "what did I just watch ?"
