Great Movie If You Have an IQ above a Hundred...
18 May 2019 | by transientdreamsSee all my reviews

Sadly, many of the armchair "critics" who toss their opinions around about solid movies, and especially late-remakes are insidiously inept and often fairly illiterate. (and do forgive me if I add or omit some commas where they do, and don't belong). Often, they never watch the whole movie, but comment anyway. Usually negatively. IMDB should RAISE the standard of critiquing a movie by demanding at least 1,000 characters. They should also have a full time staff delete the damn fools who love to say "Worst movie ever". Idiots like this just waste valuable bandwidth and other people's time. Smarter people. The kind of people I hope I still am. Anyway, what also happens is that people tend to condemn movies like this that are very damn straightforward and in-your-face disturbing. Donald Southerland's performance was extremely disturbing and powerful. Been watching him for almost 50 years and I even wanted to dislike it because it was so intense at times. I don't look for reviews I might agree with, or those that might save me 90 minutes of my life. I look for balance in honest discernment based on the ability to think deeper than just a gut-reaction. As someone who specialized in a certain art-form years ago, I would always tell my students NEVER to judge their own work. Let it live and age. It will change every week, month, and especially over years. 'Judgement' is final in the mind and never allows the growth of a re-perception. 'Discernment' however, allows for a possible expansive evolution of thought, reevaluation of meaning, and especially 'inspiration' where many creative minds that have already closed might expect to find it least.
