Storyline

Lucy ([link=nm2539953)) is a buttoned-up, MUJI-clad translator who has been in Japan for five years and is desperate to blend in. Her reticent nature hides old scars. There's also the fact that people around her keep dying - accidentally or otherwise. After a street encounter with hot photographer Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), she quickly finds herself under his spell, despite all the warning signs. And the pot is stirred further when American nurse Lily (Riley Keough) - all blowzy sexual confidence and cultural naivety - arrives in town and Lucy experiences some frightening impulses. Wash Westmoreland has crafted a moody and intriguing update on 1980s psycho-sexual thrillers, shifting the emphasis onto the psychology of the female protagonist. Alicia Vikander is astonishing in a role that explores cultural fascination, belonging and obsession. Written by London Film Festival

One of Netflix's best
13 October 2019 | by budgiemegzSee all my reviews

#LFF2019 : An incredible look into a guilty mind, with incredible actor performance and cinematography. This film was dark in all the right places, and really captured the enigma of Lucy and her descent into chaos. The soundtrack in combination with the incredible production design all come together to create an immersive experience of 80s Tokyo, along with actor performance creating believable and complex characters (Alicia Vikander is a standout with her learning fluent Japanese for the role). All in all a masterpiece.
