A young woman (Jennifer Lawrence) descends into madness and paranoia as her remote country mansion is invaded by a series of unwelcome guests -- all of whom seem to have a mysterious connection to her husband (Javier Bardem), a poet struggling with writer's block. Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Brian Gleeson, and Domhnall Gleeson co-star. Written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan).~Jack Rodgers
One of the best one time watches I’ve ever owned..
Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.
This movie is an outright Masterpiece. I don’t know if it is because I went to Catholic school growing, but this was one of the most POWERFUL films I have seen and the framing of home invasion makes it that much scarier. I definitely recommend this movie but I can’t promise you would be able to watching more than once in single year. I still need a breather in 2020.
This movie I found to be a bit strange. Some of it was confusing. I usually like supernatural movies, but this had a very odd vibe from beginning to end. The acting was okay, but Jennifer has done better. I feel she was not the best in this movie. In fact, none of the other actors were all that great, Perhaps this is the fault of the director.
This movie is like a nightmare for introverts, it is a deeply disturbing but extremely unique film that I think should get more attention. Jennifer Lawrence's character is the focus of the film and she plays the part great. Again this movie isn't for everyone but for those who like something different it's well made.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was a blind buy for me thinking it was part of the horror genre. There is definitely scary elements, but no jump scares. More of a thrill. This movie has a very powerful message. I recommend watching it
You'll either love or hate this movie but nonetheless the picture quality on this 4k transfer is really good; shot on film with a 2k digital intermediate so there is mild grain throughout. Sound was the highlight of this film. Although a musical score was absent all channels were taken advantage of and sound was placed precisely. Definitely recommend if you can take advantage of Dolby Atmos. Go into this picture with no expectations and you might leave optimistically unsettled.
