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.
The movie is strange, layered and I liked the cinematography. I think it was a little hollywood pretentious and although quite cryptic sometimes a little too overbearing. Can't share a lot without spoiling and really do avoid spoilers for this as they will definitely ruin this movie. Visually a treat, and the actors do their parts. It has intense moments and if you are sensitive or have triggers then be careful. If you appreciate movies like the Sixth Sense, Devil's Advocate or slow burn supernatural thrillers you will like this. To love it you probably have to also support and appreciate the metaphors and subtext. This is very much a product of the Director's own beliefs and causes. That could be good or bad depending on what you bring to the table. It does not answer all the questions posed. It will get you thinking. I think it's always important to support movies that are not Hollywood standard to keep film vibrant.
Not for kids or the sensitive.
Visually a treat but light in extras.
