The Mask Instrueret af Julian Roffman


The Mask is certainly not without its flaws. Transitions are at times harsh, the camera movements can be distractingly deliberate, and there are far too many point-of-view shots where secondary characters engage in wholly unnecessary direct-to-camera address. But as amusingly clumsy as the narrative segments are, the film’s exhortation to (finally) “put on the mask” brings about a conversely sophisticated experience of surrealist horror.

  • Renton47's rating of the film The Mask

    You could do wonders with a remake that suggests man's desire amounts to more than just wanting to kill women. In fact its a shame the non-dream aspect is so rote, it plateaus and rambles, the audience actually hanging out for a murder. All aboard for the 3D scenes then, perfect for disturbing stoners with its camera-barrelling and Aztecs and hand symbolism. Maybe its all a VR warning cry?
