What are people saying?

  • Jason's rating of the film Mary Shelley

    Extremely curious that Haifaa Al-Mansour would chose to follow up WADJDA w/ ... this. Ummm. Well, there is no doubt that DP David Ungaro is on top of his game here. However, nothing can save a movie that puts dialogue from a screenplay this resoundingly bad in the mouths of such ridiculous people. One can only hope that the casting was a result of what Hitchcock was wont to derisively call "front office decisions."
