3.4 stars. A film about some bad people who are sad and tired of being bad and some other bad people who aren't and one child. This is Wheatley's blokey art-house cinema at its most rigorously constructed, but for all its narrative trappings is probably best approached as a genre piece. I am thankful that Jump's (?) interest in medieval magic was given fuller expression in 'Field in England', which I preferred.
Nihilistic nonsense without the choreographic horror of say, Alan Clark's Elephant which has a similarly seemingly-random killing spree but with more of a credo behind it. This is just plain nasty & pointless made worse by mumbled and indistinct dialogue, although as the characters are so crudely drawn it's probably not a great loss. To add further salt, it sadly captures much of the anonymity of modern urban Britain
Assez de voir des films hyper anxiogènes, voir traumatisant sans être prévenus à l'avance ! La fin est tout simplement monstrueuse, à fortiori lorsqu'on a un enfant, d'autant que le sens global du film m'a semble-t-il échappé. C'est donc mon dernier film sur Mubi, Je me désabonne à l'instant.
