  1. nadnab's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  2. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    3.7 stars. A slow-burning yet incisive investigation into how trauma can confuse space with place and past with present. Not an easy film to love, but an easy film to admire. Provocative in the way it sets anarcho-primitivism against neoliberalism. I need to convince my best friend to watch it to challenge his romantic belief in Charles Manson as having done nothing wrong, but also people who demonise him too readily

  3. Maria Wilton's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    3.5 - A nicely executed movie that takes you into the weird world of cults and, most importantly the people that partake in them.

  4. spasmolytic's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Recourant sans cesse à de subtiles interférences visuelles et sonores entre le présent et le passé, plaçant ainsi son héroïne dans une fragile et tangente apesanteur qui insidieusement invite le malaise et la confusion, le réalisateur parvient à composer un personnage éminemment borderline, soutenu par une exceptionnelle composition duelle d'Elizabeth Olsen, une actrice à suivre... www.cinefiches.com

  6. redux's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    The horror of being trapped in dependency, in a world without real choices. Great buildup, more than fitting touches of Polanski. The abrupt ending eloquently reframes the story as a plea for communication. (Side note: Olsen would make a great lead in a Debbie Harry biopic.)

  7. Pavel Dumitrescu's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  8. Savanna Ruedy's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Super confused by the ending. Throughout the movie it kept me interested but when it was over I felt so unsatisfied with the outcome that it was a disappointment. The acting is brilliant though. So is the cinematography.

  9. Thomas's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Disturbing, tense and eerie in a terrifyingly oppressive way. Elizabeth Olsen is intriguing and plays the role of a shattered young woman magnificently, a haunted vessel full of paranoia, frustration and dread.

  10. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Completely terrifying, with John Hawkesbury one of the scariest characters I have seen on film. A claustrophobic thriller which introduced me Elizabeth Olden and has much to say about the power of the cult.

  11. -REM-'s rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  12. auloel's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Psychological thriler. Yes.

  13. stanislavaki's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  14. James Mackin's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Elizabeth Olsen does a great job of someone who existed in a cult, and has trouble re-acclimating to society.

  15. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Too many "cult" films focus on propaganda as if there are keywords that cause all who listen to them to fall prostrate at a masochist's feet. MMMM rightly revolves around three elements instead: emotion, ambiguity, & their intersection. Durkin makes it work because, like Hawkes' character, you feel immediately as if you are in good hands, and then it messes with you in deep and frightening ways.

  16. Kerem Sadi Ekiz's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    You gotta respect the actress here

  17. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Wow, this just sends you down a rabbit hole of cult-induced paranoia and control. Fantastic performance from Elizabeth Olsen.

  18. Barış Akpınar's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Can't get ouf ot the factual loop.

  19. Arianekiks's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Elisabeth Olsen resplendit dans ce rôle. L'image du film est parfaite.

  20. Denis Strelchuk's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    favorite movie with Elizabeth Olsen

  21. Marcin Żuraw's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

  22. ara's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    a good (but unpleasant to watch) film that depicts dealing with trauma in a very real way

  23. thivai abhor's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    Ostensibly an exploration of the damage a small, controlling cult can wreck on the individual, but I would make the case that it is equally and importantly a parallel exploration (intentionally or unintentionally) of mainstream social strictures. Brilliant!

  24. angelicidea's rating of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene

    How does it feel to be stuck between two worlds?
