Very good ideas then the film runs out of steam and has trouble finding an end. Excellent casting, The main actors are great === De très bonnes idées puis le film s'essouffle et a du mal a trouver une fin. Excellent casting, Les acteurs principaux sont formidables.
This was a great little surprise. 'May' seems fairly ahead of its time being a film that's basically a disturbed twist on the manic picie dream girl that populates indie films. May's character is basically an experiment in crossing the line between indie quirky weird and Norman Bates weird. And then there's Anna Farris as an illiterate lesbian veterinarian assistant. Everybody wins, A must for fans of genre.
Sviluppo psicologico di May fantastico, inconsapevolmente influenzato dalla società e visivamente interessante. La sua caduta nel baratro crea una malata empatia. Finale magnifico. La regia costruisce un racconto dai toni intimi che sfocia nell'horror di qualità. Il montaggio e il resto del comparto tecnico costruiscono scene curatissime e mai banali. Protagonista semplicemente fantastica e caratterizzata benissimo
A weirdly heartfelt character study of outsiderness and the deep emotional scars such social exclusions often leave. Angela Bettis gives a chillingly detached performance as the title character, fascinated by blood and her own eye deformity/ The eye has become connected with her own distorted view of the world and how it views her. The final descent into Oedipal enucleation is as emotive as it is grotesque.
Exceptionally disappointing given its cult status. Pretty much one big fan boy wet dream: Look, she has a lazy eye! She makes her own clothes! She's discovering her (bi!) sexuality! She's into gore! Just lame all around and handled without an ounce of inventiveness. Performances are fine from Bettis and Sisto, but the film's so tiresomely retrograde and Nineties, so without real terror, it's irksome.
