I will say that this movie is ridiculous, but I appreciate that a lot. There are some things that I can laugh about and that's how I enjoy the movie. Honestly, at first, I kinda disappointed with it. But, suprisingly, it grows on me. A lot. I can just watch the movie for the laugh because it's funny in its way. Yes, it's a whole different with 'A Girl Who Walks Home Alone at Night', but it's refreshing.
Amirpour may have lost half of her script somewhere, or got high while writing the second half, or got bored. the premise of a dystopian post apocalyptic desert where outcast and society rejects are purged away is very interesting and very in tone with our current world. but after the promising 45-50 minutes it is a trainwreck. this film is begging too much. look at me, I'm so quirky and weird. I'm a cult film. Not
I had higher expectations from Amirpour due to prior films, however in this one the plot kinda seems to fall flat. That being said, I did enjoy the element of facetious emphasis on spectacle, plus her really well done fucked-up-but-kinda-hot mise en scene surrounding her characters. I really wish the end wasn't so awkward, I was excited for this movie!~!
This is a hauntingly beautiful and hypnotic film with a very dirty sexy kind of vibe. Suki Waterhouse is a revelation here and this ensemble cast of character actors are brilliant. Ana Lily Amirpour proves here that she is one of the most unique and original talents to come out of the cinema in the last ten years.
Fairly well technically crafted and stylish with standout production design, but a story that amounts to a lackluster payoff to the severe detriment of everything preceding the end. Editing and scene pacing dragged everything out with no beat ever doing anything substantial to push the plot out of mundanity after halfway. Amirpour still has huge potential though, even with this minor misfire.
