  1. Loz Loory's rating of the film The Rehearsal

    I would never have guessed that this is based on Eleanor Catton's amazing novel. Book and film have entirely different styles, tones, and emphasis. James Rolleston makes a pleasantly watchable, yet frustratingly inarticulate lead. The plot is downright creepy, and the ending using the "First Follower" concept is a cop-out. They could have easily put together a performance about not doing their planned performance.

  2. Viginti_tres's rating of the film The Rehearsal

    As an adaptation it is troubling, relegating as it does the sexual elements of the story to sub-plot status and raising the sole male character to protagonist status. As an exploration of artistic youths it is troubling authentic. A compelling and messy mash of ideas that co-mingle and expand but never climax. The lack of clarity may bother some, but film as first draft seems somehow fitting given the title.

  3. Drew.'s rating of the film The Rehearsal

    There's a lot to unpack with this film, but I really loved it. Looking forward to seeing it again when it gets a release.
