TIME SHARE offers a lot for the eye and a whole lot of too-easy shit for those needing more. Obviously the original Big Con was selling the rubes on pie in the sky when they die. Well, our sputtering civilization has subsequently found better and braver ways to filch us. The stuff of odious time share dreams. Didn't help that I involuntarily imagined an alternative TIME SHARE starring Ben Stiller and John C. Reilly.
Beautifully shot and production designed slice of satire and black humour set within the well-heeled Mexican time-share community and the invisible workers propping up the industry on minimal a wage. Hofmann teases with a Lanthimos poker that's more accessible, less deadpan yet vibrant and bold as all hell. Top makes for the skewy theme track! 3.5 stars
