Charlie McDowell संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 2017

MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Discovery

It's amazing how much stuff Charlie McDowell "borrowed" from The Leftovers: the mood, the soundtrack, even the jumpsuits... Plus: deploying the so-called Shyamalan's narrative formula was ineffective, if not counterproductive. And Jason Segel was the worst possible choice for lead character. The Discovery epitomizes the condition of contemporary American sci-fi, completely devoid of imagination, ideas, and brio.
