The Eyes of My Mother Geregisseerd door Nicolas Pesce
This poised feature debut from Nicolas Pesce announces a director who blends arthouse with horror to unnerving, elegant effect… The film loses some of its cruel precision and restraint in a third act that goes all out for shock value. As a result, the picture ends up more conventional and less intriguing than its early promise suggested.

Ariel Loh provides an eerie electric score that feels unsettlingly disconnected from the action, and there are also songs by the great Portuguese fado singer Amália Rodrigues. And there’s an utterly unnerving performance at the center of it all: Kika Magalhaes embodies both distracted menace and a strange, other-worldly fragility. All in all, this is a compellingly strange film, and definitely the real thing, even if it’s finally not 100 percent my thing.

To really show that it’s serious, and not mere Midnight Movie junk, the violence is either kept outside the image or elided by jarringly casual jumps to the aftermath. When we briefly visit a middle-of-nowhere, very American dive bar, it’s like we’ve discovered what we thought was an alien planet was Earth all along. This is all according to plan. For his visually assured yet structurally sloppy directorial debut, Nicolas Pesce wants to keep us permanently and in every way off-balance.
