It had the excitement of a thriller but it makes you wonder about the things in your head. I always just accepted that whatever I'm thinking are my thoughts, but maybe they're not. I thought the Direction and Music especially brilliant, as well as loving the fact that it was shot in and around Brighton, my home town. I found this very gripping. The preposterous premise presented here of mind control and the reprogramming of the human subconscious is nothing more than mindless mealy-mouthed manure that is both atrociously articulated and then repeatedly recycled ad nauseam until our noggins are nefariously numbed. There's quite a lot to think about and maybe I'll watch it again.
But the way she got him back for that was brilliant. The sex scenes were pretty uncomfortable, and the bit with the weird guy in glasses and Holly's dealer was really intense. Suzi Alternative Ageing I watched this movie and thought it was really good. It makes the pacing slow and the plot goes in circles repeating things that have already happened or that don't really drive the plot forward. If a creepy cuss in his '70's arriving at climax with a dazed damsel in distress in the time it takes to describe such, and a pathetically pandering perspective of a straight razor roaming over a beleaguered babe's bare breasts are supposed to elicit erotic emotion within, then. . The acting and production quality are generally acceptable and fairly typical for a lower budget movie.
A little bit slow to start, but once it got going it was actually quite intense. If you've been brainwashed or whatever they call it, you don't necessarily know that you have been. Probably where the film suffers the most is with the editing. Well, friends, consider yourself formally initiated. But there are definitely better movies in this category such as 'Get Out'.
I like psychological science fiction movies, so I'm probably going to be more generous with my review than the average person would be. Some things also made me cringe, in particular the older pervert who uses trickery in attempt to seduce the younger woman who purportedly works for him. I feel like the material involved here has the potential to be a good. This seems to imply that we can expect senses scrambling, reality wrecking, psychedelically spectacular fun, right? Overall the movie is definitely not as engaging as it could be, but it's not a complete disaster either, it's the sort of movie that I just watch casually because I am interested in the genre. A really good film and plot. Oh my, how wrong we would be. If you'd be generous enough to indulge, allow me to break it down word-for-word if I may.
