Great acting performances. I felt a certain scene was a bit unnecessary but it did tie the film all together. A tough watch *deep breaths*
Natalie Portman strikes again, great score also. Some moments where the acting of secondary characters doesn’t work as well.
Very well performed. Creepy and unsettling.
Despite his childhood being stolen, Joe protects his children’s futures at the cost of his own wellbeing. Powerful story and acting.
Overly melodramatic in an incredibly self-aware way. Wildly entertaining, even though I'm unsure what Haynes is going for here.
Controversial subject matter is supported nicely by unsettling atmosphere of the movie containing some of the best performances of the year.
Bizarre, uncomfortable, where no one is in their right mind.
You will get the most out of the movie if you look up the story that it's based on.
Imagine Bergman crossed with a little Waters, a little Lynch and you’re not far off. Melton is a masterwork of arrested development & pathos
Portman gives a top-tier performance, and characters develop persuasively as screen time progresses. The score sadly is out of place, though
