I must say, the idea of Darren Aronofsky’s clear and simple. For viewers familiar with the Bible, the old and the New Testament is clear almost immediately, for those not familiar with the Scriptures closer to the end. But understandable.
Another is not clear… Why introduce the viewer to a Grand delusion in this trailer… Seeing the movie, and then reading in the genre “horror” no one would think that on screen it entire 2 hours will gradually leak a bit sluggish biblical story. It’s just not fair.
Movies with a similar theme on the fan. Certainly not horror.
The cast gathered promising, and I must say that it did not disappoint. One Michelle Pfeiffer in this tape is worth a lot. In General, apart from the story itself, and to rely only on acting, then there is nothing to complain about. They really lived it… 80% of the film rests on the faces of Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. One scene with the beating first, in the end of the film, which is… It’s really high quality and powerful shot. They are going to play. Experienced.
But it was not enough… as specific failures in the plot and spoil the whole thing together, while the comparison with the Antichrist come to mind more and more throughout the film.
Taking up viewing this film be prepared that some of the questions (which are so, for a moment, link the story), you will not find answers neither in the Bible nor in Google. And this unfortunate omission. In paintings of this kind such “failures” is not the place. Not created that impression from the movie that could be, if things were a little more logical and easier. You start to load the picture into the story, and there is a hole. Is it worth it from at least a little distracted as there is a second and a third.
I’m sure this film will find its audience, but unfortunately, or fortunately, in my face he didn’t. And certainly never, no, I do not advise to watch it in the cinema.
