Antibodies brings together a philosophically minded serial killer, a devoutly religious cop and a cynical filmmaker clearly itching to go Hollywood.
A German thriller that isn't shy about ripping off The Silence of the Lambs.
The film's pace is brisk enough to maintain our full attention. Antibodies is not so much an art house movie as a well-made, commercial thriller that happens to be in German.
Instead of reinventing the procedural mechanics of the serial-killer drama, filmmaker Christian Alvert adds to its current state of retardation with desperate atmospherics and a cheap disquisition on sex and religion.
Antibodies is fairly riveting, thanks to Alvart's command of craft and tone. He's a director to watch.
Steeped in religion yet shot through with moral ambiguity, this disturbing psychological thriller breathes new life into the moribund serial killer movie.
A compelling mixture of "Silence of the Lambs" and the biblical tale of god commanding Abraham to slay his son Isaac--believe it or not.
a sophisticatedly modern noir thriller that sorts the sheep from the lambs.
Com vastas referências a Se7en, O Silêncio dos Inocentes e O Homem de Palha, é um filme cujas excelentes fotografia e montagem constroem uma eficaz atmosfera de tensão. Ainda assim, torna-se previsível em seu terceiro ato.
As an exercise in watching a bad guy burrow too deeply into a good guy's head, Antibodies proves more gross than psychologically unsettling.
Alvart adorns everything in portentous biblical trappings but is more interested in sleek visuals and rug-pulling gimmicks than his protagonist's (histrionically handled) moral conflict.
A tangible sense of evil lingers over this German serial killer shocker, but the introduction of religious symbolism tips the action into self-conscious melodrama.
Like Hannibal Lecter with dentures, Antibodies lacks bite but still disturbs.
It's a frightening, cleverly scripted picture that has much sport with the supposed contrast between the fresh innocence of countryside and the inherent corruption of the city.
