This movie was a very unique and strange one. It was divided in three parts that could almost been not related with each other, but they were. To me, the best ones were the first one and the last the one, because they were more creepy and terrifying, but they also had an excellent atmosphere and cinematography. Nonetheless, the second one was interesting too but wasn't scary nor kept it creepiness of the movie. What I really liked was the style of the movie and how it referenced the Italian giallo style and its cinematography which was pretty cool and worth checking out. My only problem with the film was that it lacked a story and a base to go from, because it simply started and suddenly ended after three chapters without a plot or an explanation. Because I don't think the movie can be all about its look but also its content is very important, and this one was lacking it. And apparently after I made some research, I learned that the movie deals with the sexual awakening of the lead female character, and that's what it's about, although it was very sensual and tamely erotic, it kind of makes a little sense. Therefore, I am glad that I watched this film, because I had never heard of it and it has some pretty cool imagery and some unforgettable scenes that surely get deep under your skin.

The Pact II

The Pact II

I don't remember the first Pact that much to compare both of them, but I think that the first one was a little more superior, but not by too much. Therefore, this wasn't a very good movie because most of the story didn't make sense and also I didn't remember half of what happened on the first one. The acting was not that great and the whole story wasn't as strong as the first one, and I do have to say that the first one was more original and probably was better to left alone. In the end it left me more perplexed and confused because I still cannot get my head around all it's mythology and how everything is able to happen.

I was intrigued about this movie and it's premise, but also because it starred Julianne Moore and it was going to be released on the Criterion Collection. But I had to admit that it was a very odd and ambiguous movie that left me not with that many questions but perplexed as to what had happened on the movie. Because it was all so inexplicable and strange but at the same time very helpless to watch Moore's character without any type of identity nor with any sign of what was really going on with her. Furthermore, the movie itself was very slow paced and it therefore affected it, but just to follow her character and go through everything with her was a fine experience and a very unique one. Therefore, I feel like the movie could've been better if it wasn't too ambiguous without compromising any of its value but also if it had developed more Moore's character and what was going on inside her head to kind of understand her more and her life. But overall, I feel like I should watch the movie again just to try and understand it more but also to see if I missed anything else of the movie itself. However, it did have a very good performance from Julianne Moore and the movie was good too, but it was maybe too pretentious or not enough, and I'm just thinking it too much but still it was hard to understand and to get my head around it.

This a good western movie, but maybe one that relied too much on the excellent performances of its cast because if it wasn't for them, the movie would've been tedious. And that because it kind of bored me in some scenes, but there were some little gems that really gave the movie a lot of heart. But for the most part, the movie looked very beautiful and Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones were terrific in the lead roles but also the three actresses playing the three insane women were really good. And so the movie was better as a character driven film than as it's whole story intended to be, because it did tend to become tiring once in a while.

Jenny Slate is really a revelation in this movie, and it was actually pretty funny and somewhat touching. But to me, it never reached that point were it made it either hysterical or a mixture of emotions with humor. However it was still a very good movie with a good script and a great performance.
