Sleeping Beauty Reviews
She is constantly stoic, not because she's devastated but because how else would she be? People treat her like glass and the girl has seen and been through some shit that made my skin crawl. She's un-phased, because she doesn't give the "horror" any value. At least not until her nightmares become a reality.
Personally, I thought it was a great exploration of voyeur, perversion and cinematography. If you felt Lucy needed more depth, maybe you're just asking for too much.
She's supposed to be non-descriptive, dwindled down to nothing more than her looks. If the world treats you that way, than you're going to play the part.
In the end, she clearly bit off more than she could chew - financially, emotionally, sexually. This movie was horrifying and beautiful and creepy and sad. If you can handle slow-awkward tension and perversion, please watch. If not, definitely move along... Very beautifully shot and directed. Cheers.
No real point to the movie at all. Plot's initial idea is to shock the audience, and even that feels dull and drawn out, reminding me of Eyes Wide Shut. After that it just drifts around and goes nowhere.
Performances are generally unconvincing and dull, in keeping with the plot. Emily Browning was miscast in the lead role (though every other actress out there should be thanking their lucky stars that they don't have this on their CV).
Avoid at all costs. It will save you nearly two hours of your life.
