Critic Reviews for A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness
Avant-garde cognoscenti are surely already in line, yet the film is accessible and often hypnotic on an intuitive level.
The atmosphere is mythic and pervasive. The imagery, of night and nature and dancing flames, seems ripped from liner notes. Even the title sounds like something you might see scrawled across a record sleeve in Gothic typeface.
Landscapes and lyric conundrums distinguish the first two-thirds of this find-your-own-meaning artflick, which unfurls like some stranger's life you're half reliving.
For some this will feel like an arthouse endurance test, but it's shot with real beauty.
Rivers and Russell have certainly cast a spell that sticks.
Audience Reviews for A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness
One star for the heavy metal, if you leave out the singing. This is a good film to go to if you have to get indoors somewhere dry for a while and take a nap during a film that has really long takes of nothing happening, and I mean really long takes. Except for the band members, all of the characters in this including the lead actor are incredibly boring and superficial. The woman spouting the potted philosophy takes the cake for inanity. But ignore everything and have your sleep; that will be the best part.
