It's a contrived -- though carefully crafted -- bit of movie gamesmanship that sometimes seems like a claustrophobic stunt.
De Heer offers a wicked twist on household secrets and lies.
De Heer, who also wrote the script, would have us believe that a wife who's tired of her oblivious bloke of a husband could suddenly become conniving and cruel, coolly defending her actions with twisted logic that's sold as feminism.
It's a movie that will leave few men unrattled and many women vicariously satisfied.
Buday is coolly persuasive in the seesaw role of an unbalanced housewife who jerks from despair to anger.
That damn videotape takes the edge off the mood both visually and dramatically.
Manipulateur et de mauvaise foi.
It plays as part thriller, part psycho drama, but really tends to play around with the genres rather than settle in for the ride.
nihilistic film covers familiar territory in a fresh new way that is extremely memorable
It's the tension and performances that pull you through, never letting your attention stray from what's going down on-screen.
confidently shot and scripted in clipped, emotionally direct dialogue that's thankfully not resorting to Harold Pinter, David Mamet, or Neil LaBute
I Spit on Your Grave gets to the nitty gritty. The equally problematic Alexandra's Project is simply glib.
Good slow-paced, but taut adult psychological thriller. This is a classic case of the man is the evil perpetrator, while the woman is the victim. Anyone with a bit of common sense knows this is false in reality, and both sides of the story must be examined. This film only presents Alexandra's demented and deceptive side of the story.
Director Rolf de Heer is a genius! Rolf exposes feminism for its sickness and inconsistencies. He is showing how subtle misandry is. This movie is about how sickness can fester inside a deranged woman's mind, and from her perception, she is always right.
The narrative is compelling and the film definitely benefices from the marvelous performances of Gary Sweet and Helen Buday, but the material is too implausible and far-fetched.
WTF!!! I read the plot-line and was expecting some great mystery. I'd no idea that this will turn out to be so awful. Maybe the worst I've seen this year. It's too slow paced, but that's not where I'd problem. The problem lied in over-exposure. Too much nudity, IMHO. I felt like I was watching some porno. Making things worse, it didn't turn out to be as great that I could feel that it's worth sitting through the slow-paced nudity. However, I'm not sure; some may enjoy it. It simply wasn't my cup of tea.
One of those movies where I can't decide whether I liked it or not. Very dark, intense, and graphic. It was definitely unpredictable, that's for sure.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Alexandra (Helen Buday) plans and executes a most intricate birthday present for her husband, Steve (Gary Sweet), that starts off happy enough, but leaves him stunned, angry, and broken. A rollercoaster ride of emotions play out here and the tension is palpable. We are not sure where this will lead, but hold on tight, because it all makes sense in the end. We may not agree with the final result, but we can at least understand what led up to it. Very well done, and if one listens closely, there might be issues raised that would provoke discussions with one's significant other. Definitely not for the kiddies.
