Critic Reviews for Allure
The screenplay doesn't rise to the level of the behind-the-camera craftmanship or the acting.
The utterly humorless script of Allure often makes for uneasy viewing.
The filmmakers seem less concerned with telling a story than in convincing the audience (and maybe themselves) that they can handle this provocative and potentially exploitive material ... with what's conventionally considered "appropriate" sensitivity.
I suppose there are worse things for a film to be than an educational conversation starter. However, Allure is a difficult, and ultimately, an unsatisfying watch as a film.
This is an exquisite portrait of human suffering. Particularly for first-time writer/directors the film is a marvel, a brilliant objet d'art that is incredibly unpleasant to watch.
