Peirone's first feature is marked by a daring style and a willingness to dive deeply into the darker psychology of female friendship. A uniquely feminine horror film, "Braid" is a bold debut worth watching.
I came away feeling that I'd seen, if not a major film, then a film by major talents.
Braid ultimately offers far more style than substance. But it provides many memorable moments and stunning visuals along the way, making it a cinematic ride worth experiencing for more adventurous viewers.
Peirone's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink directing does tend to head butt her thin writing, but the movie eventually coalesces as a sly, bitter parable against chasing-your-dreams optimism.
Suspense, let alone psychological nuance or narrative development, all take a back seat to what feels like an empty, mannered series of dress-up photo opportunities.
In Braid, the boundaries between reality, fantasy, and outright nightmare dissolve in a blur of psychosexual weirdness
This is the chilling inauguration of a filmmaker with enough promise and poise to continue turn heads for years to come.
Beyond creating a novel aesthetic, there is little to recommend about watching Braid.
Catches us in its sordid tangle and never lets us go.
[It's] such a nightmarish vision of co-dependent imagination ... that, if we actually knew for certain what the hell is happening here, it might be more disappointing.
Time becomes malleable [as Pierone] removes the pathways from one scene to another so we can find ourselves in the same bottomless rabbit hole as her characters.
Braid is not for the weak-minded and it will begin screwing with you almost as soon as it begins.
