Cry of the Owl Reviews
It has a lot of awkwardness about it--one of the twists is when a stalker is discovered by the chick he's stalking--only for her to begin stalking him. The characters are awkward people in awkward situations, the mood is a bit depressing and never really uplifts.
The movie is bizarre for it's characters and their interactions, but strangely never stirs too much emotion either up or down. As great as it is to feel intensely happy, sad, angry, etc... this film is sort of numbing, nihilistic (in a good way) which I find an equally valuable feeling.
I liked the part where Considine fights with the boyfriend, who then goes missing.
It looks like the bf committed suicide in the river and I thought, "My god, how can this not look like murder?"
Interesting scenario, maybe more could have been done with it.
A curious little flight of fancy; worthy of the journey, if a little dark.
You know when you watch a movie and at the end you think what was the point...it was a "nothingness" movie,filmed and acted good but thats it...this was one of those movies. Its a remake of a French movie that was based on a book...betting you the French version and the book are better...well lets face it they could not be worse. I am glad i only paid £1 for this because i already feel robbed.
