Critic Reviews for Entrance
A deliberately paced indie offering that bills itself as a psychological thriller but is actually an aimless tone piece about twentysomething emotional dislocation that only in its final reel leaps somewhat clumsily into genre-oriented skirmish.
Proving that small of means does not equate to slight of impact, "Entrance" is a shrewdly distressing knockout.
Audience Reviews for Entrance
Extremely slow burn. Good ending but not sure if the first 60 minutes was even worth that ending.
I am completely baffled by any praise it may receive because this is a film that does not work at all. The filmmakers are apparently trying to simulate real life by making the depiction of the protagonist's life dull and monotonous, but real life is far more interesting. Hell, just watch anybody's home movies and you're sure to find interesting people and dialogue that puts this lifeless assembly of cardboard cutouts to shame. There is a whole lot of nothing going on in this movie. Endless shots of people feeding their dogs and scrubbing toilets. The last half of the movie is the only half of the movie in which anything of consequence actually happens but it lacks the desired impact because we don't care about anyone involved. We don't care because we never got to know any of these people despite the fact that we were subjected to them for the first hour or so. They are such dullards, they hardly speak more than a few syllables, and they don't seem to have any interests beyond being an object in the movie. I was bored to death by the pretentious artsy quality. Lots of shaky cam for no apparent reason than to scream at the audience: "look, we're real!" I hated this movie. It is inept!
Yes, it seems slow and dull and where are we going with this, but it powerfully delivers on the methodical buildup of a sense, a feeling that something truly horrific is about to happen to this lovely, very nice girl. Wow! Looking forward to the next flick from these folks. The lead actress is wonderful.
