The film exhibits almost nothing that resembles recognizable human behavior.
Once the plot kicks in after the first reel, things head pretty much where you'd expect and all the sisterly bouts of love, hate and lamentation can grow rather tedious ...
It is not simply that this film is utterly unrealistic... What is unforgiveable is that Langseth's approach to complex emotional issues is unsubtle at best and untruthful at worst.
Plays as if it might have come from Yorgos Lanthimos' bin of discarded ideas.
The variety of experience portrayed in "Euphoria" continually tickles the cerebrum as the unique atmosphere forces the guests to engage with both the environment and each other, but it's the raw, unvarnished performances that tug at the heart.
Euphoria is undeniably a missed opportunity at creating a drama of frayed sisterhood that feels fresh and unique.
The story moves from curiously intimate and mysterious but extremely repetitive to utterly unrelatable with its focus on über wealthy people -- a focus that hardly seems necessary given the themes.
Euphoria quickly settles into a subdued, meandering narrative devoted mostly to the characters' continuing chatter...
Watching Green play a depressed dying girl is like watching Michael Jordan when he was playing baseball.
The failing lies in the script, penned by Langseth, is clunky and overwrought, feeling the need to tell rather than show every hurdle the characters are going through.
For a film that literally isolates its characters from the rest of the world to confront each other head on, the drama plays more conventional than challenging.
Having established her premise and characters, writer/director [Lisa] Langseth does absolutely nothing with them, letting Euphoria drift through one scene after another without ever gaining dramatic momentum or emotional weight.
