A highly imaginative if often darkly disturbing work that even at its most seemingly outlandish remains intriguing and involving.
"Heartless" is an uneasy mixture of B-movie shocks, social commentary and sentimentality that shows a potent imagination at work.
It doesn't go anywhere special or much of anywhere, though it goes there in appreciably icky style.
A moody, portentous tale of demons running amok on the streets of London.
With erratic success, Heartless tries a number of different veins.. but it's on firmest footing as a macabre comedy.
There's more mood than matter here, but suspenseful atmospherics effectively distract from minor plot holes.
Aside from performances, most of Heartless's faults could be explained away by its storyline but that doesn't make it any more entertaining in the moment. Still, it's an intriguing watch for fans of the genre.
Ridley lets the darkness permeate the space and filter into his characters, who are unable to prevent their own hearts from being eaten alive.
While ambitious, 'Heartless' derails in a big way, stacking the deck with weird moments intended to give it some kind of cult status, without considering that films specifically designed to be "cult" are rarely the ones that actually are.
Earns points for combining two sub-genres (revenge and occult) into one surprisingly original tale of violence and redemption.
Heartless isn't as dazzling as The Reflecting Skin but it's nice to hear from Ridley again after all these years.
"Heartless" is a bit of a jumble, especially in its last third. But it's got a distinct tone, contrasting romance and even outright sentimentality with urban dread and a few nasty visuals.
The first 2/3'rds of this movie was very interesting, different, and unusually intriguing. After that, however, it took a nose dive into "huh?". I wasn't at all getting where they decided to take the story..what happened, why it happened, or what any of it meant. Too bad....
A British thriller about a young man who has a birthmark across his face and body, everyone stares at him as shun's him no matter what he does or where he goes, father dead passing on the hobby of Photography to him. While out shooting pictures he stumbles across so deamon like creachters. We would also do anything to be loved by a beautiful girl. Doing anything means making a pact with the devil, the pact is he must kill someone once a month or face the consequecis. Pretty good thriller, 3 1/2 stars
Heartless is the B-Movie Arthouse film that takes on a unique interpretation to one's sense of reality with bizarre details both in production design and the protagonist's outlook. This imaginative script has the potential to go more deeply in to it's essence of darker urban horror and psychological feats. But nonetheless, it's a good watch of a thriller that nowadays are lacking.
Jamie, a photographer with a disfiguring birthmark sees demons on the streets of London, then is drawn into a Faustian deal with a sinister character known as "Papa B." Ambitious in scope with some effective scenes (especially the scene where Jamie first strikes the Hellish bargain with Papa B), but the mix of dramatic character study, social commentary, surrealism, and horror movie cliches doesn't always gel.
