The thing about this movie that people don't understand is that it isn't supposed to be a typical movie. The events in the movie happen chaotically and don't follow a typical Hollywood movie story-line. That's the point. The events unfold in a way that is random, much like real life. It's filmed as if you are a fly on the wall, seeing a snapshot of someones life and not as if you are in a theater eating popcorn and being told a fun story. This movie has a lot of depth to it that people are not appreciating.
Of all the genres that could exist "Fucked-Up-Coming-of-Age-Movie" would be my favourite. Hick is an example of such a genre. But it is not a great one. It's not a garbage movie at all, but it gets more and more lazy very swiftly as the piece goes forth.
Average action thriller about a young girl who runs away from home after her parents obviously don't care for her. She ends up getting involved with some pretty bad encounters and is left wondering if she made the right choice
Chloe does an amazing job displaying her innocent side in this film, Eddie is obviously good at playing psycho, villain-risk characters and does an amazing job at sending chills down my spine here. Blake lively wasn't the choice I expected to play Glenda but exceeded my expectations with this part. This film is definitely not for those easily offended as it is extremely off-putting between death drugs and kidnapping. I personally love this movie and will not hesitate to re watch it.
I'm surprised at the low rating on here, despite the fact that I'm giving it one. Critics usually eat these movies up. But this one is trashy, creepy, unpleasant, and has a very asinine ending that gives a nice big middle finger to anyone who sat through it. Chloe Grace, as always, is the highlight. I've yet to see this girl in anything where she failed to bring something special and distinctive to the table. She's one of our finest young actresses. Eddie Redmayne also does a convincing job as an American psycho. But ultimately...no lessons learned here. Move on.
