News & Interviews for Lotus Eaters
Critic Reviews for Lotus Eaters
Even though the handsome black-and-white lensing is no substitute for a compelling story, it helps, infusing the skin-deep sketches of emotional enervation with aesthetic energy - for a while.
Lotus Eaters wants desperately to be a portrait of the beautiful and the damned, with its tale of West London rich kids doing drugs and shagging each other, but it's more like a spectacle of the spoiled and annoying.
Like its characters, Lotus Eaters is a visual treat-and emotionally vapid.
Maddeningly shallow-maybe that's the point-but McGuinness does have talent.
Audience Reviews for Lotus Eaters
With fairy-tale like set designs and film shots that appear to have come alive from a high fashion magazine editorial shoot, lotus eaters sucks you into the world of a glamorous yet destructive sensation-seeking group of 20 somethings with too much time on their hands. Saved by its beautiful imagery and black and white filming, this film leaves you with not much to ponder about with characters that are slightly two-dimensional although not quite far-fetched.
Quite an interesting look at a world that is rather inaccessible to the general population.
