Critic Reviews for Magic Magic
The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable: the performances are strong, the photography is crisp and immersive, and the mood is ripe and ominous.
Meticulously acted, gorgeously shot and hilariously insightful about the strange, inarticulable ways people can get on one another's nerves, this psychological thriller takes its premise to surprising, darkly comic extremes ...
It's refreshing to see something with a dramatic heart beating beneath its discomfiting exterior.
The plaudits rest with [Juno] Temple, whose white-faced panic carries her over plot weaknesses through sheer force of will.
It's a big load of much-ado-about-nothing dressed up in writer- director Sebastian Silva's arty movements.
Audience Reviews for Magic Magic
The title here is what I quibble against, leading unsuspecting audience-types like myself to suspect supernatural elements in this story when in truth there are none. THERE ARE NONE. A young woman on vacation loses her true north and the people with her wonder what to do about it. Annnnd ... roll credits. "What?! That's it?!" Yep. That's it.
I think this is marketed badly. It's not a thriller at all - it's about mental illness. Juno temple and Emily Browning do well here. The rest of the cast are irritating. The movie moves slowly and the ending isn't really what you would want to see either. I liked it, but it's not entirely engaging and I wouldn't watch it again.
