Audience Reviews for The Passion of Darkly Noon
An off-beat, haunting, overwrought fairy tale for adults. The Passion of Darkly Noon is indie cinema as opera - huge, iconic, occasionally ridiculous, sometimes moving, undisputedly spectacular.
A truly bizarre film featuring a lot of future stars (Brendan Fraser, Viggo Mortensen, and Ashley Judd), The Passion of Darkly Noon follows a young man who escapes from a cult and attempts to fit in with a modern couple living in a rural location. Unfortunately, Darkly''s (yes, that's his name) love for the beautiful young woman begins to drive him insane once her mute boyfriend returns. Intensely strange and definitely original, The Passion of Darkly Noon delivers a few moments of twistedness but ultimately fails to entirely make up for its somewhat idiotic aesthetic.
An interesting movie. Darkly is nursed to health by the hot Callie (Ashley Judd). When her boyfriend returns, Darkly is conflicted - he was raised by deeply religious parents vs his obsession for Callie. You get more and more uncomfortable as the movie advances to its inevitable conclusion. Mind you, I hate obscure stuff like the big shiny boot floating on a lake.
