The Isle is a quiet and subdued film, but it is a powerful and at times, horrifying film. What really makes this film so great is how it presents itself. It's nothing bombastic, but it requires the viewer to pay attention to the little details like small interactions, facial expressions, and the overall behaviors of the characters which are almost always subtle. It's a film about two broken souls finding each other, but slowly destroying one another as they descend into self-destruction and do horrifying things to keep their love alive. I've seen plenty of gruesome and gory horror films and thrillers, but this one hit me like one hasn't hit me since I watched Suddenly, Last Summer. This is easily one of the most disturbing films I've ever seen, not only because of some of the things that occur in the film, but how it forces you to figure out what makes the two lead characters tick through their actions - and it is terrifying. It's truly a superb film that does a sublime job of displaying the darkest aspects of human nature and how far some will go to get what they want. If you enjoy a good, harrowing drama, The Isle is definitely a film to see.
