"She's Lost Control" is a quiet triumph, a true herald of a distinctive and necessary voice in cinema.
First-time writer-director Anja Marquardt paints a pointed, emotionally honest portrait of a woman detached from the public yet unable to avoid such typical life problems as a dysfunctional family and a straitened financial situation.
"She's Lost Control" sustains a mood of deepening alienation, but the attitude of the movie is too detached for it to be emotionally gripping, and its ending is botched.
There's a lot left unsaid in director Anja Marquardt's chilly yet intimate and thought-provoking indie drama. But what should be said loud and clear is that actress Brooke Bloom is riveting.
Marquardt leaves too much intentional ambiguity for her film to fall victim to predictability.
The story of a behavioral psychologist specializing in sexual surrogacy provides insight into intriguing characters for whom professional intimacy supplants personal relationships.
But the biggest problem with She's Lost Control is the lack of thematic drive...
With some shrewd and swift twists and turns, She's Lost Control [...] is part women's picture, part sex thriller.
Too often, She's Lost Control hazily drifts from scene to scene, invested in examining the exhausted topic of what happens when a sex professional finds that the rigid boundary between work and off-duty pleasure has become uncomfortably porous.
Overall, I enjoyed the film, even if, at times, it felt like watching an accident in extremely slow motion.
An astutely cold and compelling psychological drama.
The first half functions as an impressive showcase for Marquardt's formal chops, as well as for Bloom's gorgeously empathetic performance.
