Alps (Alpeis) Reviews

October 28, 2019
As predictably intolerable as one might've anticipated...

Giorgos Lanthimos' "Alps" is a gimmick brought to life, a conceptual idea of a social situation filmed with automatons and containing but an illustration of a concept.

It's hard to see what, if anything, Lanthimos is saying about modern Greece. And without that clear focus, the film feels a bit off-piste.

What does it mean?

Lanthimos is such a distinctive film-maker and nothing he does is without interest - but this is a misfire.

The movie's morbidly funny once you get the hang of it, and climaxes deftly, but for too long Lanthimos feels like he's stalling for no especial purpose.

The movie contains some of the same elements that made [Dogtooth] so startling but they tend to float around rather than coalesce into a singular perspective.

Lanthimos' vision still compels and challenges, but Alps offers a big idea in place of a better movie.
September 6, 2012
A film peculiar beyond all understanding, based on a premise that begs belief.

A strange story. A strange world. And strange characters doing even stranger things.

An overly elaborate riddle
September 6, 2011
The cumulative force of the screenplay and Yorgos Mavropsaridis' editing is not as hypnotic as in Dogtooth, perhaps in part because those familiar with Lanthimos' m.o. will know what to expect.
