Critic Reviews for The Eyes of My Mother
It is a stark, dreadful vision - but one that is fascinatingly executed, with a compelling central performance from Kika Magalhaes as a matter-of-fact monster.
Chilling and disturbing, this is not a film for the faint-hearted.
Writer-director Nicolas Pesce's debut feels unnervingly like a Diane Arbus photo that's been stretched into a film. Which is to say, it's unnerving.
This is what curdled Americana looks like - a Joel-Peter Witkin portfolio come to life and a vision of jus' folks weaned on isolation, madness, and good old Type O.
Pesce and I obviously don't agree on what constitutes effective (or maybe just productive) ambiguity. It's not a bad film ... it just isn't all there.
