With excellent lead performances from Anya Taylor Joy and Olivia Cooke, an unhinged supporting role from the late Anton Yelchin, a haunting soundtrack, beautiful cinematography, and an unpredictable, original and thrilling narrative, it expertly mixes genres while providing a dark portrayal of high-class society, making it a surreal and often disturbing but ultimately satisfying viewing experience.
Genuinely an unpredictable, very well-filmed teen crime thriller driven by Cooke's committed monotonous performance and Taylor-Joy's edgy teen angst on the corrupted verge from innocence, both smartly mixes in a cruel sense of dark humor that little would share. (B)
By the end I liked it more than I realized at first. It had a weirdness that wasn’t too forced, and I thought about it more afterward than I would have expected. The two main characters, while not at all likeable, are each intriguing in their own way. If at first it seemed superficial, the gruesome plot eventually came together like some vaguely abstract but dark commentary on society, sort of like a less-annoying “Funny Games”.
The script offers a black thriller with two young psychopaths that exposes the game of manipulation and power of the "empty" unhappiness of the upper classes and the lack of empathy for the rest of classes and people, personifying sociopathy in its two central characters.
Cory Finley, a first time filmmaker, got five million to make a movie and does a relatively good job in a picture that feels like an empty exercise. It's never not entertaining, but it's never wowing either. The cast is great and it's sad to finally get to Anton Yelchin's final film. It's a bit too tidy of a finish, but as far as things are right now this is a film worth recommending. Final Score: 6.7/10
This movie is incredible, and is now my favorite movie. I discovered it probably a year and a half ago, and my only wish is to experience the feeling i had watching it for the first time.
Yes, for some people, it may be slow, but when you deeply look, it's nothing like that. A lot of efforts were made in the description and evolution of the characters, and i would recomand you to watch it twice to really catch all of the red flags. The end caught me off guard, and the last 20 minutes are pure perfection.
I love the way it depict violence, mental health and emotions in a way that is more implicit. The relationship between Amanda and Lily feels real and is complicated, but also simple. I felt like i deeply know the characters after only one viewing, but probably watched it 10 times afterwards, just because i love it so much.
This movie puts me, and maybe this is personal, in a kind of transe, as if i couldn't move, the music is incredible and weirdly sticks to the characters. The performances of Anya Taylor Joy, Olivia Cook and Anton Yelchin are outstanding.
On a more personal note: I love this movie with all my heart and identified with the characters, especially Amanda, because i suffer from a mental illness that is close to what she is experiencing. I feel like the emotions are depicted in such an original but perfect way that it makes it feel even more real.
Pretentious teenage girls plan to kill their step-dad because they swear that they're not just sociopathic rich kids? Sounds like my kind of black comedy/crime thriller.
How do so many bad movies get produced?
Anton Yelchin was the stand out.
A slow but not boring movie. The movie evolves just like the characters in it. Funny moments, although a special kind of comedy that's not for everyone. In the end the movie becomes disturbingly surprising in a good way. Nice long shots with great captured pictures.
Good first, but not on par with Bad Education. Unrealistic climax in particular took it down a few.
