It becomes a film about her [Swinton] scattered mind. That produces wonders from Swinton, but it ignores the plea in the title. What about Kevin? Kevin deserves so much more attention-indeed, he deserves being played by Tilda Swinton.
There's an infinitely more impactful movie to be made that deals with the same subject but doesn't take things to an unrealistic extreme. A son that's not the very spawn of the devil is a solid place to start.
Un drama psicológico tenso y abrumador, en algún punto quizás insoportable. Al final, nadie espera que se entienda por qué pasó lo que pasó, pero sí al menos que se tenga una aproximación a lo que es vivir con una pesadilla a cuestas.
Whatever you think of the philosophical weight of Ramsay's film - I find it ... less nuanced than David Foster Wallace's one liner that Hobbes was simply "Rousseau in a dark mirror" - there's a fierce integrity in Swinton's performance.
Smug but fascinating: The movie is a woman's cry of anguish for an unjust world that enables men at all levels of age and power to get away with cruelty, brutality, murder and even war because, well, 'that's what boys DO.'
Swinton doesn't say much; she doesn't have to. Her tear-stained eyes and anguished face carry all her emotions. In a career filled with so many terrific, subtle performances, this is clearly one of her best.
Rock Duer's a shoo-in if they ever make Satan: The Toddler Years and Jasper Newell manages to project an aura of pure evil even in pull-ups, but it's Ezra Miller as the adolescent Kevin who makes you believe you're in the presence of an American monster.
