Wuthering Heights Reviews
How are you supposed to care about a character when they hang puppies every time they're in a bad mood? Why is this even a famous love story? How? There's no love whatsoever. Cathy & Heathcliff are 2 AWFUL hateful abusive psycho sociopaths that are even more evil when they're together.
If you enjoy watching a tree branch hit a window, grey dreary everything, random puppy murder, & CONSTANT wind broken up by 2-3 words maybe every half hour - you're the one weirdo artsy-fartsy a**hole who might like this film.
I'd rather kill myself than watch this ever again. Save yourself the monotonous torture & don't watch it ever.
only in that both have nothing to do with Wuthering Heights.
Excluding that, the way the story is narrated, with a shaky (like if we are all constantly gallopping) camera, doesn't give justice to the book, neither allow whoever has not read that to understand what everything is about.
It is not just about people necks and backs (yes, we understand the idea is to show reality from Heathcliff's perspective) and not even about a wonderful English moorland, with more mud than one wants to see (yes, it is obvious that Cathy and Heathcliff are earth people), but the silences are just unbearable! Why has the director tried to hard to be original and has not understood what the book is all about? The only remarkable and possibly well placed choice is to have Heathcliff depicted as a black guy: that was a puzzle tile that made sense in the void created by the rest of the movie.
I'd say if you're interested in a mashup of Tarkovsky, The Lord of the Rings, and National Geographic then this is the movie for you.
