I can understand why the performances were lauded, but I'm not convinced by the rationale for the story or the way it was told. Not to say films can't be challenging or unsettling, but my husband and I were both left uncomfortable with this male storytelling fantasy about female response to rape and trauma...

I enjoyed this quite a bit - even the cringe moments. There's not really any scene that I thought should be cut out, but as a whole piece, it felt just a tiny bit too long. Still, the writing, acting, and locations were great, and I've kept its rating relatively high for originality. Recommended.

I know it's sacrilege, but I was never actually very into the original film - in fact, I liked this one more. A bit slower and less grotesque, but still has its harrowing moments. I liked the modest amounts of redemption, and its meditation on aging. The soundtrack of the original was better, though. ;)

I wanted to like this more. I'm sure they had fun making it. But the writing was just not worthy of the talent, or the subject matter. Sigh.
