.I was mildly entertained throughout, yet there was a spark missing at the heart of this film that should have carried me through that simply wasnâ(TM)t there. It also sorely missed Burtonâ(TM)s trademark style, leaving it to largely feel like palatable studio machinery the longer you sit with it.
It's unsettling as they come, but its artistic/symbolic reach mixes poorly with its sarcastic lampoons of the genre, combining into a bizarre mish-mash that demands that you take it more seriously than it takes itself before copping out in a frustrating ending that spoils its own thematic relevancy.
Deeply unsettling yet somehow joyous, Festen celebrates the simplicity of cinema by digging into the complexity of human drama in the most satisfying way possible.
An exciting pseudo-twist on the Marvel formula, this flick makes the most of its roots and turns heads with visual flair and emotional punches in a way that feels genuine thanks largely to Larsen's charisma and the smart use of indie drama talent in the directors' chairs.
Deftly juggling lots of tones and topics, Lee makes some important points but tends to get too lost in the lightness of it all to deliver some of the emotional blows he's aiming for.
