Just found this extremely slow paced film to be terribly pretentious, even annoying. Couldn't evoke any emotions for any of the characters.
Very dark film written and directed by Phil Leirness. Seven men will gather and put up $5,000 apiece to be judged on their abilities and methods to seduce a woman of their choosing. Of course as you might expect the misogyny and treatment of the women as "objects" will be sky high. It was very uncomfortable for me to watch the men being so despicable, but when the game is over there will be dire consequences to be faced by them including murder. The big twist at the end I did not see coming but one could say poetic justice had been served.
Extremely grim, bizarre, violent, and surrealistic tale. Plus, over two and a half hours is way too long for this movie. Some of the Tarantino-like dialogue was effective at times
To me, the premise was preposterous and I can spare little emotion for Wall Street vipers, but there is a lot of fresh and original elements here from writer and director Kim Nguyen (War Witch). Eisenberg is at his frenetic best, Skarsgard is also excellent, as are Hayek and Mando.
Set in Kenya, two young women fall in love and begin a lesbian relationship. However in that country, any type of gay relationship is not only forbidden but it's also illegal. Things will take a very dark turn when the women's families and the local townspeople find out about what's going on. I thought this film was filled with rich and real characters. Plus, the cinematography and vivid colors on screen were exceptional. I will look forward to the next movie of director and co-writer Wanuri Kahiu.
