I have watched a thousand horror movies and very few have made a lasting impact on my imagination. Braid, with its psychotropic imagery and disturbing themes, looped incessantly in my mind like the dream that youre determined to understand before it fades from waking life. Like only the best horror movies, the film refuses to tie itself up in a satisfying, Hollywood way. This is no 90 minute escapism, no rollercoaster that ends with you safely on the ground. You will be trapped in their gilded rooms while these dark beauties pour you tea and stick needles into your fingernails. Im writing this with hopes I can tie up the tangles with my own words but I suspect I have a new lodger in my brain. She is in a white satin dress, flecked with blood and she plays my nightmares on repeat against a sea-foam wall. Good horror never really leaves you, and in Braid, nobody gets to leave.
I enjoyed this movie but was extremely frustrated with what was very obviously sexual and romantic tension between the two "best friends". I understand why they didn't act on it because the mother just lost her husband but it would've been much more reasonable to refer to it in some way. It was insulting to make us believe they didn't have feelings for each other that weren't platonic.
