First time in a while I've been refreshed with an actually semi-smart horror movie that also doesn't skimp on the thrills. It's a shame that the sequels went full-blown gorefest. 8/10
It's Pulp Fiction. What else is there to say?
I really liked this movie. Although some of the plot development I thought was sort of questionable, it has great acting, beautiful cinematography and a very profound script, as well as touching and absorbing moments. 8.5/10.
I was very much blown away by this movie. I cannot name a single weak element of it. The performances were phenomenal, not least by Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir, who gave one of the most natural and beautiful child performances I've been blessed to see in a long time. Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson was also a standout, with beautiful moments of subtlety that show his prowess as an actor. The film used the country of Iceland to its advantage, with some absolutely beautiful cinematography, with many of the shots and scenes living up to the movies name. Extraordinary directing and writing also show how amazing this movie truly is, but the most prominent thing was sound design and score. The soft whistling tones of violins that play throughout the movie create an almost astoundingly haunting atmosphere, and with a both beautiful and chilling score, it's quite alluring to just close your eyes and feel it all wash over you. Overall, I'm being completely genuine when I say this may be the best movie of 2020, and will hopefully be a contender for Best Picture. This is a movie which I recommend everyone and anyone watch. 9.8/10.
I walked into this movie with relatively high expectations, considering how brilliant the more recent A24 productions have been. In the first ten minutes of the film, I was pretty underwhelmed, and while I thought it was technically brilliant, to me it seemed like it was going to be a slightly-above-average coming of age story. However, they then went crashing in, zero fucks given, went straight for the jugular, and turned this into one of the most heartfelt, dramatic and emotionally intense cinema experiences I have had in a long time. I was completely blown away, and left the cinema almost awestruck. The cinematography was outstanding, and the performances were absolutely amazing from every cast member. But what really separated thois movie and made it so amazing was how real the characters felt. Throughout the film, mainly because of the brilliant writing and outstanding performances, you fall in love with each and every character, and they feel like ordinary people. The only real weak elements of the film were the score, which I felt took me out of my immersion in certain situations, as well as the runtime and slightly underdeveloped story for one of the characters (however this was most likely for thematic reasons.) Despite this, I was still blown away by the film. It's one of the best cinema experiences I've ever had and I'm so glad that this was the first film I watched in cinemas post quarantine. I highly recommend this.
