    I wish I feel asleep watching this movie, sad now that I’ve lost two hours of my life that I could of spent doing something more interesting like painting grass. Save yourself!
  • Awful!

    Could be the worst movie I’ve ever seen. I wouldn't watch it again if you paid me, let alone pay for it myself. Awful!
  • Should never have been made

    Daft allegory, daft idea - and even a flat attempt at some sort of pretentious meaning. Sort of thing a 13-year old film student would make, high, and think was a great idea. Could be an amateur play. JOG ON!
  • Great Film!

    Very artistic and cleverly made, cast is great especially Jennifer Lawrence. Very different to the average films you see today.

    You need to be prepared to think the whole way through. One reviewer said that if you like Baby Driver then this won't be for you. To that guy I say "for shame", Baby Driver is a great movie, and so is this.
  • Very good Story

    I’m glad this film has been made as a film and not as a box set for TV: as a film it is enough; a concise and beautifully told story; an alegory of the most infamous story human beings have ever contracted to subvert themselves with. Although I would contest earlier stories were equally subversive (‘Gilgamesh‘ for example). The screenplay illustrates perfectly what piety is all about. Darren Aranovsky has chosen a perfect theme – well done! bravo! – to illustrate the woes around us today (and forever as far back as human beings go in fact), the futility of the way we all behave when collected in numbers greater than two. The socially mediocre who frequent social media for instance? Those who enter mother’s (!) beautiful house. There is so much more subtext in here than that of course, but I don’t want to spoil it for the mature of mind. Beware those who like gun fights and car chases. If Baby Driver is your thing then this is not for you. Badem’s character could be a duplicate of the being Olaf Stapleton’s protagonist discovers at the end Star Maker.
  • Marmite, best sums it up

    Be prepared to be enthralled, or appalled. It isn't an easy watch, but I thought it was utterly fascinating, the film held my attention with a vice-like grip throughout. It starts off as a quirky film before pivoting to mind bogglingly weird - in a good way, as far as I’m concerned. On the other hand, the person I went to see the film with thought it was awful and it completely freaked them out.

    This is a full on creation type story. Lawerence is Earth or Mother Earth perhaps and I think Bardem is god. Que creation destruction, population explosion in the house and the pillaging of the house/planet etc. There’s even Adam, Eve and their sons one who kills... I think the whole religion and people ruining earth thing is pretty clear when you compare the bookends of the film where we see god creating earth/house/Mother Earth again. The wheel turns as it were. It’s fantastic but I don’t think it’s what people will be expecting. Don’t expect the quiet quiet BANG that’s popular in horror these days. As an atheist I don’t care for any of that religious nonsense.
