    "We're never really dead or alive; we just exist."

    Do you like that particular kind of movies which take a bit time to sink in, then once you get into them, you feel intrigued? And after a while, you realize they are not what they seem to be, that is, you are being played. Your mind is getting metaphorically screwed. "Mind-fuck movies" is how we describe them. After you finish watching, you keep pondering about answers, you think about them,…

    ★★½ Rewatched by Jaime Rebanal 30 Aug, 2015

    This may probably go down as one of the worst rewatches that I've ever had in a long time. First time I saw Martha Marcy May Marlene about a year back I remember having admired what sort of an atmosphere it managed to create around Olsen's character but suddenly all the wonders that shrouded me on that one viewing all seem to have faded away as surprisingly I was actually struggling to make it through the 102-minute length.

    For the…

    Very unsettling. Interesting to see a film showing the side of the followers of a cult, rather than focusing on the leaders. Obviously inspired by the Manson family. Great cast and acting.

    Sometimes I wish I could join a cult. But then I remember I'm already part of a militant one man penis cult.

    A moody, slow and atmospheric study in paranoia and tension that's not for everyone. Designed to leave you as haunted as its main character.

    Pretty interesting film, didn't like the way it was structured, I would rather prefer it in chronological order. Great ending, though.

    Ever wondered what it'd be like if Jeff Nichols deliberately set out to make the most boring movie of all time? Well now you can WONDER NO MORE

    Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

    7/10

    Sometimes people confuse a great great great performance with a great great great movie. This is a great great great performance in a fine film, but not a great one. I remember 2011 and how people hyped this movie and me looking at it and thinking that it couldn't be that good, and it wasn't! It is what it is, and those who challenge this as a comparison and some sort of "fort" against…

    This drama about an escapee from a cult/commune plays more like a horror film. Each cut threatens to find our heroine (Elizabeth Olsen, very solid) trapped back on the proverbial ranch, which lends the entire film a deeply unsettling feel. Olsen’s performance is largely non-verbal, but her nervous tics and constant backward glances make her anxiety palpable. “Fear… makes you truly present,” one character states, and that couldn’t feel more appropriate than in this film where the past is so…

    I've checked this out of the library on more than one occasion, but never got around to watching it because the cult aspect scared me off. Now that I've finally seen it, the movie was fascinating mostly because the woman* does not tell her sister** she was in a cult, just that she had a bad boyfriend. So that made the reactions by her family to the after-affects of her trauma that much more interesting and intense, which made for…
