Tense, bleak and gritty, just the way I like it. Memorable images and brilliant performances from Pearce and Pattinson. Probably the most underrated film of 2014, so far. My friend who I saw this with found the score so annoying that he did not enjoy the film, and while I can see where he is coming from with the score, it certainly didn't hinder my experience.
I was initially nervous to go to this after hearing that it was a bit of a chore to get through for some. Well I really, really enjoyed it. One of the most beautiful looking films I have ever seen and every performance is excellent. The setting was easy to get lost in and there are so many excellent scenes. Melisa Sözen is stunning, performance wise and in the looks department. Haluk Bilginer gives the best performance I have seen…
