note to self: run away as fast as you can if you find yourself living inside one of these apartment buildings.
POLANSKI's mise-en-scene is as good as it gets however i think he does not dive as deep as he could.
POLANSKI's best part within the production (in which it seems he did all) is as the charming and enchanting lead.
his performance perfectly tackles the extreme transitions needed in the most naturalistic way possible.
an exciting and intriguing movie that fails to explore deeper and further the ideas it so clearly portrays.
scary and smart this film is as well crafted as every other movie but unlike many and based on a screenplay that homages and pays tributes to many genre classics JAMES WAN playful and resourceful directing makes the whole thing a dynamic and electric picture that never stops haunting you.
stumbling while swinging between physical, raunchy comedy and over-the-top melodrama this film never lacks ideas, however the writing must have been a problem from the start since the movie fails to feel as a whole maybe because of its many turns and twists; nevertheless it is an enjoyable experience with many [maybe too many] things to keep you busy enough [the production design team had some fun with those sweet animated stories and the very memorable photoshopped pictures].
