Muse ★★

My 2nd film at the 39th Cambridge Film Festival 

A very cool and evocative opening title sequence teases a tense psychological thriller but what we actually get is an extremely slow placed and unfortunately profusely boring study of agoraphobia and depression. It’s not all bad, as the cinematography and score work together well to set a very bleak and constrictive tone and mood, but when your protagonist is as narcissistic and annoying as Luca Zielig then you can’t rely on his pitiful musings alone to get you through. I wanted to like it more but this one was a drag.
