    Hereditary

    ★★★½

    I’m disappointed (man, this happened a lot lately). I’m usually easily scared (in the stressful, suspendue sense) but this did almost nothing to me as far as fear is concerned. It’s a beautiful enigmatic and ceeepy family drama, but even though I really love that it doesn’t rely on jumps scares, it has got a serious rhythm issue in my opinion. It let met rest too much between scary moments for me to get really stressed. Too many sloooow travellings…

    I’m so disappointed. It is visually beautiful, but the scenario is so bad...

    Oh Lord.. How am I even supposed to write 5 sentences about this ? Well, it's bad, I don't care at all for this ridiculous plot. I didn't give it a worse rating because I save room for movies with very offensive content, or really bad acting, but still... I forced myself through this one.. And none of the songs manage to make it better.
    This disrespects the original movie so much it hurts.

    I had heard a lot about it and was not diappointed. I loved the mockumentary format, it's not something that you see a lot in a feature film. The ironic and absurd houmour had me laughing more that once.
    It's quite simple actually, but it's well done and it's refreshing. I think I'll have to show it to some friends to get their thoughts on it.
