    ★★★★

    with gerald's game, flanagan has quite markedly surpassed his previous work. works superficially as a horrific story of survival and on another level wherein victims of trauma can approach and overcome events in their past. while the epilogue might sting a little tonally, it's the most important part of the film.

    Aaaaaaaah!

    ★★½

    a gross out oddity, a nature doc, a silent film, a degrading satire. go in with an open mind.

    ★★★★★

    kubrick's 2001 filtered through a neveldine/taylor sensibility. the tree of life bastardised at the hands of vulgar auterism. who even knew besson was capable of this; super woman who reinvents knowledge and being as we know it all the while dispensing mere male obstacles with minimal bother. johansson is one of the best working actresses today, she arcs from truly terrified, although somehow not quite entirely at the mercy of her captors - to ruthlessly efficient non human, 99% a robot in all but physiology and a rare inkling of merciful humanity. perfect.
