    ★★★★★

    That ending. The realisation. The twin fiction, just past, comes into all-too-clear focus with devastating effect. Utterly spellbinding. Heart-wrenching, but wonderful.

    ★★★

    Low concentration fun. I have a soft spot for Ben Stiller and, in this film, he delivers the standard (for me, funny) goods.

    Not to detract from the performances, which are wonderful, the sound design is the real star of Chan-wool Park's excellent 'Stoker'. Intricately constructed, the sound is the silent glue holding everything together. Listen.

    ★★★★

    An emphasis on character studies over action extravaganzas leads to a film that pays repeated watching. A slowly unfolding narrative, it's well worth setting aside an evening for.
