    ★★½

    Downhill, the American remake of 2014’s Swedish film Force Majeure is kind of a mixed bag. Before seeing it, I kept reading how awful it was. After seeing it, I can definitely say it’s not awful, but it isn’t very good either. For starters, remaking the original film was already a bad idea.

Either way, I’d say it’s worth your time. Even if it could’ve been better, I can’t say no to a fun time at the movies.

Robert Eggers created one of the most engaging and perfect movies of the year. With the help of career defining performances by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, the most beautiful cinematography I’ve seen all year and a narrative that will make your jaw drop to the floor, I’m very confident in saying that…
