After a fairly promising opening, Black Rock flushes itself down the crapper with ridiculous contrivances, annoying actions, and the worst acted, least terrifying villain I've seen in quite some time.
I typically dig these kinds of survival thrillers, but what the hell? I'm also a fan of Mark Duplass' writing, so doubly what the hell? It seems like a lot of what happens is meant to be a twist on clichés or upend expectations, but it didn't. I assume there is also a whole other level of symbolism about women's struggle against a patriarchal society, and the circle of violence and abuse. But ultimately it was just a bunch of silly bullshit.
