Dropped in on a friend’s history of film class this time instead of vice versa- more favorable opinion this time? Problematic fave?? Ending & twist still DUMB as hell
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
absolutely nails the 'this giant ancestral house is rotting around us Exactly like our crumbling family reputation but we can't Just Leave, Exactly like how we Cannot Escape Our Sins' of gothic horror/gothic romance. gorgeous & for a 2 hr long movie it moves along very smoothly!
my big problem w/ it is that it cast abuse victims & mentally ill women as villains, male villain wasn’t held as culpable as the female one etc etc etc. it was superbly put together…
