“You are a beast still cloaked in man’s flesh.”
Brutally beautiful on the eyes but the heart that drives the story never beat for me.
The comedy horror gore of TREMORS. The bug stomping of ALIENS. The military satire of DOCTOR STRANGELOVE. And all the acting chops of your favorite TV tween drama.
At its best with the propaganda news reel satire that was a premonition of the 24 hour news cycle and click bait internet age.
Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) likes three things: making out with Fran (Eliza Gonzalez), sucking on a vape pen, and robbing innocent senior citizens of their free will and life savings.
That sounds really fun, but this lacks the drama of GONE GIRL and the fun of BABY DRIVER so the thrill is gone because the characters are cold and calculating without being interesting or alluring. Nobody wins.
