    The Boy Behind the Door

    ★★★½

    Both of these boys gave such genuinely touching performances, which really elevated it for me, and made it that much harder to watch. It’s definitely gripping but very short and I feel like it would benefit from some more setup in the beginning. 

    It also does the thing I hate where it opens with a tense scene and then goes to “six hours earlier,” but to make it even worse the six hours earlier part was like 4 minutes long. And then we’re already at the scene that opened the movie.

    This started out really great, I loved the chemistry between the leads and their relationship was so sweet. I expected there to be some conflict obviously but his assholery really came out of nowhere for me. I mean, she’s shitty in her own ways absolutely, but his confrontation with her outside of his bar was honestly so cruel. Like what the fuck??

    I would’ve given this a higher rating if it wasn’t legitimate emotional trauma for me lmao. I just have a yucky taste in my mouth now 😐

    After Michéle is assaulted (the first time), she cleans the broken dishes off the floor, throws away the dress she was wearing, takes a bubble bath, and orders sushi.

    After I was assaulted, I asked him to drive me back to my dorm,…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    But is there really a witch?, I thought, after first reading about this film over a year ago. I was mostly expecting this to be an ambiguous tale where the titular evil-doer was metaphorical, an approach that's not unfamiliar to arthouse films of today. But my inner darkness was absolutely delighted to discover this was not the case.

    A mere 10 minutes in (maybe, I was too entranced to look at my watch) and we're witness to the stringy-haired, naked…
