I’m in a high risk category for having my life ruined by bleach blonde Robert Pattinson*. Man better get a Best Actor in my lifetime because he is out here, earning that shit.
The haunted house was truly a thing of beauty. Perfect use of neon lights and a maximalist set that made total sense in the context of the film. Between this and the dye packs during the robbery, this is some seriously impressive use of colour.
Safdies got me REAL GOOD with the hospital twist, too, Jesus Christ. Like a hellish version of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, where the playlist is just the itemization of Connie’s dogshit decisions. Probably a new addition to my all time faves.
*for the love of god, please don’t be that person who read this as an endorsement. Connie is an unequivocal bastard, this is very evident throughout The Course Of The Film.
