Sigourney Weaver dribbling and ferociously dunking a basketball is worth the price of admission all by itself.
Went into this hoping to love it, and was well aware of the polarizing views and cult following. But unfortunately was left feeling disgruntled and sour.
I’m usually able to adapt to big visions that alienate most movie-goers but this was far too vague and disjointed for me.
‘Ambitious’ has been the keyword in most of the reviews I have read, and I think what exemplifies that more than anything is the casting, which is what I was most excited…
This is a very special movie, with spectacular performances. It bothers me that it has been mocked in the way it has (unfortunately the twist was spoiled for me over the years), that it took until this day to finally watch because of that.
Light is captured so well in this film, this especially shines through when William Hurt’s character is giving background to Bryce Dallas Howard’s character on her grandfather and what lies beyond the forbidden zone at dusk, the sun is captured marvelously.
Obvious double feature would be to play this alongside with Stalker or maybe The Witch.
