There are a lot of weird decisions in this one but I can't say it doesn't work.
I don't normally go for rigidly formalistic cinematic exercises but for all of the filmmaker's obsessive attention to period detail (and the general humorlessness that goes along with being that type of director), he didn't forget to make this movie tense and scary as hell. Plus I love goats!
At first it's a bit self-consciously "haute-Showgirls," but I was having fun. As it transitions into "nightmare-Showgirls" and finally just "oh aren't I naughty," it becomes increasingly tedious and dull. The very literal-minded final act would have been much more interesting had a bit been left to the imagination; I don't often call a film "gratuitous" but this was it.
Lovely music and production design though.
