    The only part I liked about this movie is the concept. It’s pretty ridiculous how The Hunger Games completely copied it and I really can’t believe people just let that slide. It’s cool to see how this inspired other stuff like The Purge, Squid Game, etc. Despite the fact that at its time it was an original concept, it is still a really, really shitty movie.

    The acting is painfully bad, it felt like I was cringing multiple times every scene. Paired…

    One of the best screenplays I’ve seen in a very long time, I kind of can’t believe this was written by a 24 year old. Everything fell into place beautifully as the story progressed, and the exact right amount of time was spent between the three stories. The murder scene at the beginning is fantastic, and it only gets better from there. 

    The positive thoughts I have on the movie so greatly outweigh the only negative one, but I’m need…

    I watched this movie for the first time about a year and a half ago. Then I rewatched it about six months ago. Then tonight. It feels like each time I watch it the messages become more and more relevant.

    ★★★½

    Patient, calculated, and at times incredibly unpredictable. The practical effects and cinematography were both great, but what really stood out was how influential the concept clearly was. To me it’s a slightly weaker The Face of Another, but it’s still very impressive. My favorite scene by far was the opening, mostly because of how much it went against my expectations. Usually, when a pretty woman in a ‘60s thriller is being followed at night, we feel fear for her. But…

    Paul Dano has said that this movie, a movie about kids taking a vow of silence, is one of his favorites. Kinda reminds me of a certain character in Little Miss Sunshine.
