    A Cure for Wellness

    ★★★½

    Absolutely gorgeous cinematography, set design and imagery. Excellent editing and acting. Atmospheric, slow start and totally crazy, over-the-top ending. I didn't care much for the story. Too convoluted and insane however everything else about this film made it entertaining and even mesmerizing at times.

    Disturbing, poetic, mysterious and intense. Very much like life and death.

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★½

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    ★½

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
