The Eyes of My Mother ★★

Just because you've filmed and lit your production to look like something profound and meaningful, doesn't mean it actually is. This movie uses great/artsy b&w cinematographer to trick you into thinking this "female serial killer for the sake of being a female serial killer" film has more going for it than at face value. No. There is no big, underlying message nor enlightening feminist subtext here. But it's got shock value for all the Guinea Pig fans though. Too bad I'm not one of them. This is as generic as they come script and motivation wise. So generic in fact, that the motivation is nearly lost within said script if any was ever supposed to be. It's a shame, as visually, this film is stunning. But everything else it lacks is simply replaced with pure purpose-deprived frustration.
