I write movies and write about movies
MY THOUGHTS ON ZONE OF INTEREST:
Much like Klimov invites you to COME AND SEE, Glazer invites you to Come and LISTEN
The film employs horror elements that are enhanced by a terrifying peripheral auditory experience unlike anything I’ve ever seen or heard.
The sounds of terror are nonstop. NON STOP. I am still thinking about it it sends shivers down my damn spine.
The Zone of Interest is a masterclass in subtly. A truly disturbing and fucked up piece of work.
This movie is pure insanity. Disturbing as hell, don’t let this marketing fool you. With that said I’m giving it 4 stars. This film challenges you to think about how individuals and the media sexualizes young girls, especially the adultification of young Black girls.
I really don’t care what you think about this film before even seeing it. You watch films and consume media where women and young girls are sexualized every day, but when a film from a Black woman director shines a light on the issue and makes you sit in your discomfort, you want to boycott. F**k outta here!
