Movie Reviews

Just Interesting

The film addresses a very interesting and distressing topic, but it was not executed masterfully. The performances are good and the story gradually keeps us intrigued, but the work in general doesn't have much of a "pulse". The film spends a long time without going anywhere, and when we think that a climax will arrive and that we will be shocked, predictable or simple things happen.

At least I'll say one thing: The background scene during the end credits is very interesting and a little scary. I think it was the scariest part of the film, but obviously I won't say what it's about here because I don't want to spoil it.

An inquiry into delusion and social pressure

The slow action of the movie surely gave me time to reflect on my opinion on it.

During the movie I found it a cringeworthy but at times disturbing set of cliches about anorexia and cult sects. This is all set against a backdrop of generally overprivileged but emotionally deprived families. Or so the story goes. That bit I found underdeveloped.

I recognised some of the eating disorder behaviours, I have seen them from up close. I also recently watched the Netflix series on the cult leader's playbooks; the movie recites almost verbatim from more than one page of those books.

In the intersection of those you see delusional behaviour under the influence of social pressure. That is discomforting. As a parent the most heart wrenching feeling was the total loss of contact with the child, with dramatic consequences. Again, few subtleties there, so I did not feel much connection to the emotional development. The one exception might be the situation of the principal upon whom it is to decide when to move from signals to action. But she is powerlessly let off the hook.

At times I felt thrown back into the 70s with the slow action, the camera zoom shots, costume and set design. Writing the review I feel that may have been intentional.

There is satire, occasionally, for example when a parent seated on a balcony deck chair in a scene from a series on the most luxurious homes in the world, proclaims he wants children to learn how to consume less.

These examples show how the movie gave me too much time to think about how it was trying to make a point to me, instead of taking me for a ride.

All you need is Faith

Completely opposite to what I watch form long time. It was a great experience to watch a film more connected to our lives. No fake drama no song it was simple thought provoking film. Infact I tried to do this consious eating but it's really very hard at first, so I tried not to eat for straight 20 hours and I was successful in these,in that period of time I was not thinking about food,I was just concentrating on my different stuffs, all though It was a great experience. This film starts with a simple thought provoking questions and ends with a strong belief that all we need is Faith for everything we want, and we need to ask question about some facts that people are blindly following from many centuries. Go watch it once. I was also surprised that people are making cinema about these unknown topics.
