That was very much a love-it or hate-it film back in the day on the IMDb forums; I think the majority thought it really great but there was certainly a vocal minority that felt it was so heavy-handed and over the top that it was laughable.adwest wrote: ↑April 1st, 2021, 7:29 pmThis has been on my list for so long but the subject matter looks so difficult--just what you're saying--that I keep putting it off until I feel mentally prepared.

Perhaps not the best movie for relaxing after a long day, this is an incredibly well-made tense-as-heck movie that manages to create an uncomfortable viewing experience (and that's not criticism, but praise). This is really good stuff, but man, did I pick the wrong day to watch this.
My own take was that it was godawful and it made me angry. This may have something to do with having a close family situation that is at least vaguely similar, I don't know. And I have mixed feelings about the director's work overall, so I'm not eager to check it out again.
