Every bit as bad as advertised
Written and directed by Jennifer Kent (Babadook), it was described as a revenge film. And seeing how we've gotten some AMAZING female written, female directed and female led revenge films in the past few years, I figured this was going to be a solid watch. Let me just say it's more than that on every single level.
It's exceptionally rare that a film comes along and earns from me the highest possible grade, but Luce is one of those rare films that absolutely blew me away. So much so that I'm still not entirely sure what I just watched and I'm unclear as to whether I'll have it figured out after a 2nd or a 3rd viewing. The last time a movie made me think think hard and had me second guessing this much, it was Inception.
Unlike Inception, Luce doesn't generate thought through trickery or complex science fiction concepts. It does it by showing you scenarios and then making you ask yourself what you think you just saw and interpret what the characters are doing.
Film of the year thus far
I will often measure a film's quality by how much it makes me feel. And boy does The Farewell bring the feels. One of the best films of the year
Good in a bad way or bad in a good way?
