Emma Stone is phenomemal - Poor Things review by PT

Spoiler Alert
12/03/2024

If your a fan of Yorgos Lanthimos and his unconventional films, this one is the auteur director at the top of his game. Amazing production sets add to the fantasy feel of the film. It is a funny, wacky , sexy , dramatic and off the wall masterpiece.

Dafoe and Ruffalo are superb, especially the latter who is like a cad from the old British Ealing comedies. Emma Stone on recieving her Oscar for the role thanked Yorgos for the role of a lifetime as Bella Baxter. It really is a consummate performance from her , playing a number of roles in one character on her journey in growing into her body age throughout the film. Her acting is a pleasure to witness. Her performance really is a wow experience.

Poor me - Poor Things review by cr

Spoiler Alert
31/03/2024

I knew that this was going to be weird after reading all the reviews which were all positive but here comes the but...

Not that weird!

I wasnt a fan of the favourite which is this directors previous film and was similar in its over rated reception.

This is nearly 2.5 hours of oddness dressed up in emanciptation with the result being its virtually critic proof. My main problem, same as the favourite, is the annoying discordant background music which runs through the film.

I am sure a lot people have said they like it when they havent.

A real slog to sit through i mostly hit the fast forward button.

But emma is good it looks amazing and its unique. If you like this director you may like it.

Not recommended.

Pretty, but far too long - Poor Things review by DM

Spoiler Alert
04/04/2024

The book is ambiguous (we don't know if Bella is really a Frankensteinian creature) and set in the real world. The movie is unambiguous, linear, and set in a steampunk world, or a kind of cosplayers' 19th century, that makes you wonder what is supposed to be fantastic and what people accept as normal. It's quite similar to 1960s "hip" picaresque movies, the only difference being that it's a young woman going through sexual experimentation rather than a young man. You get the point of each sequence long before the director thinks you have. The one point I thought there was a plot twist coming (this is a world in which brains can be transplanted, after all) it fails to happen, probably because the scriptwriter didn't think of it. So: read the novel instead.
