Synopsis:
In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears in visionary filmmaker Alex Garland's feverish, shape-shifting new horror film.

The most effective horror in years - Men review by PB

Spoiler Alert
21/10/2022

If you've seen Alex Garland's other features (Ex Machina and Annihilation) you'll know Garland's ability to subvert genre and create unnerving scenes, and to be hugely original. This is on another level. 

The first hour or so is a slow build as the central character encounters the creepy locals in a tiny Cotswold's village. Everything is a little off, every line of dialogue laced with a hint of menace, and backed up by a suitably strange off kilter soundtrack. Then the locals start to ramp things up. You may think you know where this will end, but you really don't and the final sequence is jaw dropping. 

If you're a horror fan who's seen it all, I can't recommend this highly enough. It's quite something.  And you'll be dissecting all the allegory and meaning long after the credits have rolled.

Puzzle - Men review by HM

Spoiler Alert

No idea what this film is saying to us. Some kind of anti-men thing. A load of nonsense. Porno horros at the end for no apparent reason.

When you're thinking you're not feeling - Men review by DM

Spoiler Alert
06/10/2022

An artistic puzzle that takes a bunch of disparate elements (the Green Man, guilt, sexual politics, isolation) and stirs them in a bucket hoping that a story will emerge. Is everything in the lead character's head? Can't be, as we see scenes where she's not present. So is it real? Clearly not -- almost all the locals look the same. So it's a fantasy where we know they're the same person in some way but she doesn't: a recipe for detaching the viewer from the character. At the end I was thinking mostly about the special effects. The writer/director said he wanted it to provoke thoughts and for viewers to find their own interpretation, but that's been achieved far better in many less tricksy films than this.
