CLEVER AND TENSE DRAM - Most Beautiful Island review by GF

Spoiler Alert
16/05/2018

The first part of this film is fairly routine - a young Spanish immigrant to New York without legal status is struggling to make ends meet in a series of dead end jobs like babysitting and dressing up in a chicken costume to promote a fast food shop.

Her friend Olga then invites her to a well paid job and THAT is where the movie takes an unexpected turn. The twist is clever and the tension is suddenly racked up. I should point out that this denouement is not entirely original - a film with a very similar twist came out several years ago, although I won't it spoil things for future viewers by naming it!

That said, if you want to be surprised by a well made indie movie, this is certainly one to watch.

Have You Any Phobias? - Most Beautiful Island review by BG

Spoiler Alert
13/08/2018

If you like offbeat indie films the type director Jim Jarmusch makes, you probably might enjoy this film too. A common theme in Jarmusch's films, is that of the immigrant or foreigner in the US. Most Beautiful Island is similar about a Spanish lady with a tragic past in New York trying to make some money. A friend gives her a chance, but she ends up in a weird Eyes Wide Shut situation. To describe this would be a big spoiler, but a hint is that it involves a contrast between something that looks beautiful against something that is ugly, creepy, and frightening.

This won't appeal to some, but I found it haunted me for a few days.

Well done for trying sonething different! - Most Beautiful Island review by TR

Spoiler Alert
18/08/2018

Ana Asensio has done a great job in fashioning offbeat, creepy, different and sexy! And not a cigarette in sight in some misguided attempt to make someone look 'cool'. This film, and its director and star, are far, far above all of that.
