Autumn Fatigue

We Need To Talk About Kevin

Too beautiful for words... Shame he is far too convincing at being psychotic.

I was somewhat apprehensive about seeing this film. I did my upmost not to read, listen or watch anything about it so I could go in with a completely neutral mindset. Having said this, the words 'distressing' and 'disturbing' seeped into my consciousness. Thankfully, it did not live up to my own hype in that sense. Though a harrowing subject matter, with a deeply provocative, tyrannical son (who lends his name to the story's title) I managed to watch it with some ease and an indescribable enjoyment. Perhaps it says something about me, that I'm desensitised but it's incredible. Beautifully shot (as you can see by the stills, very painterly) and masterfully portrayed by Tilda Swinton's distraught and emotionally tortured mother, John C. Reilly's idealistic and blinkered father, and finally the amazingly named (and equally beautiful) Ezra Miller and his demonic yet seductive son. The disjointed storyline makes for an ever-increasing tension between what you know and what you think you know... So bloody good, in more ways than one.

I think everyone has an odd crush on  John Hawkes, or at least I do. Can't wait for Marcy Marcy May Marlene...
