Dhogs

Post by WraithApe » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:39 pm

A film where the audience is implicated in the act of viewing. Haneke-lite. Some clever ideas, but it doesn't quite pull it off for me. It lacks the subtlety of something like Cache, and feels too disjointed (though in fairness, there is a good reason for this.) 6/10

Well acted enough but just a bit dull and not really as clever as it thinks it is.

Plus when you need to loo but want to stay for the whole film, having title cards for each act it an added form of torture.

4/10

Didn't enjoy this... the message was good but I didn't enjoy the way this film was put together.

I get the message this movie was trying to deliver but feel it could have made it more interesting. Also by showing us an audience watching the samething as us and then later saying
Spoiler:
Actually no, it's a computer game
thats why it's a badly told narrative was just lazy and annoying and reminded me of Funny games but with less shocking parts. I picked some real turds for discovery screens this year.
