(2015) Darling

I’m really starting to enjoy Lauren Ashley Carter, her acting is wonderfully restrained. Unfortunately this film, albeit quite good, felt too much like a Polanski imitation rather than a respectable nod to his style.

The first time you see some of Polanski’s techniques, especially with his innovative sound design, it’s invigorating. The second time you see them, especially from someone other than the man himself, it feels kind of stale.

I can’t praise this movie for its innovation. It really felt like an incredibly well done film school project. Watch Polanski’s Repulsion back to back with this and you’ll get what I’m talking about.
