The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance.
Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
Balancing between feverish dreamlike hallucinations of a tormented past and a grim disoriented reality, the grizzled Joe--a traumatised Gulf War veteran and now an unflinching hired gun who lives with his frail elderly mother--has just finished yet another successful job. With an infernal reputation of being a brutal man of results, the specialised in recovering missing teens enforcer will embark on a blood-drenched rescue mission, when Nina, the innocent 13-year-old daughter of an ambitious New York senator, never returns home. But amidst half-baked leads and a desperate desire to shake off his shoulders the heavy burden of a personal hell, Joe's frenzied plummet into the depths of Tartarus is inevitable, and every step Joe takes to flee the pain, brings him closer to the horrors of insanity. In the end, what is real, and what is a dream? Can there be a new chapter in Joe's life when he keeps running around in circles?Written by
The Scottish director, Lynne Ramsay, made a very quiet and disturbing film.
Most of Lynn's movies have that quiet side, as in a movie, "We need to talk about Kevin". and that's what gives her films a magical visual character, and make you enjoy it. this film talk about the "Joaquin Phoenix" the killer hack, who tries to save a little girl, and lives with his old mother, and very fun.
The basic story of the film is simple, but beyond the details, colors, and tranquility, there is another world of psychological and historical exhaustion suffered by Joaquin. the stages of his childhood, which was somehow harsh, and created this man. Joaquin swung between the desire to live and suicide for salvation, and it lasts for the duration of the film, even the last scene, Ramsey's making a moment, that Joaquin shoots his head, then we find out he was fancy dying.
The film makes the viewer tense of psychologically and visually, and that's its magnificence. addition to the many details created by the actors and their dialogues, especially "Joaquin, Judith".
The film is great, I loved it.
