A movie usually immediately tells you what it's about. Some prolong introduction. In my opinion, the longer a film can conceal it's motive -while simultaneously gluing your eyes to the screen and grabbing your attention by the throat- the better the film. TCOAL is a great film. Not a horror film as advertised. Not even a suspense film. Indeed, if the viewer were lucky enough to have had NO introduction to the film; e.g., via trailers, blurbs, reviews, etc., one would have no idea of TCOAL's intent until the very final scene. This appears to have frustrated, angered, etc., most of <more>
the COMMENTERs of this film. It stunned and enthralled me. You may never see another film like this one. I, for one, hope to.
Its clearly not for everyone, and yes there are some weaknesses during the movie but overall and incredible debut. Ever saw a movie about a child who could possible be a future dictator like Hitler, Mussolini... ? how could his childhood looked like and how where his parents and his surrounding like ? well this movie gives you a idea of how it might have been.the cinematography,camera work and acting are great and theatrical. but One of the most important things about the movie is the score by Scott Walker, which gives the movie a lot of tension and some sort of coolness.Just be warned:Its a <more>
very slow and sometimes incomprehensible movie.Enjoy !
Wow. That was amazing.The story revolves around a wealthy American or citizens of the world, as The Mother calls them family at the end of WW1 in France. The movie centers on the kid, Prescott. He's not a "normal" kid, I guess. He's been acting up ever since they moved to another town. He takes French lessons from the teacher, Ada played excellently by Stacy Martin , which The Father disapproves of, because he can't speak the language himself and he feels The Father works for the American government, right under President Jimmy Carter, so he goes on a lost of work <more>
trips, and he doesn't really care about getting to know the people of the town as much as The Mother does.At the beginning of the film the kid got caught throwing rocks at the church members "A Sign of Thing to Come and the movie just goes from there. The film is divided in chapter in a really cool way First Tantrum, Second Tantrum etc. . The whole film is stylized really old school, e.g there's an overture at the beginning and etc. That brings me to the score, oh my god. The score is amazing, it's very unsettling. Quite possibly the best score I've heard this year, Knight of Cups is the only competition.All of the performances are fantastic, especially Tom Sweet as Prescott, Bèrènice Bejo as The Mother and Stacy Martin as Ada, or The Teacher. Robert Pattinson is great too as a friend of the family and widower Charles, in the few scenes he shows up in.I can't believe this is Brady Corbet's directorial debut, because the film is directed so well. I knew he's a great actor Funny Games U.S. , I had no idea he could direct. I cannot wait for his next project because this is one of the better directed films I've seen in a while. Everything felt unsettlingly natural and real, the cinematography was fantastic and all the actors were great, even the kid. Or especially the kid.Oh yeah, by the way, this is not a horror movie, it has some horror-ish and surreal although it never goes full Eraserhead or Enemy elements and it's very unsettling but it's not a horror movie. I think the horror-ish stuff lies in the things we don't see, or the things to come. Oh, and no spoiler but the ending was so amazing, holy crap.This is the third, possibly second, best movie I've seen so far this year and I'm hoping for Oscar buzz for this film at the end of the year, but it's not likely that will happen though. 9/10. It's excellent.
The film is clearly influenced by some the greatest directors in terms of style. The music is almost old school experimental and very striking. The acting is excellent. The environment is extremely realistic. Remarkable achievement on a relatively low budget.The story and plot is challenging and requires full concentration to see into it's message and meaning. It it also like watching part one of a trilogy, There is lots of going up and down stairs in steady tracking shots that at times almost feel Escheristic.The film will appeal to those who enjoy watching directors that attempt to <more>
paint on a cinematic canvas and who appreciate challenging films.
A flawed but powerful and very promising debut (by summerssimon)
A flawed but very promising directorial debut from Brady Corbet. The plot meanders a little, promising more than it ultimately manages to deliver. There are, though, plenty of great moments as the film unfolds and the increasingly oppressive atmosphere of isolation, alienation and menace intensifies. Scott Walker's soundtrack is gloriously weird and over the top, and is used to particularly powerful effect in the set piece sequences that open and close the film. The acting is uniformly excellent. Tom Sweet delivers a fine performance as The Boy, whose increasingly violent tantrums are a <more>
sign of grim things to come. This is an intelligent and subtle film. A very good debut, which falls just short of being great.
