Not bad by any means. ScarJo is very good (better than I thought capable, honestly), and it's a gorgeous film, but it's painfully "arty". It's a thinker, and there's no doubt why it never got a wide theatrical release - it's just not very accessible for most audiences.

The first 1/3 of the film is just her finding "victims." We never get her motivations, no questions are answered after about the 1/3 mark, and there might not be 200 words of dialogue in the whole movie.

This might be like reading "The Man In The High Tower." Yes, it's a good work of science fiction but hard to enjoy if you aren't a fan of the specific genre or that type of writing/film making.
I'm kinda disappointed Easy 6 hasn't been back to lambaste us.

Hollywood doesn't seem to get that he's clowning them...

WELL HERE I AM MOTHER****ER!

We'll all just have to agree to disagree, that movie is the kind of intelligent sci-fi this world doesn't have neeearly enough of... kudos to the Scottish film board for putting this out.

By the way, "intelligent" I'm perfectly OK with. This was mostly inaccessible.

But seriously, what does "accessible" have to do with great movies?

If I wanted accessible I would've rented Transformers.

You've gone to an absurd conclusion.

No, not really.

Accessible has nothing to do with how great a movie is or can be.

In fact, I actually chose this movie because it didn't look like mainstream fare... ScarJo being nude repeatedly was just a bonus.

Yes, you did. You took one comment about accessibility and went to Transformers. That's absurd.

But I don't think we're using accessible in the same way. I mean it's not very approachable, easy to get into.

A movie can not be mainstream, while still being accessible to viewers. It can be intelligent while still being accessible. Most audiences, even among the movie-going literate, would find this movie a strange duck. There's very little dialog; there's very little action (and I don't mean bang bang, car go boom, action; I mean very little actually happens); there's a huge amount metaphor; there's also a huge amount of "WTF is going on".

I had no trouble following this movie at all, it was this aliens transformation from cold, murderous otherworldly creature... to becoming somehow enchanted with what it means to be human, it gained a level of compassion and wanted to experience life as we experience it.

Its artsy for sure, but not so high minded that its hard to follow... anyway, this debate is over... I loved it and that's that.

You seem upset that I didn't care for your movie.

I still like you. :-)

There is nothing gained in the journey.

Her character is wasted by scene after scene of her "recruiting" people and by the time she's "in danger" I'm actually cheering for the person after her.

I don't sympathize with her fate - there was no redemption - and I was almost as happy with the ending as I was burning the DVD in my portable grill and watching the smoke rise from that as I told Netflix it was never delivered...
