What are people saying?

  • Andre's rating of the film The Pledge

    An almost plotless slice of rural Gothic, this may be the most ghoulish movie ever made, with its obsession with decay and the actual process of burial (Greenaway did work here). The odd thing is the humanity that enters in our (well characterized) anti - heroes quest to give a dignified burial to their unsavory comrade. Not for all tastes, but legitimately jolting, and with a Padre Padrone level of realism
