A very stately, elegant, strikingly photographed ghost picture and Farrow is always good in this type of role. It’s too languid though and never quite seems to settle on what picture it wants to be. Great ending.
During the film, Udo Kier once says: The next time you use a cliche, don’t be so stupid. Well, the movie should have heeded its own advice. This thinly veiled and sci-fi tinged story of a Brasilian village resisting occupation and the evils of consumerism, capitalism, politicians and what have you is forced, desperate and obvious as they come. The Most Dangerous Game subplot is especially cringey. Nothing here but political confirmation bias with everything thrown at the wall and nothing sticking. It also somehow manages to be boring. Has one of the all time great head-shots on film, so not completely useless.
