Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Come for the abidingly mysterious plot, stay for Hagan's bewitching performance.
Fresh: The film doesn't always work as a genre exercise, but it's a winner as a character study, in large part because of how committed Hagan is to playing Janie's derangement. Casting directors in search of the offbeat should take note.
Fresh: Sun Choke is, in keeping with a protagonist who comes in more than one 'version', a disorienting, dissociative affair, reminiscent in parts of Yorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth (2009) - and all beautiful, tense, hallucinatory and deeply disturbing.
It is a fantastic film. Character development was brilliant. Shot beautifully; lighting,composition etc.. It tells a complex story of a fractured mind, with the viewer piecing it all together. There is an effortless brutality to this film that won't soon leave you after it ends. Unlike anything I've seen before.
Wish we had chosen another
Don't expose yourself to this. There's very little storytelling here. Lots of shock-value-oriented scenes and images. Torture scenes, graphic sex, and bloody, violent deaths. No payoff at the end in terms of an explanation or narrative conclusion. A sick film. I hated it.
This film is eerie and astonishing throughout with outstanding performances. The cinematography, editing and score lends a clear and precise tone throughout. Sarah Hagen gives an outstanding performance. I highly recommend!
