Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Magalhaes, a former dancer, uses her expressive eyes and graceful limbs to bring the intimacy and sensuality of her actions to vivid life.
Rotten: Pesce's beautifully photographed but aggressively unpleasant art-house horror film will no doubt have its champions, but it won't find one here.
Fresh: This is what curdled Americana looks like - a Joel-Peter Witkin portfolio come to life and a vision of jus' folks weaned on isolation, madness, and good old Type O.
Fresh: At once briskly and deliberately paced, sustaining a precise narrative clarity even as it seems to flow with the logic of a nightmare, "The Eyes of My Mother" confounds expectations and defies easy categorization.
It's a great movie. Love it. There's no porn, who ever thinks that is crazy. And this same person wouldn't know art if it didn't have the word Crayola written on it. Just a good psychological black and white movie.
If torture porn is your thing, have at it. Oh wait - it's in black and white, it must be art! No. Torture porn. Only a very disturbed human could have brought this into the world. Ugh.
Best of 2016 hands down
It's been quite awhile since an arthouse film has blown me away and left me completely speechless, but not anymore. This is currently my pick for numero uno of 2016.
This film covers, in the darkest ways possible monophobia, the fear of being alone. Now for those of you who aren't black and white fans I still beg you to sit through it. For those of you who aren't fans of arthouse, sit through it. It's not hard.
This film is 100% engaging, traumatic, dark, jaw dropping, and unforgettable. If I could say what this is without spoiling too much, it would be a female take on the story of Ed Gein, who if you don't know was the serial killer who they based the classic films Psycho, Silence Of The Lambs, and Texas Chain Saw Massacre off of.
