I think ‘revenge fantasy’ is an accurate description. With no guarantee that any of the assholes recently caught-on-camera will face any meaningful consequences, the timing is perfect for a bit of ghostly retribution. As such, Body Cam dishes-out some vicarious justice and a few jolts along the way.
This isn’t the most complex story and the delivery could be taken in the wrong light as being too slow but overall the payoff works and the pacing really isn’t so bad. The cast does well to showcase paranoia and the writing is pretty good. Not a must see but worth the time and bowl of popcorn.
I found this movie version confusing and chaotic. I sometimes had the feeling that I was watching a new episode of “Kingsman” for young viewers. I didn’t fully understand the principle of the time bubble and was amazed bout how Artemis could unravel everything so quickly (But yes, extremely intelligent. Right?).
Although “A good woman is hard to find” is a fairly conventional thriller that doesn’t deviate from the standard rules of the genre, there are still some elements that make the film rise above average. There’s the admirable acting of Sarah Bolger. A woman who has to deal with the loss of her husband on the one hand and then realises that he actually lived a different life.
“Come to Daddy” is a quirky, somewhat strange thriller with very aggressive scenes and full of insanity. Revealing too much isn’t recommended. Best to start watching this movie without knowing too much, such that the experience will be decidedly surprising.
While The Painted Bird tells a compelling story (based on a Jerzy Kosiński novel), it is also relentlessly sombre and frequently horrifying. It’s the kind of film that leaves the viewer emotionally drained and one most will be content to experience just once. But love it or hate it – I can’t imagine much middle ground – nobody is likely to forget it.
