gorgeous indie science fiction film
24 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Bokeh starts with a young couple, Jenai (The Guest's Maika Monroe) and Riley (Matt O'Leary), on vacation in Iceland, where they make out under waterfalls, soak in hot springs, and drink in the scenery on walking tours. Then, just a few minutes into the film, a mysterious green light pulses in the night sky, and Jenai and Riley wake up to discover that everyone else is gone, and they're alone in Reykjavik. apocalypse stories let us revel in the idea of replacing all the burdens of modern society with simpler, more visceral problems, like avoiding zombie bites or fighting off road-warrior gangs. But most apocalypses keep the survivors pretty busy. There's some powerful emotional impact in the idea that this extreme situation pushes them both to their own extremes, stripping away their personalities until they each reach a basic level. But in practice, since they come from such a tabular rasa starting point, it's hard to track whether Riley and Jenai are really changing as people.It's not important why everyone disappeared; what's important is which emotions the characters foreground for themselves, as they embrace their new circumstances. There's a lot of fantasy in the usual end-of-the-world scenarios, but there's a lot of horror there as well. Bokeh asks which of those reactions is more appropriate, and how they both play out. It's a gentle story, as apocalypses go, but even without monsters, it becomes a painful, emotional question of strength and survival.
