Double crosses, adultery, murder, mistaken identity, and revenge ensue when a mysterious power player and his sultry wife hire a disgraced Los Angeles property broker to discreetly market and sell their Malibu villa.
It's sick and unreliable. It's not in any way a nice view. After one hour or so, it makes you wish it will soon end. It doesn't. In fact it goes on and on, getting worse and worse - and it's fascinating and brilliantly acted by Keoghan, Kidman and Farrell.
Yorgos is quite a sick man and I'm not sure what he wants to do. However, 5 days after watching it, it's still growing on me and several scenes will haunt me for a long time. I'm not sure it's all good, but it does something with me. It leaves marks. Also, it holds the most authentic portrayal of medical care and hospital environments I've ever seen in a film.
Letterboxd: Mårten Larsson (Morten_5).
