Storyline

While avoiding entirely their family's stormy past - she begins to question how he has managed to mysteriously inherit and keep his grand home. Whether related to the stress permeating the thick air of the home or simply a random occurrence, she also begins to have bizarrely haunting dreams that find her somersaulting out of bed in the night. For his part, Ethan is seemingly preoccupied with drawing parallel lines, and fixating longingly on a painting of a circle of stones on the beach. He loses himself in these habits, so much so that he begins to lose his favorite pen and, possibly, his mind. While wavering on the precipice of sanity, the appearance of a random sinkhole in the backyard becomes a new cause for obsession, for both of them, as well.

Oh dear its another one of those!
5 April 2018 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Apparently this is another of those incredibly arty and sophisticated films that none of us poor proles can understand. Welcoming the stranger beinng taken from the bible and presumably refers to the aliens in the film - really?

The film was a complete borefest from beginning to end. The acting , what there was of it - not much just lots of long stares and supposedly meaningful incestuous looks - lots of things thrown at us from alien abduction to matricide.

I oft hear the reviewers who are so up their own bum they wear their ass for a hat say that the film leaves you to decide what it was all about - No I dont buy that horse manure , I am afraid that is what ass-hat brigade roll out when even they cannot actually explain what the whole thing was all about - It was not artful , it was not particularly well acted and it was nothing more than an exercise in self indulgent pseudo-intellectual celluloid self aggrandisement!

Take from it what you will - No thanks I should have just watched some paint dry!
