Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Between a long, dull narrative of droning gibberish and visuals that are often too fuzzy or darkly cast in shadow to make out, this movie is nearly unwatchable. Perfect tells us, "In this great delusion of love, an object cannot exist without something else to reflect itself back unto itself," and that redundancy alone would make it fair to declare this pretentious disaster dreadfully dreadful. The movie is artsy rather than artistic, mimicry rather than the real thing. Long sequences are presented in red lighting for no particular reason. Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey comes to mind, as does Avatar, but not in a good way. Nudity and peculiarly precious violence make this appropriate for older teens, if it can be said to be appropriate for anyone.

But it's unlikely that teens old enough to handle the content will have the patience to sit through murky visuals and a score by Flying Lotus (aka Steven Ellison) that sounds like a few tinkly cell phone ringtones playing in a loop. No one will mistake this for a meaningful examination of the human condition, although that's what the filmmakers seem to be going for.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
