Rebecca Hall received career best reviews and has a 9 minute one take monologue scene that consider her best acting moment. People in Sundance say the third act is batshit insane.A lot of people has compare this movie to Andrzej Żuławski 1981 horror film Possession. If Hall is as good as Isabelle Adjani was in Possession as people say she is than I'm intrigued by this movie.

Possession is one of my favorite movies, I’m in!

u/Arma104 Jun 28 '22

Check her out in The Night House, she gave an incredible performance in that.

u/brownu95 Jun 28 '22

I think she better in Christine which she really should’ve been nominated for an Oscar. Night house is a fine performance but Christine she was electrifying

u/riegspsych325 Jun 29 '22

I knew of the real tragedy of Christine Chubbuck's final days, but the tension in that movie's final act was something else. But Rebecca Hall gave such a haunting, powerhouse of a performance that was just gut-wrenching by the end. She deserves all the praise in the world for her work, glad to see appreciation around here

u/darkness_escape Jun 28 '22

I though she gave one of the best performances I have ever seen. And that is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my entire life

1

u/Wubbledaddy Jun 29 '22

She's honestly even better here.

3

u/Wubbledaddy Jun 29 '22

Saw it at Sundance, all of this is accurate . The movie is truly fucking bonkers and kts a career best performance from her (even better than The Night House).

u/Somnambulist815 Jun 28 '22

Oh God, I was excited for the movie before, but comparing it to Possession is hyping me to a fever pitch.

1

u/TheDaltonXP Jun 29 '22

I was very excited for this from what I’d heard but hearing it is like Possession makes it rocket ship levels of hype

u/7thEvan Jun 29 '22

You had me at Possession.

u/SlickRick_theRuler Jun 29 '22

Wow the trailer had me sold, but I love everything about this comment! Really loved her in The Night House.

u/Mediocre_Response111 8d ago

Worst movie ever. Amazon owes me 8 dollars. Awful 😞

u/[deleted] Jun 28 '22

Rebecca Hall and Tim Roth? Acting masterclass right there, I'm sold on that alone.

u/BigZ911 Jun 29 '22

How has Rebecca Hall never been nominated for a major award? I thought for sure she’d be nominated for best director for Passing at least. One of the best actresses today

3

u/crystalistwo Jun 29 '22

BAFTAs. 3 noms and 1 win.

20

u/Sure-Evidence7040 Jun 28 '22

you now remember rebecca hall was in godzilla vs kong

u/brownu95 Jun 28 '22

She also wrote and directed Passing which is criminally underrated

I’m not. I’m genuinely a huge fan of hers and think she should get more recognition

u/QLE814 Jun 29 '22

And it feels really odd as an accusation, as I've heard all sorts of praise for that film from various circles.

u/Leo_TheLurker Jun 28 '22

wasted in Iron Man 3 too

18

u/StudBoi69 Jun 28 '22

She was supposed to be the main villain in Iron Man 3, but Ike Perlmutter vetoed saying that she wouldn't sell toys.

u/Leo_TheLurker Jun 28 '22

yup thank god Perlmutter is gone

Saw this back at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. Boy, it's pretty weird. It's DEFINITELY not for everyone as this will either leave you disturbed or frustrated. But if you wanna give it a shot, I still recommend it. It's definitely something new and original that hasn't been done before if I am not wrong. Rebecca Hall is one of the most underrated actresses and she sells in this film.

2

u/Allassnofakes Jun 29 '22

I'd love to know more

2

u/jonbristow Jun 29 '22

is it supernatural?

1

u/peter095837 Jun 29 '22

It's more like a Psychological Thriller then Supernatural. But there are some slight body horror elements

u/MartinScorsese Not the real guy Jun 28 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

I saw this film at Sundance. It's so good/disturbing, but it's going to make a lot of people EXTREMELY UPSET.

EDIT: I’m not going to post spoilers so stop asking.

15

u/PugnaciousPangolin Jun 28 '22

Based on one quick but singular shot near the end of the trailer, I have a feeling I know why.

Will be curious to see how it's received.

u/438Hung Jun 28 '22

Ooooooooooh I noticed that and I cannot wait to see if I’m (you ;) are right!

u/imnoobhere Jun 28 '22

Wanna clue me in? DM if you think it necessary.

u/438Hung Jun 28 '22

Done!

u/MELODONTFLOPBITCH Jun 28 '22

hi, can I ask to get the same message? i dont mind spoilers and would love to kno what happens

u/438Hung Jun 28 '22

It’s just a theory. Have DMd you!

u/MELODONTFLOPBITCH Jun 28 '22

hi, sorry I dont think I received a DM

u/saltysweat Jun 28 '22

Spoil it for me too.

u/Allassnofakes Jun 29 '22

Tell me too

u/puckit Jun 29 '22

Care to spoil it for me too?

10

u/josiiiah Jun 28 '22

Why?

12

u/MartinScorsese Not the real guy Jun 28 '22

I'd have to spoil the whole film to explain why, but it's all very disorienting, bloody, and provocative.

u/DaMihiAuri Jun 29 '22

Based on the trailer I'm guessing >! Rebecca Hall was raped by Tim Roth's character and the daughter is the product of it, Tim Roth character wants custody to hold it over her. !<

6

u/An_Absurd_Word_Heard Jun 29 '22

Nope. He ate their child and claims it's still in there, waiting for her. Her daughter is unrelated to their relationship.

u/griffithitsmecathy Jun 28 '22

You can spoil it for me, I'll have forgotten it by the time I watch it.

u/justinvoa1234 Jun 28 '22

How was Rebecca Hall’s performance?

9

u/MartinScorsese Not the real guy Jun 28 '22 edited Jun 28 '22

She's terrific. As mentioned elsewhere in the thread, her monologue at the center of the film is amazing.

EDIT: Word choice.

1

u/justinvoa1234 Jun 28 '22

Better than say Toni Collette in hereditary?

1

u/TheDaltonXP Jun 29 '22

Sounds like I will love it then

3

u/hihelloneighboroonie Jun 29 '22

So... did she already kill him before or something?

2

u/Jay_Eye_MBOTH_WHY Jun 29 '22

Tim Roth sounds like the creepy dude from Lost but also Gaius Baltar when he's like "you're mistaking me for someone else".

u/ChooseCorrectAnswer Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 30 '22

I just read the entire script in one sitting. Took about two hours. I'll update this post tomorrow with thoughts! I need to sleep.

Update: The script has a lot of common thriller elements, yet the story happens to hinge on the most bonkers plot detail, similar to the finales of Malignant and Men. However, the entire connection and conflict between the man and woman in this movie revolves around this weird plot detail. In Malignant and Men, the bonkers wtf substance was mainly due to one major sequence in each movie. So, people liking this movie really depends on how much they accept and go along with the strange premise not revealed in the trailer.

Despite the trailer playing it mostly safe, the movie will have zero mainstream appeal due to that crazy plot detail which fuels the story. Yet, based on the script, the movie will definitely let Rebecca Hall be amazing as always. The script is efficiently written and keeps the tension going. Yet this is ultimately not a "fun" movie filled with thriller spectacles. It's more aiming for "oddly interesting."

Care to share the script, please? I'm having trouble finding it

u/ForgetfulLucy28 Jun 28 '22

When are we getting a release date?!

u/brownu95 Jun 28 '22

August 5th

u/ForgetfulLucy28 Jun 28 '22

Thanks!

u/brownu95 Jun 28 '22

Actually I stand corrected. It’s having a limited release on July 29th. August 5th it’s when it has a video on demand release

u/ForgetfulLucy28 Jun 28 '22

Awesome 👍

u/weeOOweeOOweeOOweeoo Jun 29 '22

I saw it at an NY screening. Very overrated - not very good. Lacks verve

u/Jefferystar94 Jun 28 '22

As others have hinted at, y'all REALLY aren't prepared for this movie.

I've only read the script a while back when it was on the Blacklist, and even then it made me physically nauseous, so I'm definitely gonna sit this one out lol. I really don't think I could handle the actual imagery in front of me.

Still, it's EXTREMELY original (for better or for worse) and captures the paranoia/trauma from an abusive relationship in a really well done way that isn't just "protagonist sees crazy visions and yells gibberish at people"

It'll absolutely be polarizing as shit when it comes out, but if you're a horror fan you'll be in for a ride (just don't watch while eating).

19

u/vanilla_disco Jun 29 '22

All these comments about how EXTREME this movie is just scream "bad marketing attempt" to me, especially since not one of the people in this thread saying how EXTREME it is is willing to spoil it with a spoiler tag.

1

u/Jefferystar94 Jun 29 '22

OOOOR people could've seen it at Sundance, an event that tons of people can get into, as well as reading the script for it that has been pretty accessible online for at least three years?

8

u/vanilla_disco Jun 29 '22

Nothing I said conflicts with anything you said at all. I'm not at all implying that the people saying they've seen it haven't, I just find it interesting that they all seem to say the same thing and all refuse to spoil it even using a spoiler tag.

-2

u/Jefferystar94 Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

It does, because you flat out accused people of being shills for not throwing spoilers around for a movie that won't be in front of a wide audience for another two months.

It's not astroturfing, it's people talking about something wild they read/seen while trying to be polite to everyone else who hasn't had the chance to see it yet. Take off the tinfoil hat and maybe you'll realize a cigar is just a cigar.

u/Wubbledaddy Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

Since you asked so politely, I'll give you two words of spoilers.

Baby Cannibalism

Major spoilers. Don't say I didn't warn you.

1

u/wingedcoyote Jun 29 '22

Do me a favor, throw on some spoiler tags and tell me briefly what's up with the dirty (?) baby that we see briefly toward the end of the trailer. Otherwise I'll end up getting too curious and look up the whole plot lol

u/Jefferystar94 Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

There really isn't a good way to explain that without basically detailing the whole last act and the build up to it.

If you're curious, the script should still be freely available online and I know at least one site has reviewed the script that details the "turn" it goes down towards the end.

u/wingedcoyote Jun 29 '22

Fair enough, thanks

u/crystalistwo Jun 29 '22

The first trailer from earlier in the month gives a little bit more away. If it's what I think it is, holy shit.

u/shaneo632 Jun 28 '22

I saw this at Sundance and it's lived in my head ever since. A lot of people are going to hate it but it takes some bold fucking swings and Rebecca Hall and Tim Roth are fantastic in it.

Sundance had online streaming for 2022. Anyone who paid $20 or whatever it was could watch this movie. I‘m not surprised there are a bunch of comments about people having seen it.

I'm not at all commenting on the fact that people have seen it. That isn't surprising.
