Hearing that the Hollywood gold medal team A24 and Alex garland, the director of “machine girl”, cooperated with the large-scale horror film “man”, which is known as “women’s version of” escape from desperate town “, I went to watch it. Unexpectedly, the front was mysterious and attractive, but it was slow and procrastinating. The brain hole thief’s limited level lens just got a little creepy in the first ten minutes of the end, and immediately ended scribbled.
Harper has just experienced her husband’s death. After listening to her friend’s introduction, she went to a villa in the suburbs to relax. At first, the quiet and comfortable garden was extremely beautiful, and the green plants of nature were also refreshing. Unexpectedly, the frequent strange events made her feel more and more uneasy. The photography, art, special effects and music of the whole film are great, but they are a little mysterious!
The landlord was a kind and funny middle-aged man, but inadvertently made Harper fall into painful memories during the conversation. He kept asking Harper’s husband for information and emphasized the title “Mrs. Marlowe”, which upset the heroine!
The heroine went for a walk in the wild and came to a secret and charming tunnel. She went in and shouted to listen to her echo and find the fun of her childhood. He saw the figure of the mysterious man again, as if it were the cry of his ex husband. He was running towards her at full speed, which scared Harper to flee.
Then, a stiff naked man with a bloody face followed Harper all the way and broke into the courtyard in an attempt to commit an offence. Fortunately, the police arrived soon, arrested him and put him in prison, but soon released him.
These strange things remind Harper of the cause of her husband’s death. She filed for divorce because she lost her feelings with her husband for a long time! Unexpectedly, the other party became angry and attacked her with a heavy fist.
It’s easy for the heroine to file a lawsuit and divorce. Her husband is still haunted, trying to climb from the balcony to her ex-wife’s house, but accidentally fell off the building. Looking at the bloody body of his ex husband, Harper collapsed!
Back around the country villa, a child wearing a strange mask ordered Harper to play hide and seek with him as soon as he came up. After being rejected, he angrily called Harper “stupid bitch!”
At this time, a priest stepped forward when Harper was harassed by the boy and drove him away. After the two talked, the priest didn’t comfort Harper, but asked female number one, “after being beaten, did you give her husband an opportunity to apologize?”
The priest said, “men sometimes beat women”, “this kind of behavior is bad, but it is not the worst.” “If you give him a chance to forgive him, maybe he will live” and other lines are obviously defending his dead ex husband.
The whole film is full of grotesque, like the naked man who suddenly leaned down behind and blew a dandelion at the heroine. Seeds floating all over the sky pounced on the woman, making her miserable. The slow motion freeze frame was beautiful, but metaphorical. It is said that this symbolizes that men can sow easily, while women are not happy.
Ten minutes of the climax, all kinds of strange pictures are wide open, enough to be included in the history of cult films, but all kinds of fantastic, and can’t stop the end. For example, the naked man stretched out his hand from the mailbox window, pulled Harper’s hand hard, and was directly stabbed by the heroine’s sharp knife. After struggling, he cut his arm in half and spread out like a crab claw.
Then, we found that naked men, landlords, little boys, priests and policemen were all transformed by “men”. For example, the little boy appeared again, dragged his injured hand and forced Harper to play games with himself.
No matter how the heroine dodges, the other party appears in different places as if she can move instantly. After the priest appeared, he questioned, “when did you lose your virginity? I think you are an expert on lust!”
The priest also tried to force her to have sex with herself. Harper stabbed her directly into his abdomen before she fell down, and then continued to deform
When Harper tried to escape the town, the landlord stopped her car and was knocked over. The landlord not only didn’t die, but also grabbed the car and tried to hit the heroine to death. It happened that he was too stupid to hit anyone!
Later, men of different shapes were born from the original body of “men”. Various large-scale naked and bloody scenes, first the stomach, then the back, and finally the mouth, were made to chase the heroine. The whole process was full of imagination, but it was really abnormal and disgusting. You don’t know why.
The last thing that came out was the dead ex husband. He complained to Harper that his internal organs were broken and his left leg was broken. He just wanted to return to Harper and the strength supporting him was “my love!”
There was no explanation of whether the mysterious “man” was a monster or a ghost, nor did he explain his whereabouts. The heroine’s girlfriend came back, so it was a perfunctory end. Although it is a surreal horror film, with a metaphor of vicious male reproduction to harass women, the cause and effect are really not clear, so it’s over!
Alex garland, the British director who wrote “28 days of sudden change” and “don’t let me go”, has started filming blindly to enhance the experimental nature since his “mechanical girl” defeated “crazy Max 4” to win the Oscar for best visual effect. Although the special effects of his last “annihilation” are excellent, the story is obscure and out of control, which is not awesome.
Although “man” creates a creepy and unimaginable fear of men, which seems to be very meaningful and thoughtful, it is similar to “future crimes” a while ago. The whole film is superficial, grotesque, slow, and sloppy. It’s really boring!
Maybe after watching the video of station B, you can know more about this movie!
