Martha Marcy May Marlene: Rape, Brainwashing! Yay!

It’s that time of year again. It’s time when all the good, deep movies come out. I think it’s best to start out with the Sundance daring Martha Marcie May Marlene.

The name’s a handful I know, but then again… so is the film itself.

Sad part about writing a review for this is that I really can’t tell you much about the movie itself outside what you just saw in the trailer. It’s a film that requires you to sort shit out in your head as you watch. This is going to require at least 2 more viewings for me I’m sure.

There’s a bit of a shocker at the end that’ll leave mainstream audiences not very happy. Thankfully for me, Director Sean Durkin was at my screening for the Q&A and broke everything down. Great dude that Mr. Durkin, we got to talk for a minute afterwards.

But about the film, much like Winter’s Bone last year… it’s dark, low budget and just delivers one surprise after another. It’s bound to leave a lasting impression on all that watch it. Everything is just nailed straight into your brain.

A+
