Review Haiku: Martha Marcy May Marlene, We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Ward

Martha Marcy May Marlene
Haunting, gripping piece
A star-making performance
Just needs an ending

We Need to Talk About Kevin
Masterfully shot;
Swinton rocks, but two hours of
pointless misery.

The Ward
Carpenter could rest
on Halloween and The Thing;
The Ward proves he should.


  1. Swinton is SO WEIRD. so angular, insect like but yet, undeniably feminine. it's bizarre.

  2. You can't take your eyes off her. I would love to recommend the movie just based on the power of her performance and the power of the visuals, but it is truly two hours of watching miserable people being miserable and leading up to a conclusion they already told you was coming. Painful.
