    The Ward

    ★½

    As disappointing as The Ward being ostensibly Carpenter’s final film, it’s even more disheartening as a Girl, Interrupted rip-off. Every archetype and story beat (outside of the murderous entity) are poorly lifted from James Mangold’s masterpiece. The added horror elements appear generic unfortunately due to its cheapness. The digital mise en scene is as if Asylum produced it. Every location is so clean and unlived in, you can’t imagine that this is the 60’s. The scares feel like a boogeyman going through the motions, nothing much to give except make you jump. It’s all waste and what a bummer.

    Having a binge eating disorder may attribute to Daisies being more triggering than intended. My more tangible disinterest is sketch comedy nature of the sisters’ debauchery, while an eye catching display of editing technique, isn’t funny enough to engage me. Actresses Cerhová and Karbanová are compelling presences with their 60’s frocks and anti-sexy behavior. They’re conceptually annoying yet I rather liked watching them fuck with every suitor who cross their path. I’m into the sound design of squeaks and ticks matching movements and characters hopping from location to location but my basic disconnect from non-narrative structure bores me amidst this anarchist serenade.

Sure I love Edward Norton whether he's playing Smoochy or a Neo Nazi but a Spike Lee movie with a mostly white cast kept me skeptical. While I still haven't found out what motivated Lee to make it, I'm very glad he did. The film follows Monty, a former drug dealer, on his last free night before going to prison for 7 years. The story is…
