This film is so naive I simply cannot hate it no matter what. There’s something so magical in a silly way about Diana lassoing a lightning I find it very amusing. It’s also far from any cynicism and it’s light without being Marvel light, so it’s actually fresh. It feels more like pre-Marvel era and that’s actually a good thing.

"Artik" is a low budget indie about a Serial Killer obsessed with comic books. It's a film that works its way around the lack of resources pretty well through the use of gritty aesthetics and a solid cast.
The excessive monologues put me off a bit too often to enjoy it to its full potential. As the saying goes, some more of “show, don’t tell” would have benefited this film a lot, especially in the construction of the killer.
