    A Woman Under the Influence

    ★★★★½

    Finally September has come! Let the Letterboxd Season Challenge 2015-2016 begin! I started off a bit early, as I will be on holiday in a couple of weeks, so a head start will definitely come in handy.

    This is one of those rare occasions where 90% of my LB friends absolutely love or adore a film, when it leaves me cold and a bit amazed by the almost universal love for it. 

    I see a few merits, most notably the performances by especially Ronan and Metcalf. Other than that I was mostly bored and couldn’t connect to the characters even one bit. Most of them felt like cardboard cutout stereotypes and hardly any more interesting than we…

Characterization is completely absent, but here it doesn't feel like as big a deal as it did with Inception. That film had an emotional component that should have been fleshed out way more. Here that component is way less necessary as it focusses more on being a straight up action movie, but with the Nolan twist being…
