Madeline's Madeline

Madeline's Madeline

Julien Donkey-Boy for theater kids. However, unlike Julien Donkey-Boy, this film never bored me. It does a great job of continually finding new ways to make you squirm, and the editing and cinematography effectively put you in Madeline's head. Is that enough to make it good? I don't know. I never felt a connection to Madeline or any of the other characters, and the dialogue was cringe-worthy. Also, most of the entertainment came from the intense discomfort that filled the room. If I had watched it without an audience, my feelings towards it would probably be far more negative.
