    ★★

    Visually Stunning? Mostly. Pretentious? Incredibly. Boring? Insufferably. Further proof that any movie can be made tolerable by the inclusion of Juliette Binoche? Yup. Even further proof that Robert Pattinson is a mediocre actor at best? Definitely.

    ★★

    It was actually quite enjoyable until the obligatory sequel prep kicked in and took all the fun out of it.

    ★★★★

    "No one understands the lonely perfection of my dreams."

    Michael Fassbender should get a nomination for this. He won't, but he should. He's so fucking good.

    Outside a handful of problems (mostly some minor pacing issues in the second act, but also some minor horror movie clichés here or there), I loved every second of this film. Fassbender's just a wicked delight, the production design is amazing, and Ridley Scott manages to build up a great deal of tension and dread throughout the film's fairly basic, familiar story arc.

    ★★★½

    I honestly don’t quite know whether this is some sort of millennial masterpiece or a steaming pile of shit.

    I do know that I (briefly) felt compelled to write quite a long piece on this film, and that, while watching, I was enjoying whatever it is I was given.
