      comicbook b It's a great uncomfortable film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The film was offensively bad, without a single redeeming feature or a credible moment. Cringingly awful from beginning to end… Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member The Cruelty and Abuse was difficult to watch!!! Strong acting and good-looking shirtless lifeguards running around in speedos cannot redeem this sadistic mess of a film. I didn't need to see this. No redemption, growth or meaningful message here. You already know there are sick people out there that take out their cruelty on others ...do you really enjoy watching it? I found this similar to watching a serial killer slowly torturing their victim (whom we have grown emotionally attached to ...making it WAY WORSE). If you want to see some hot guys and a quick penis shot; simply watch some internet porn instead! You won't feel so empty, upset and emotionally drained afterwards. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member As created in the editing room, the film is a candy-colored fever dream. That takes some getting used to, as the experience is often frustratingly stunted and heavy handed. Yet, somewhere around the halfway mark, the intention matches the material, lending it weight and pathos. This is a simple story - essentially the exploration of how toxic masculinity drowns one man - but the three actors keep it afloat; especially Levett, who is superb and destined for stardom. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This never worked for me.Honestly this was so wrong.The direction was really dragging it down.It was quite a struggle to piece everything up and uncover the puzzle that was Len,with all the back and forth.It was quite a challenge to make everything follow the time line that led to the events of the final night.Not the best directional choice!Levett was amazing in his role,he delivered every emotion perfectly!Actually the acting in general was really good.Other than that,I have to say this just didn't work for me.It really didn't. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The story was very confusing. Why continue to switch from the past to present? The movie was like a car driving in circles.

      Glenn Dunks Junkee It's an unpleasant experience that spends too much of its time with bad dialogue to say anything we don't already know. Feb 9, 2016 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film The film hinges on Levett's powerful performance. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 12, 2015 Full Review Beth Accomando KPBS.org The trio of actors -- Levett, Jack Matthews, and Harry Cook -- anchors the film with compelling performances. Oct 9, 2015 Full Review Garth Franklin Dark Horizons Francis has got an interesting eye and goal in mind here, it's just the material needed more refinement and stronger structural beats for it to reach its admirably lofty ambitions.
