Paranoia is one of the most harmful emotional states that one can have the misfortune of falling into. When you're constantly worried about the possibility that something terrible might happen, and you're constantly looking over your shoulder, it's impossible to find any sort of peace. Sure, if you tell someone about your paranoia, the person might tell you "Just chill out, don't worry about it.... read more

Here’s a novelty for you: an Olsen sibling who can act. I mean, really and truly act her ass of. Elizabeth Olsen deserves a major and long-lasting career based purely on the strength of this lone performance. The movie surrounding it should have risen to her level, but what’s there is effective if never transcendent. While the sense of paranoia and time-jumps do realistically place us in the m... read more

"Martha Marcy May Marlene" is an amazing cinematic jolt to the nervous system, plain and simple. It stars Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a girl who escapes to her sister and her brother-in-law's lakeside retreat after involving herself with some scary people.

But this is not the ordinary 'victim escapes near death- victim fights back story.' By intertwining Martha's new life with sc... read more

Movie Diary - September 2013 (12 movies items)

"I liked Martha Marcy May Marlene, though its complicated plot and its ridiculously abrupt ending. The amount of match cuts was formidable, I'm always up for those. They linked the two different time and place parts well together. So well, that you had to think everytime again where Martha is now. Apropos, I was very surprised when I looked up the name who acted as the main character Martha: Elisabeth Olsen. I take it as a good sign, that she didn't remind me at all of the Olsen Twins. She remi"

"24.01.2013 "Zoe, I can't stop thinking about that man." "Yeah. I know. We're never really dead or alive; we just exist. So he's still existing, but it's in a parallel time. Just don't think about it." I liked most of this movie very much. Elizabeth Olsen really surprised me. I heard she was good in the film, but this was not what i expected from the little sister of the Olsen twins. John Hawkes was also fantastic as always. He was not in the film as much as i would have hoped, but he sure make"

Escaping the Past- Easier Said Than Done

“"Martha Marcy May Marlene" is an amazing cinematic jolt to the nervous system, plain and simple. It stars Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a girl who escapes to her sister and her brother-in-law's lakeside retreat after involving herself with some scary people.

But this is not the ordinary 'victim escapes near death- victim fights back story.' By intertwining Martha's new life with scenes from her past, we are forced to confront the ambiguities of the situation- is Martha being followed, or does she simply perceive it that way? Was Martha crazy before the events leading to her escape from the cult?

What exactly is Martha's secret? On the surface, she seems like a normal young girl, but inside her subconscious, an inner war rages. Elizabeth Olsen knocks it out of the park as ” read more

)- Ambiguous Endings -( (14 movies items)

" Martha escapes a cult and takes up with her sister and her husband, but there's this feeling that she's being watched. 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' trips between the past and present fluidly, as we -- and Martha -- are unable to separate the two. As her sister drives her to a mental institution, a man Martha had spotted earlier on the other end of a lake runs in front of the car, then hops into a truck and begins to follow them. Maybe Martha is crazy and just imagining things "
