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.

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

" Oh, so many beautiful words have been said about this film but really what are you left with? 1. I don't think that there is any really sort of blending of 'what is real and what isn't'. Sorry... just didn't get that from the film. 2. Didn't like how people wanting to live outside of the system of wealth are of course... murderers and rapists and can only live their life by robing people. 2. People with nice houses are cold, detached and clueless. 3. Women... well there is your real probl"

" Redbox Rental A shabbily shot, wholly unpleasant viewing experience powered largely by the sense that those in charge of this dour and nasty little film are overly convinced of the dramatic weight and power of it all. (If you don't believe me, pay attention to the music during the house party scene) The writers/director seem to have a very loose grip on reality and behavioral psychology at best, but no matter I suppose, since they've set out to create a bleaker-than-thou story that seemingly"

"Date: 18. February ------------------ *First Time Watch* ------------------ A pretty good drama/thiller, but I wasn't really blown away by it. The acting was really good, especially by Elizabeth Olsen, and I liked the concept that her psyche was really messed up and that she jumped between the past and present. "
