Horror Trunk Review: Malice in Stokerland,
This review is from: Stoker [DVD]  (DVD)
In Stoker the shots are arranged much like paintings, the sharp colours and the framed spaces, create a beautiful and surreal element to the film. The close-ups explore the human senses, and the momentary emotions felt by the characters. The camera is also used to detach the characters from each other, as it rotates between them and the dialogue.
The narrative could have been tighter, but this film presents an interesting theme of sexual awakening, violence, and the senses. The violence is short and abrupt, focussing on the act and immediate spectacle of death, rather than the grief and guilt. Not as violent as previous work, but an impressive psychological look into families and loyalty.
I wonder what my uncle is up to at the weekend......bowling maybe...
