1.0 out of 5 stars Dull as ditch water - and I love slow art films !!!, 26 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Berberian Sound Studio [DVD] (DVD)
I really rated "Katlin Varga" Peter Strickland's first film - it was full of atmosphere and tension and was a great self funded breakthrough production. I was expecting more from this his next outing and to be honest I found it incredibly dull and that's coming from someone who is a massive fan of the slow paced art film ( Stalker, Satantango, Turin Horse etc.) As the final credits rolled I just couldn't help thinking - "SO WHAT?" Once the vegetable smashing one liner was worked to death and you realised this guy was out of his depth the film went nowhere. People raved about Toby Jones in the part but I couldn't help finding him mannered and irritating and the biggest elephant in the room has got to be - why on earth would they have hired this guy to do horror based on his crappy films about the Surrey Hills which, as far as we could see, did nothing to showcase his talent as a sound designer? Sorry - I'm going to go against the hype and say don't bother with this one. Spend a couple of hours watching something else.

I appreciate the review, so I voted yes for helpfulness. That said, I completely disagree with your assessment, mainly because throughout my life I have been obsessed more with sound than with sight. This film centres almost exclusively on sound, hence the delight it engenders. It's the same reason I loved that otherwise tediously long ping-pong scene in 71 Fragments... The sound!
