4.0 out of 5 stars Molly alone, 13 Feb 2013
This review is from: Lovely Molly [DVD] (DVD)
Quite creepy and involving 'Lovely Molly' initially has an overfamiliar feel to it but thereafter moves into darker territory with inferences and episodes of childhood trauma, mental unravelling, damaging relationships and intravenous drug use.
The Molly of the title descends quite rapidly from an outwardly happy and hopeful young woman to a very vulnerable, fearful and psychotic individual. Residing within her former childhood home provides the catalyst for a serious deterioration in behaviour or are darker forces at work here, influencing and exerting their malevolent control over events? As days pass Mollys feelings of isolation and paranoia/persecution grow and given the backstory and alarming deterioration in Mollys mental state she is certainly in need of more appropriate intervention than the sleeping tablets she is provided with.
It plays out very effectively and probably ends as well as it could do without oversensationalising things. Has some full frontal nudity and violence and the adult themes are all handled with aplomb. Performances were fine as well and the main character of Molly was easy to empathise with, a bit like a more disturbed Catherine Deneuve a la 'Repulsion' which this film has parallells with.
The extras consist of some episodic shorts examing the events of the film 'Lovely Molly' in a sensationalised American tv type manner to try and elicit the cause of the events that unfolded, interviewing doctors etc who were treating 'Molly' and also cast members concerning the purported spooky things that were occurring during filming. It's all done as if the film itself was documenting true events and doesn't really add anything to the dvd at all but it is an extra and not part of the film so it doesn't detract either.
