Splice: A film that's highly intelligent if you look for it


Splice, A-

Here is an excellent excellent intellectual horror/thriller type film. I don’t mean it in the sense that the action or the imagery will disturb you (maybe a little) but the truth in the ideas. The film is most prominently about morality. The crucial moments when it disturbs you are moments where you see a character do something completely absurd and unheard of (which disgusts you) yet you’re even more disgusted by the fact that you probably would’ve been sucked into doing the same if you were in that situation. The filmmaking is brilliant, but not as brilliant as the writing. Brody is superb in this. High recommendation. I saw the world premiere and the majority was with my positive reaction.
