    Knock at the Cabin

    ★★★

    The film does a lot of things right. For most of the movie it creates a nice back and forth of whether the Doomsday Four  are legit or unreliable narrators. There’s a fair amount of tension as the isolation of the locale is felt. It also avoids being vague, there is no doubt what happens. Despite all that, it’s really flat.

    Ok, I like to think I understood enough of it to get the point. But it's so crammed with metaphors it's insane. The metaphors are interesting ideas but it's so over the top the movie can't be taken seriously. For most of the movie I was just laughing and rolling my eyes at the ridiculousness of it. But that last fifteen minutes turned me into downright hating it. The best thing I can say is it will make a great subject for a future episode of How did this get made. Please, somebody teach Aronofsky about subtlety....
