Bodies Bodies Bodies ★★

Bodies Bodies Bodies (2021)
dir. Halina Reijn

Obnoxious and shallow; a satire devoid of any tension or nuance that screams in your face but says kind of nothing at all, other than that Gen Z cares more about themselves, cell reception, and who kissed who more so than literal dead bodies on the floor. Like, haha, but when you communicate just that right in the beginning and almost every scene after — and have much of the conflict derive from events beforehand and off-screen — it’s not so much a deep exploration than it is just one-hundred minutes of characters yelling at each other and speaking weightless dialogue. Maybe that’s the point? I don’t know. Just kind of an excruciating film — one wonderfully acted, by the way — wrapped up in a neat little neon bow.

Wanted to like it but… yikes. 🔪
