I Care a Lot

I Care a Lot ★★★

Can someone please give Rosamund Pike a nice and calm period piece or something?

I'm extremely mixed on this film. On the positive side, it's a very fun and entertaining black comedy/thriller that is sure to keep you engaged. Acting is great all around, as well as the score which I thought was very interesting. The electronic sound gave off a cool yet uneasy vibe which fit pretty well with Marla's character. The dual protagonist-antagonist character, personified by Rosamund Pike is massively entertaining.

Unfortunately, the second half of the movie is very messy, it seems as if the director didn't know what to add to the movie so they just went haywire. The tonal shift ruins the overall vibe of the movie and a very rushed final 15 minutes with underdeveloped twists makes the film's end underwhelming. In a way, it's problematic and flawed but endlessly entertaining. Rosamund Pike shines in a comedy that proves yet again that she can play cold-blooded and ruthless with style.
