`Vivarium (2020)` Movie Review: Disturbing Movie Which Keeps one Mad on Every Turn

Cristina Soulmates - 27th Mar 2020 210 Views

Genre: Comedy, Horror, Mystery
Release Date: 27 March 2020

Stars: Imogen Poots, Danielle Ryan, Molly McCann, Jesse Eisenberg
Plot Summary: A young couple is thinking about buying their starter home. And to this end, they visit a real estate agency where they are received by a strange sales agent, who accompanies them to a new, mysterious, peculiar housing development to show them a single-family home. There they get trapped in a surreal, maze-like nightmare.


The director Lorcan Finnegan and crew brought a bizarre movie. During the unfolding of the story, one feels drained or for a better word would be numb as one spiral down deeply into the film. In a dire situation, one can let it overpower or try to hold any purpose of hope. There are two main characters that have different ways to show control for being mysteriously trapped in a labyrinth styled suburban neighborhood. It doesn't only show the ways to grasp sanity but also presents the importance meaning of small details. There was one scene where I felt a chill and that made it so worth it to keep my mind pondering the unnatural significance. This film targets the ones who are open-minded and who also love to dive into the psychological rides with no attachment to literal explanations.


The composer Kristian Eidnes Andersen gave the film the right vibe. The music perfectly spirals down the rabbit hole as the story gets weirder and weirder.


The two main actors Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots were magnificent. Though I got to give Imogen Poots more praise because every second of her performance was so detailed on showing sane and insane. This is the kind of film where performances are to be truly recognized due to the complexity of the characters in this disturbing story.


Final Score: [8/10]
