So no one is going to even acknowledge the fact that the main character has the brain of a child and is engaging in horrifically lewd sexual activity?? Pedophilic and disgusting. I love Yorgos' style, creativity and originality, but this was absolutely abhorrent. As a woman, I found it grotesquely offensive. This is not feminism.
Just cuz Ema Stone acts in a movie does not mean its gonna be good. there were no warning signs of this movie being so creepy and R++ rated.. I thought 2023 movie Menu was bad ,, but this one tops that. walked out of theater after suffering for 40 Minutes.
Both literary and cinematic, “Poor Things” gives the audience everything we can ask for in a film—beauty and wonder; hefty ideas and clever storytelling; twists, shocks and laughter.
It has plenty of the bizarre visual flair Lanthimos cut his teeth on, from his signature extreme wide angles up to and including a bulldog with the head of a duck frolicking through a grand living room. Yet Poor Things, based on a 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, is joyous in its weirdness, joyous in its exploration and celebration of its strange, strange world. This movie is incredibly fun to watch.
Lanthimos may have cobbled together a rambunctious psychosexual odyssey from many Frankensteinian parts — a little “Alice in Wonderland,” a dash of “Metropolis,” a soupçon of Voltaire by way of the Marquis de Sade — but he and his skilled collaborators have marshaled them into a remarkably coherent and purposeful vision.
