To me this movie feels like a fever dream . It is slow and a little wired , but is absolutely gorgeous. Gore Verbinski is the master of the little details and I love that . Yeah without spoilers the ending could have been better, but who cares is a beautiful movie with Mia Goth in it . I thought it was different and definitely broke the boundaries.

Revisited this one recently and was shocked that I overlooked reviewing it. Bible says "What does a man profit to gain the world and lose his soul in the process?" Art imitating life in this eye/ mind opener that is creepy and strange but highly entertaining.

The main characters worked well in this film, played by Dane DeHann (2012 The Place Behind the Pines; 2014 The Amazing Spider-Man 2; and 2017 Valarian and the City of a Thousand Planets), Jason Issacs (2017-2018 Star Trek: Discovery tv series), and Mia Goth (2015's Everest and The Survivalist), and interesting theme of how humans caught up in the rat race of life, are ill and need a cure.
I did get confused which left me questioning some parts of the film, and felt that caused some serious short falls for me. It had me second guessing more than once, and left me trying to figure out the ending...which is not necessarily bad, but did leave me scratching my head in wonder, with a sketchy conclusion.
If that was the intent of the director (Gore Verbinski: 2002 the Ring; 2003, 2006, and 2007 Pirates of the Caribbean films; 2011 Rango; and 2013 The Lone Ranger) and the writer (Justine Haythe: 2008 Revolutionary Road; 2013 The Lone Ranger; and 2018 Red Sparrow), then they did their job well.
The eight minutes plus bonus has three deleted "Meditation" scenes of water, air and earth.

A really chilling and exiting horror movie. Surprised and still not understand the last part, but it is worth a shot to watch

yes, slow. but an interesting movie. there were some indicators of the kind of creepy ending that was coming. i'm glad it had an ending like that, otherwise it would have just been a creepy doctor in a creepy hospital

Very slow and not the best finish.

Intriguing and disturbing movie but a little too long and confusing in areas. Left me with some unanswered questions. There is some very beautiful and some very creepy imagery.

2.5 hours of slow, boring creep, followed by 15 minutes of "wait, what? this is like 4 movies worth of crazy visuals and backstory and character development and action and dystopian goth music video crammed in here. Such a good concept but such a poor execution.

Very weird and creepy.
