Seen at the Los Angeles Premiere on 10/27/21. I will tell you this: walking into a Diana "biopic," I did not expect to see a psychological horror with unnerving (and weird!) music and myth-like ghost appearances. It caught me off guard - in the best way possible. I did expect to see beautiful cinematography (reminiscent of the beauty of Portrait of a Lady on Fire), top notch performances and beautiful locations. Spencer, however, misses a little bit of emotional depth and, on the other hand, could use a little less of the metaphorical soap opera. This is a fitting 4.5/5 but for the "Tell them you saw a ghost!" scene, I will grace it with a 5.
The perfect blockbuster to re-open theaters with. Unfortunately, the villain plot line is too shallow for a 5/5, the same issue I had with the sister Spectre.
Necessary re-telling of medieval stories that basically proves that masculinity is a performance. One with beautiful sceneries, pretty terrifying folklore monsters and really good sound design at that. Came here for the horror, stayed for the folklore and character study.
Dneska jsem zhlédl 500 days of Summer. Nic lepšího jsem snad ani vidět nemohl.
