Destined for cult status

Opening up the week after John Wick 2 and 50 shades 2 and the same week as The Great Wall, does not bode well for the R rated box office of one of the most cryptic, deranged, and disturbing films ever made. You will hate this one or love it, not likely to get many in between votes. There are images in this film that I will never get out of my head. I am smarter than your average bear but I really have to see the film again to figure a lot of it out. And though I gave it an 8, I am not sure it is something I want to subject myself to again. ..

Acquired taste

Gore Verbinski, the man who gave us the first "Ring" movie, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, "Rango," and "The Lone Ranger" is now back with this Hitchcockian Gothic psychological thriller designed to keep you guessing till the very end. Even though its final 20 minutes somewhat go off the rails a bit, overall A CURE FOR WELLNESS is stunning, bold and hypnotic. ..

Absurd but quite watchable

A Cure for Wellness- A short review

Can't believe all these bad reviews or the horrible percentage it has on this website. This movie broke all expectations I had and was filled with twists and turns that will leave your head spinning even after the film is over and it's been half a day. Before going into my review, I just want to address 3 annoying things I have seen in reviews. 1) First review I saw by Angry Joe on YouTube said that it was predictable from the first scene what would happen by the end. This is so untrue. I expected it to have some Shutter Island, Fight Club, split personality twist but that never happens. Instead you get more and more reeled into the character and all the mystery of what is happening at this facility. 2) Some critic on RT said it was a lot of unpleasantness. WHAT THE F**K did you expect? A happy go lucky movie with pleasant fun things in it? NO! Obviously the whole thing is about a guy losing his mind, so that is just in general an unpleasant theme, you moron. 3) Saw a critic saying it was over-produced. Apart from maybe one scene I can think of towards the end, it was not over produced. It was WELL produced which is very different. When I think of an over-produced movie, I think of almost every superhero movie recently that is plagued by bad writing and an overload of CG. This was nothing of the sort. Nearly every CG moment (besides the stupid face of a deer that gets hit by the car) looked stunningly realistic and was used at a moment where it was necessary to the artistic integrity of the film. This film is ART! ..

Mixed feelings....

Visually, this film is a masterpiece and the shots are breathtaking. The castle where most of the movie takes place is a great setting, it's a real place in Germany called Castle Hohenzollern. Every shot is a piece of art, framed and filmed with the utmost respect for the craft. The story is an interesting one, you'll be thinking to yourself for most of the movie, what is the cure for wellness? They do give an answer to it later in the movie. The plot has a man working for a big finance company out to retrieve the CEO of the company from a wellness center in the Swiss Alps. Along the way, he meets some interesting characters and tries to figure out what exactly they're trying to cure up there on the mountain. The only thing I thought the film could have done better was with the twist, it could be seen from a mile away if you were watching the previous part of the movie with even a little bit of concentrated focus. My suggestion: See it! this film is the reason people go to the movies, to be entertained to the extent of leaving a lasting impression.

The Existential Dread of Gore Verbinski

OK, well, this is going to be a tricky review, folks, because this is a weird movie, very weird. A Cure For Wellness has the great merit of being different, and to reward the movie goer with something that stands out from the crowd; but, once you have appreciated this aspect, you might also want to be rewarded with a kind of content that gives the form some substance. And here is where A Cure For Wellness lets you down. I thought the first part of the movie was very good (rating: 8): you are simply smashed by the oneiric, hypnotic power of the images, by the stunning photography, by a breathtaking use of the camera, pretty good acting; and the intrigue created by the plot is such that you just keep asking yourself where this can reasonably go. That should have been the job of the second part (rating: 2) , where instead most of the potential built in the first half is wasted: the story, from intriguing, turns silly; the mysterious plot turns into a surreal Dracula movie which just does not make justice to itself.

A must-watch!

One cannot deny the ingenuity of director Gore Verbinski. At his best, he artfully weaves stories through a centrifuge of age-old storytelling techniques, and sumptuous world-building. Sometimes it feels as if Verbinski creates his worlds without even trying; the filigree and lore of Pirates of the Caribbean (2003-Present) and Rango (2011) exists almost as a state of fact. They exist because, of course they do. Would you want it any other way? A Cure for Wellness takes that same instinct and eye for detail to the stratosphere, providing an opulent and unique playground for all the film's ghouls to play in. The alpine roads leading up to the Swiss sanatorium where we lay our scene, hug the mountains like laces of a tightly fit dress. The naturalism of the verdant bluffs compare starkly to the shimmering glass buildings where our hero Lockhart (DeHaan) has found his professional niche. "Her eyes are closed because she's dreaming," a character says about a ballerina figurine. At the film's height, it certainly feels like we're dreaming. ..

Magic Mountain

I was really excited about this movie when the trailer came out, I could not wait to see it. But after reading multiple bad comments about the film, I got worried. But I must say, nothing to worry about. The movie is kinda weird maybe, but if you watch the trailer you know what you're settling in for, I suppose. The story develops itself kinda slow, but that didn't bother me cause I was intrigued by the story. The movie has good actors, a great setting and atmosphere. It kinda reminded me of Shutter Island, I think because of the whole "mystery island with a weird cure-institution"-thing.

Gorgeously done, and well written

This is a fairly clever turn on Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, sort of like Thomas Mann meet Bram Stoker meet Edgar Allen Poe. I looked for Mann's name in the writing credits, not really expecting to see them, and didn't, nevertheless you might note the attendant that's supposed to watch while Lockhart is getting treated in the submersion tank is reading Der Zauberberg, well at least temporarily. A shout out of acknowledgment. A cameo for Mr Mann. Otherwise just the best mad scientist movie that I've probably ever seen. Very well acted, photographed, and staged. Great scenery, and well stomach turning effects. A trap that catches the audience as well as Mr Lockhart.
