rtrenchEerily reminiscent of A Woman Under the Influence, where the audience sees into the psyche of the main character, and through their eyes develops the world experienced in the film. The mood conveyed throughout suggests there's something more to what's going on, generating the intangible conflict which is Martha/Marcy May's persona. I feel like some people will feel like the rug was swept right from under them seeing the film, but through reflection I've already started to warmly receive the film. It's definitely among the arthouse set of 2011 films like Tree of Life and Another Earth, and will likely be in the Oscar running in the independent sect. I liked Elisabeth Olsen and John Hawkes in their roles.

ChrisReynoldsVery good film.Perfectly captures Martha's feeling of paranoia and dread in the present-day timeline. The only problem is that the cult leader looks so much like Charles Manson that it becomes obvious that the flashback timeline is heading towards the "family" murdering somebody.10 years 9 months ago
the3rdmanHad a spare but unsettling style that sometimes reminded me of Badlands. Its ambiguity worked for me because it reflected Martha's fractured self and sense of the past. 10 years 9 months ago
