    That has to be one of the best jump scares in recent years. Got me good. 1 year 12 months ago

    Whether the supernatural stuff in Saint Maud is really happening or just in the protagonist's mind is a matter of what you want to (or can) believe as an audience member, which mirrors the exploration of Maud's own faith in a way. She's a zealous at-home nurse caring for a dying hedonistic dancer (is it just me, or could Jennifer Ehle play Meryl Streep in a movie?), a set-up that invites corruption in a Black Narcissus kind of a way. Narcissus is actually a good mythical figure to bring up in this context because Maud falls into a particular Christian trap, that of Pride. Though her relationship with God is nothing short of rapturous - with libidinous undertones of lesbianism and masochism - her belief that God has a Purpose for her with a capital "P" and that she might be this dying woman's "saviour", is pure hubris. Writer-director Rose Glass has looked at the Lives of the Saints and Martyrs and asked, what if these kinds of stories were to happen today... Would we interpret them as testaments to faith, or delusions of a diseased mind? Though stylistically in the same vein as most "serious" horror films these days - desaturated tableaux and thrombing music - Ross has a couple new tricks up her sleeve, like when the movie essentially speaks in tongues. It may be too "psychological" for most people's horror section, but it certainly delivers quality disturbia. 1 year 2 months ago
