Colossal

April 17, 2017

Colossal is an art-house film in which Anne Hathaway’s character discovers she has a psychic link to a giant monster destroying Seoul.

Isn’t that such an amazing premise?

I’m not going to say much else because I’m writing a long-form review of this one for Lightspeed, but I wanted to get the word out that yes, I liked it, it’s clever and does some nice deconstruction of several tropes, and though the third act drags and turns really really dark, it majorly sticks the landing and makes it all worth while.

Since this is a limited release right now and isn’t likely to stick around for long, if you have any interest at all in quirky genre films you might check this one out. Even my friends who still haven’t forgiven me for dragging them to Snowpiercer liked Colossal.
