“A Cure for Wellness,” directed by Gore Verbinski

Movie, 2016

A film full of stunning visuals and great ideas, which takes too many opportunities to show as much. A film, then, in dire need of an editor. The overall feeling of confusion may, in fact, be a result of there being too many themes, tropes and plot lines, which build and dilute any central thrust at the film’s core. But still, horror and mystery fans should be fully entertained and those who like open ended mysteries, action and an existential or gothic onslaught will have plenty to go on here. A film which looks great, is well done, but which carries too much baggage and outstays its welcome.
