Two of the best working actors absolutely breaking your heart, with Haigh presiding over a powerful wistful story. Can you tell seeing this many films in such a short time is wreaking havoc on my brain and ability to write reviews yet

Get's lost in the sauce. Great performances, but the metaphysical malarkey that drives the plot is so poorly handled. Having his encounters with his parents take place in so many distinct ways, with each one seeming to have arbitrary rules, took me right out of the film.

Went into this knowing nothing, left feeling like I'd been punched in the chest. This film immediately brought me in with acting and story powerful and literal, and without hyperbole. I was too busy being captivated and enveloped in the basic core plots to notice the film tieing me up in dark suffocating layers; revealed powerfully, emotionally; taking your breath. Couldn't quite get up from my seat at the end. I'm sure there's some warmth to find in this film, somewhere?

I'll be in the minority here but this just felt like a throwaway Kaufman script drenched in syrupy sentimentality. Thankfully the camera work was gorgeous because I found it a real chore to care about the meta-mystery at the film's core. When the two narrative strands finally converge the film did pick up, introducing the uncanniness it was sorely lacking for a good 2/3 of its runtime. Interesting decision to end the whole thing on a gut punch like that... kind of too much too late, though.

The potential for genuine emotional effect is underhanded by self-seriousness, toppling the whole experience into melodramatic territory. However, the performances and photography are a tremendous accomplishment. A disappointment.

Cried *a lot.* The quartet of actors are all excellent. Maybe appreciated the final beat of the movie more intellectually than emotionally, but considering what a mess I was during the hour or so leading up to that, it could be called an act of mercy. Still, the more I think on it, the more devastating the ending gets. This one's definitely going to stick with me for a long time.

Does a lot of things right before eventually jumping the shark and the ending didn’t work for me at all, rendering a certain character completely pointless. But the performances are quite nice and I don’t think I’ve ever commended a film for its shot selection, switching between anything from a two-shot to a medium shot to a close-up at exactly the right moment.

Once you get over the somewhat contrived conceit of the film it’s pretty enjoyable and touching. After a stunning second film, Weekend, I fear Haigh has lost the plot a bit. None of his films have been bad per se but nothing has hit like that. Thats where he’s at his best, these small intimate moments.

Haunting in lots of ways-the Japanese influence definitely comes through-Andrew Scott is brilliant and 1980’s suburbia is so evocative.

This is an absolutely exquisite film. It manages to be primarily about the experience of being queer, specifically in the 1980's, but also has deep and resonant themes that are quite universal. It's about the simultaneous security and pain of being a child ... the way that people are probably never as happy and secure as they were with their parents, but also how the pain and trauma of childhood events can stay forever.

Metaphysically having a conversation with your parents about how they have shaped your character through their upbringing, the good and bad parts, is a very good idea and it's executed well. Slightly confusing but a lot to think about. The acting is top notch, as good as it comes, pretty much. I think probably a movie that will be perceived completely differently by everyone that watches it. For me, it was on the edge of too emotional, but it definitely worked. I can see ppl being wrecked by it

The photography is very nice (some shots are fantastic), the acting is good, the metaphysical premise is intriguing, and overall the film feels deeply personal and is mostly engaging. However, the end marks a quality dip, maybe because Adam's relationship with Harry is rather underdeveloped compared to the one with his parents, which is far more interesting. Also, the dialogues stay in the same area style- and content-wise throughout, and on the whole I wasn't as moved as was probably intended.

This is a film about parental/self acceptance/identity/isolation. Its bittersweet and poignant at times and does well at displaying the slowly growing relationship between two gay men, somewhat lost in their own way. There are some fairly graphic, low lit scenes of sex related activity, so if easily embarrassed, this may not be for you but its a good film for evoking an emotional response to the characters. Its a thoughtful film with a fair dose of social commentary & fragility. Recommeded,

Goes for the jugular, but ultimately I found more tenderness in the smallness of its moments, of its individual excavations of shattered relationships. These climax early to allow the love story in, and while I'm not dissatisfied with its turn, I do think the fantasy elements kind if slip through Haigh's fingers near the end. Still, this is thoughtful, sensitive writing with a beautiful performance from Scott.

When they start singing pet shop boys while decorating the Christmas tree I was nearly crying which I haven’t done in a long time at the cinema. Haigh knows how to craft these waves of emotion in movies. Even if they border on the saccharine

Heartbreaking sad. The movie is slow, but is supposed to be slow. A little bit more than half way through you start questioning what is real, and for good reason. I could very much understand his struggle trying to reconcile with his dead parents: would they accept him? reject him? Love him? I also thought he was someone trying to learn to love and accept himself. The end tho made me have more questions than answers.

In a quartet of very strong performances (I'm really surprised that this didn't receive more awards attention), Scott is pitch-perfect as the gentle soul who is trying to deal with a decade-long struggle with grief and loneliness. I usually find it difficult to accept magical fantasy elements in otherwise grounded stories but it makes a lot of sense here. (Spoiler: As for the final turn of the screw, I unfortunately saw it coming from a mile away but I like the ambiguity about a possible fire.)

Yalnızlığım yollarıma pusu kurmuş beklemekte. Eşcinsel 1 yazarın hayat hikayesini izliyoruz. Sevgilisi ve ailesiyle yaşadığı olayları, hayal etmesiyle bize aktarıyor. Etkileyici ama ağır. Aslında tempo hızlı olsa klasik 1 film. Hatta ters köşesiyle de ilginç. Çılgın 1 yanı da var. Altıncı His ve Diğerleri filmine göndermeler yapılmış. Filmin sonunda yalnız kaldım. Ben döşü kıllı erkekleri seviyorum.

Too abstract and messy for the most part, it’s the film’s haunting, deeply moving, and profound final act that truly makes it an outstanding piece of cinema.

I feel like I'm going to have to hand in my movie hipster card for this, but the nice visuals, soundscapes and the overall good acting only partially alleviated the fact that I ultimately found the premise and its execution a little boring. For your sad Mescal fix, please watch Aftersun first.

I mean... don't watch this if you miss your parents and their absence in your life, especially if you couldn't forgive them about whatever or couldn't get some sort of closure in your relationship. Or watch it, and allow the two songs to completely destroy you.

The premise is that he's coming out to his dead parents. Based on that, it's almost like an A.I-generated script in how automated, expected, ho-hum, inauthentic its procession. Even the homoerotic montages feel rigidly safe, tame and designed. I found it impossible to immerse myself and block out the constant awareness of this movie's artificiality.

So a gay man haunted by memories of his long dead parents, hooks up with a guy...who can also see his dead parents? Wait...what? Did I miss something? Was it not supposed to actually make sense? I just looked up the plot on Wikipedia...the lover dude was dead too? WTF?

Unfortunately, this remarkably beautiful, earnest film did not leave a noticeable mark on me. From the first shot you know you are in good hands. The cinematography here is both stylish and poetic, totally in sync with the story and the emotions at play. I can see how the story can hit on a primal level. For me, it just didn’t. The whole thing felt too personal, and I was not expecting (and thus did not like) the movie to be as "twisty". 95% sure I am in the wrong here. Will have to rewatch.
