When your character is consumed with insatiable curiosity and the only outlet you give her is sex, you're not trying that hard. On the whole, unimaginative, tedious, and not nearly as smart as it thinks it is.

To call Poor Things a feminist piece would demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding of feminism. While being misguidedly didactic, it’s also dismally unfunny and too much of a pantomime to carry any shred of emotional weight, with appalling performances and direction of the male cast and a truly moronic final act. The elaborate costumes and production design reek of a superficial desperation to create real art, and in the end it’s only Stone’s courageous turn which is worthy of any praise.

A disaster of a movie. The premise could be interesting to analyze matters of identity, of development (physical, neuropsychological) but, as usual with women's stories told by male directors, it focuses on sexuality. Based on her age, it's also a pedo movie. Suggesting that putting the brain of a young girl in a woman's body would lead to unabashed sexual appetite is terrifying. Making her choose to leave a weirdly-in-love man to go with a sleazy dude as 'experiencing the world' also is.

Yorgos’s best movie, and a serious contender for my top ten movies. It’s also his most emotionally resonant film by a landslide. I didn’t know he had it in him! Not a single thing I didn’t like. Production, music, directing and cinematography are all outstanding, and Stone is at her most unusual and her very best. I loved the supporting cast too. It’s just an excellent fish-out-of-water story with a lot to say about life and what we make of it. Immersed me from beginning to end. Phenomenal!

Did a movie about the blatant power imbalance associated with the BSY trope in which everyone acts like they’re in a SNL skit need to be 2 hours and 20 minutes long? It gets its point across very fast and eventually just indulges in its own perversion so the short answer to that is no. Giving a brave performance these days equals showing your tits, apparently.

Loved the way it looked. The fish eye hall way stuff was cool and the scenes in the park where it looked like a painting are standouts. Funny enough as well. Falls apart when you start thinking about what Yorgos was going for here tho. First as a trans allegory, seems a bit infantilizing and as this piece on womanhood? I mean it’s basically redpilled. Woman finds her liberation through becoming a sex object and a literal whore for men? I get liberalism has tied SW to liberation but Cmon now.

Not sure if there’s enough of interest in the last half-hour to justify the ham-fisted detour it takes, but otherwise, I unreservedly adored this. Laughed all the way through, and was engrossed by the vividness and singularity of this bizarre world. Emma Stone gives one of the year’s finest performances and Jerskin Fendrix’s score rises to the challenge set by the screenplay, costumes, and production design in creating its own indelible culture not quite like anything else I’ve ever encountered.

An absurd, witty-tongued, debauched twist on the archetypal princess fairytale of self-discovery. Lanthimos boldly steers some of the strongest art direction of 2023, resulting in true dreamlike visual & aural splendor. Despite it's surreal nature, the film's caricatures of personalities are captured with heartfelt sincerity, grounding the emotional beats. Poor Things is Barbie's whimsically unhinged elder sister; whom serves as a triumphant reminder of why we enjoy cinema, and (sometimes) life.

She was born sexy yesterday, but don't worry - the men who wrote and directed this made sure she was really obsessed with it and naked a lot. Liberating! There is a unique fairy story of growth and autonomy hidden in here, Emma Stone gives a strong performance, and apart from the sex obsession it really does feel fresh and exciting in its presentation. Everyone's accent was ATROCIOUS but Ruffalo (worst of the lot) was hilarious anyway.

what a fantastic film, Emma Stone's performance was astonishing, I think we can agree she played more than one character. kudos to other actors as well, I guess we take Willem Defoe granted but maye shouldn't. the film wasn't just a story, a lot of clever criticism of "the system" is in it, through the eyes of an outsider, many opportunities to laugh even in a stiff Swedish audience we had a ruckus several times in the movie hall and how visually pleasing this was truly a masterpiece.

There's maybe five minutes of story in there. And if you were to try and tell this story in five minutes I think you would *immediately* realise what was missing, why everyone in my audience left the theatre to go to the toilet at least twice, and why they greeted gag after gag after gag after gag with absolute silence. Is this what rich artists do with their money? Make vacuous projects that they PRAY will offend us all so then they can claim we just didn't get it? There's nothing in there.

Artful, yet something is missing to make it feel genuine. I've nothing against sexual content, but the abundance here seems a bit limiting on the storytelling potential, opting for visceral shock instead of philosophical depth. Many will be disgusted by this and there are questions about Bella's mental age. Ultimately, it's a surface-level criticism of men's desire for control that could have been a masterpiece. Terrific performances and production design though. It's also oddly funny in parts.

Emma Stone gives the performance of a lifetime, flanked by a mesmerizing cast with a hilarious Ruffalo being a stand-out among stand-outs. Lanthimos has managed to create a wonderfully absurd and unique take on Frankenstein, stylistically akin to hayday Jeunet (with a few digital sets being the movie's only small blemishes) but most definitely its own wondrous thing.

How can feminists & their mostly liberal defenders pretend that hating men is not a key part of modern feminism when feminists made this? Certain other feminists will claim this isn't feminist - but not because of its misandry. The "moral" of this fairy tale is clear: men are uniquely cruel, controlling & jealous {an absurd belief which ignores reality & evolution - which is why pregnancy isn't an issue here). The only decent men are black (of course) or biddable cucks who do whatever women want

I can't shake the feeling that I'm watching a genrepiece. Playing with form and reality is not automatically the same as playing with perspective; the latter is indispensable to be art, and I don't see it here. Who's watching? Who do I see? From whose eyes am I looking? The only answer seems to be: the idea of science, the idea of a person, an idea of form, a thought about sexuality. All of which points in the direction of a genrepiece.

I liked the slow reveal of the world instead of smacking you immediately with SO RANDOM. There was a lot more sex than I was expecting, not that I'm complaining.

Amazing journey of self discovery. The friction between the naive, empirically minded Bella and the expectations of a women's role in a vaguely Victorian England create a lot of great gags, humor and commentary. The set design and costumes are superior, feels like drifting through a story-book dream version of Europe.

I'm just gonna say sexual liberation is being highly overrated these years. If sexual commitment is not a big deal, why make the lack of it so critically empowering? It's funny cuz I happened to see a very similar idea on a random Onlyfans ad on X. Amazing play by Emma regardless. Fantastic scenery. Ridiculously nonsensical final act. The movie could have been much more in my view but basically only revolves around sexual liberation.

The director again explored the lives of less adult, sane personalities. What if you were born in an adult body, even though your brain is that of an infant? What would you do with your body? The movie was an adventure. The environment was fantasy, but still familiar. Emma Stone shone in the lead.

A bit of a weak start and finish, but when it got into its swing during the middle I was really enjoying it.

Great style once again from Lanthimos. It actually wasn't as weird as some of his other movies. A pretty straightforward story with a well-built-up narrative and good storytelling. I didn't really feel bored for a second, but I must say it felt a little too long at some point. However, I also wouldn't know what to cut from the story, as every part seems crucial for the premise. So, never mind that comment.

The introduction to this journey of self-discovery was promising, but our expectations, alas, were disappointed. Verbose and pretentious in all its aspects, the scenario goes too far in all directions, heavy with clichés and way too long. Redundant “moraline”. Even the baroque aesthetic becomes vulgar and badly faked at some point. I give some points to Emma Stone's performance and the design of some of her costumes.

While I do respect the craft on display and found enjoyment in Ruffalo's zealous and at times frankly borderline mad performance, no other aspect of the script came close to matching his funny character. So if I were to choose only one Frankenstein's monster variation between this and 'Chappie', this would not be my pick.

The design of this film is a real joy. Sometimes it feels like it's all taking place in a picture book with exaggerated colors and painted backgrounds, yet it isn't precious. It has the best fight that turns into a dance number that turns into another fight of 2023. Hanna Schygulla is in this film. Willem Dafoe blows bile bubbles. This is easily my favourite film of the year so far.

Apparently arthouse feminist films made and written by men are allowed to degrade, exploit and humiliate a woman (?) in the name of a muddy problematic moral message about sexual liberation(?). But of course, because "that's the entire point!". Shallower than a Sahara puddle. The film clearly enjoys and revels in gratuitous disgusting imagery which was disturbing, but also undermines the argument that it's a satirical crit. Style over substance in a film like this makes it a poor thing indeed.

Probably the most exciting part of this film was The Zone of Interest trailer before the film. Jokes aside, I am getting more and more disappointed in Lanthimos' English-speaking films. It is a remarkably designed, beautifully shot, well-acted mess. I miss his movies where we were able to reach deep issues through minimal stories. I am still glad that he is somewhat imposing his "unique" style on Hollywood.

Yet another incredible film from 2023. So fresh and original, very entertaining and funny, thoughtful and technically innovative, delightfully bizarre with amazing performances. Stone is unbelievably good in perhaps the most impressive performance so far this decade. What a character arc. She should win her second Oscar for this. Tim Burton has to be so jealous of this movie. The score is also perfect for it, perhaps the best of the year.

It's imaginative and wildly original on a technical level, and the performances are a treat - Emma Stone is fascinating, Willem Dafoe is effortlessly charismatic, and Mark Ruffalo is entertainingly unhinged. The outrageous premise is certainly thought provoking and somewhat troubling, yet everything's wrapped up in a bubblegum production design that screams empty-headed whimsy. It's a schizophrenic viewing experience for sure, but if you can get on the same surreal wavelength it's a lot of fun.

It'll win awards, deservedly so for Stone and any other actors. I like the exploration of society through the eyes of someone growing into the world. It's good to see a story with a woman taking charge of her sexual identity without the moral being "so she's a slut and thus is punished". The sheer amount of sex was starting to topple the film over (never thought I'd say that), but it's mostly a recommend, but with some careful "yeah, really" explanations of the rating.

For a moral about sexual liberation and growth, the message seems to get lost in the continual focus of sexualizing a child in a woman's body. Need to lay Emma Stone's unconscious body down in bed? Better get that nip slip in! I have no issue with sexual content when warranted, but this seems to twist the author's intent to the point of hypocrisy. The "lesson" is out of touch with what I'm watching. Surreal world, dark humor, philosophy, and extravagant fashion; I should love this, but I don't.

Yes, this is a film about female liberation, but more specifically liberation through fornication as a means to sexual gratification and not as a means of procreation. However, Bella is no mere hedonist, for her sensual development as a sexual being makes possible her noetic development, made evident by the stilted movements of Emma Stone’s body and her delightful verbal articulations. Mark Ruffalo as the Marlon Brando-like debauched dandy is the perfect foil for Bella as the 'new-age woman'.

One of the more wildly inconsistent films I've seen. Great: Emma Stone, set design, much of the dialogue, general art direction. Awful performances from some of the supporting cast, wretchedly bad last act with the childishly evil ex-husband. Cinematography was hit or miss too. I liked the experimentation with lenses, especially in the unsettling B+W section. Wasn't as enthusiastic with the oversaturated color thereafter. Worked thematically I guess.

In a lot of ways this is definitely a film made for critics and other like minded movie goers, not for general audiences. In that regard this truly is an astonishing work of art. The cinematography, production design, costumes, and score were all magnificent. The acting especially Emma Stone was outstanding.

This feels like Lanthimos at the peak of his powers having fun with his actors (and audience) – I’m not sure this is designed to be a mission statement or critique of feminism (or power dynamics etc.); it’s a let-it-all-hang-out silly comedy, elevated by extraordinary work from Stone, and a brilliant portrait of petulant masculinity from Ruffalo not seen since Michael Douglas in THE WAR OF THE ROSES! Beautiful set design and locales just the icing on this delicious and enjoyable cake.

An immensely designed film all over, some of it being strikingly unique (particularly Emma Stone's very exact comedic performance, a worthy Oscar win). Yet by the end, I couldn't help but wonder what the exact point of it all is, that the film is full of mini-messages and no overall thesis - but I still enjoyed it all. Didn't notice the similarities to Frankenhooker til it was pointed out - gave that a rewatch and it's oddly a superior film with a clearer message on feminism and objectification.

I love so much about this film: the unreal production design and costuming, the tight scripting which is both witty and thoughtful, Emma Stone's carefully structured performance as the newly built Bella Baxter, and - especially - the film's characterization of Bella as an adventurer and humanist who refuses victimhood. Still, while I love the individual components, I merely like the film altogether, as it perhaps doesn't quite have as much to say as those separate pieces may lead one to believe.

Although the start is a little underwhelming, "Poor Things" soon emerges as amazingly crafted on all levels, from the direction, photography and production design to the script, score and cast (Emma Stone and Mark Ruffalo in particular are excellent).

This film made me think of Phantom Thread from the very beginning. It clearly has shades of Frankenstein to it but Phantom Thread was the closest modern film that came to mind by way of comparison and somewhat thematically perhaps. Very quirky/arty, this is Emma Stone's film, she lives the character 100%.Its quite spooky and haunting. It has a quirky adult graphic novel feel to it, with cats eye lens camerawork. A film that has a Guillermo Del Toro feel to it, I would certainly recommend this.

Was expecting to like this film a lot more than I did given all the principals involved. Maybe the most visually entertaining Lanthimos film, it feels like a lot of flair was added around a story with nothing to say. If you take such a grand premise, with good actors, on beautiful sets, and deliver a conclusion that sex feels good, and that most men don't like women to be sexually liberated, it feels like a let off. Lots of laughs though

Basically a female Frankenstein Forest Gump. But the creepiness sucks a lot out of the movie. Why are these characters falling for Bella when she's basically a child? The rest of the movie is unsettling with a soundtrack that gets annoying. The style is interesting - kind of a fairy tale, colorful, trippy vibe. And although I didn't like it, it's shot in a unique way with fish eye lenses. Overall, it's a critic-fodder movie where you can talk about human nature. But it's not entertaining.

I didn't connect with this emotionally, but I remained totally entertained regardless -- from the lavish production to the fantastic performances to the remarkable screenplay, which would have completely turned morality tale but instead feels like it's authentically exploring the human condition, there's more than enough to feast on here. I'll understand any and all accolades this film collects.

Emma Stone's performance absolutely made Poor Things. Lanthimos' latest offering is also his most straightforward, which helps showcase his stylistic flair (the fisheye, the evolution of colour mirroring growing up...) but also highlights his lack of restraint. The 1st act is gripping, but the film drags as it goes on. At points it feels like film is trying to say something about women coming into their own, but defines all the men as Victorian stereotypes. Entertaining with some great dialogue.

Poor Things feels like a bizarre yet charming mixture of Lanthimos' signature elements, reminding me a little bit of each: The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and The Favourite. In a way it feels like the most accessible work by Lanthimos, whilst being the most bizarre. At its core, Poor Things is an enjoyable journey into human nature, elevated by Emma Stone's remarkable performance.

With Yorgos, you are guaranteed something interesting. Just a super wild and fantastical look at women's place in society. It definitely took me a bit to buy into the premise, but it's a lot of fun once you do. The one criticism is that I just could not enjoy the lenses they were using, which is a shame because the production design was otherwise so exquisite.
