"I was surprised by how much I disliked this movie. For all the acclaim, I thought I would have loved it. The first act was intriguing, but the plot line with the therapist took me out of the movie, first because all of the decisions the therapist made were terrible (another example of writers not knowing how to write decent/realistic therapists) and then because her relationships were so hollow and bizarre."

"I understand that it's kino for theoretical reasons, but really did not enjoy watching it. The acting is good, the cinematography is good, the writing is good, my rating just reflects how the movie made me feel. I get that it's a satire and plays with some horror/thriller motifs, I just found it difficult to watch. The characters all treat each other so terribly. Relating to any of them would be a scary realization."

"Thoroughly enjoyable, except a bizarre sexual encounter and that it falls victim to the "writers don't know how to write a realistic, good therapist" problem. The story is great, though, a delightful mix of quirky and sentimental."

"All due credit to this pillar of science fiction; the ideas just aren't developed enough and the pacing too slow to hold up in 2019. The premise is fantastic, though."

"Some stories are stronger than others-- it's a film that seems like it's asking film/folklore students to write a paper about it. Chock-full of that signature Cohen-brothers irony, but with rare moments of poignancy, too."
