A Cure For Wellness (2017)
Critic Consensus: A Cure for Wellness boasts a surfeit of visual style, but it's wasted on a derivative and predictable story whose twists, turns, and frights have all been more effectively dealt before.

Critic Reviews for A Cure For Wellness
If Verbinski had brought pace, the film might have worked, but he takes an eternity, then throws it all to the winds with a finale that's remarkable silly, even in this fanciful neck of the woods.
[The] poor ending felt like a betrayal, since it wrenches A Cure for Wellness fully out of its original genre and into melodrama.
One can only imagine that, given that there's little gore or sex, the restricted entry level is designed to protect younger viewers from the deeply upsetting feelings of frustration and irritation that emerge once it becomes clear that nothing is working.
Unanswered questions pile up, until only one remains. Could this be the stupidest third act EVER?
The movie's operatic claustrophobia makes its mark. Cult status beckons.
Audience Reviews for A Cure For Wellness
A Cure for Wellness is most certainly not going to be for everyone. It's spectacularly, deliberately, uncomfortably ugly (albeit, in a bizarrely beautiful way). It's story is flawed, it's long (two and a half hours all told), it's slow, some of its setups don't evolve into payoffs, it's not half as mysterious or clever as it might think it is, and it can't even hold to its own mythology 100%. But I loved it.
The visuals are stunning, but the movie is too long and messy in terms of ideas or whatever it wants to say, to the point that it doesn't make any sense and seems more like an amalgam of a lot of things that worked infinitely better in other movies (like Shutter Island).
A little bit too long... but still an overall pretty good movie.
