Critic Reviews for Magic Magic
Silva, like all good film-makers, is a magician. But thanks to the last-minute fumbling, we're left with a broken spell.
Magic Magic is skewered on the horns of a dilemma, uncertain whether it's a horror film or a psychological drama -- and it doesn't work especially well as either.
Juno Temple is sensational in this assured psychological thriller from Sebastián Silva.
Another satisfyingly nasty and well-controlled work from Silva.
The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable: the performances are strong, the photography is crisp and immersive, and the mood is ripe and ominous.
Audience Reviews for Magic Magic
The title here is what I quibble against, leading unsuspecting audience-types like myself to suspect supernatural elements in this story when in truth there are none. THERE ARE NONE. A young woman on vacation loses her true north and the people with her wonder what to do about it. Annnnd ... roll credits. "What?! That's it?!" Yep. That's it.
I think this is marketed badly. It's not a thriller at all - it's about mental illness. Juno temple and Emily Browning do well here. The rest of the cast are irritating. The movie moves slowly and the ending isn't really what you would want to see either. I liked it, but it's not entirely engaging and I wouldn't watch it again.
