Believe it or not, it shouldn’t be in theaters!
The movie is called “The Show”. I picked it up for a casual viewing with a friend. We prepared ourselves to watch a normal movie, not necessary fantastic. We thought that the poster was having something, but our expectations were completely the opposite.
Actually we were not able to watch after the 2nd suicidal action, so we paused it for a little bit in order to be continue, but then I left the setting leaving my friend who wanted to write a feedback about it, and for that purpose only she continued till the end. It felt disgusting. I’m not sure that I would call this movie a civilized art.
My other point is that, if we’re fighting suicide, why should we encourage it with movie like that. Isn’t it obvious that any depressing suicidal person could act according to the notions in that movie?!
Since we don’t want to be bias, here’s additional viewpoints that we present for the movie.
I hope you rate it Zero as we all did. In the meantime, it should be having something like “X” instead of “R”, coz it shouldn’t be allowed for mentally disable people or minors.
Neither sharp enough to qualify as satire nor emotional enough to be a standard drama, “The Show” exists in film purgatory.
Early promise quickly evaporates once the film sheds its smirk and turns increasingly sanctimonious.
It’s cast mostly with small-screen actors, looks like early-aughts TV, and raises indefensible moral dilemmas that movies like “The Hunger Games” have long since rendered moot.
There’s plenty of emotion but precious little sense packed into this acerbic media satire that winds up more heavy-handed than provocative.
This Is Your Death is a brilliant concept, but tonal mishandling makes for another media takedown that’s all bark and no bite.
