Don't know how I missed this one, probably got lost in a sea of worthless Hollywood comedies with similar covers. Altough never stated, Charlize Theron's character's main problem isn't that she's an alcoholic but that she's a textbook example of someone with borderline personality disorder. In light of that there's more depth (and hope) to the tragic aspects of this dark comedy.. credit to Diablo Cody.
Also an unusual perspective cuz in Hollywood culture it's usually male characters that refuse to mature and grow up, if it's a woman there's usually a redeeming reason for it, like an external factor.. Not here though, she's just a loser and that's why her journey is interesting.
Though like Ebert said, it's one of the unusual examples of an unlikeable character that we actually like even less towards the end than we did in the beginning.
Vivarium  +++/++ A couple is forced to play House in a suburb with no end where they're the only habitants. Anyone familiar with the Twilight Zone will know what to aspect. Feels more like a short film stretched to feature lenght but fascinating throughout nontheless.. in the most superficial way.
Invisible Man  +++++ Best movie of the year that I've seen so far. Contrieved at times, but if you go into it as pure entertainment about gaslighting with an twist on 'The Invisible Man' it's treetrunking awesome. Definitely added to my list of Noughties horror essentials, alongside 'Hereditary', 'It Follows' and 'The Vvitch'.
The Lighthouse  +++/++ The symbolism is kind of the driving narrative here but since I'm not very interested in - or bothered to polish up on Greek mythology and legends of the ocean I'm pretty much stuck with two lighthouse watchmen drinking, fighting, farting, making up, repeat.
The Hunt  +++/++ Well, this was cathartic: Smug SJWs portrayed as scum for once. Times they're 'a' catching on. In its greatest moments it resembles 90's Tarantino.
Color Out of Space  ++/+++ It kind of drags on with no place to go. The color is prettiiii though.
