Shocktoberfest 2017! Day Eleven: Evolution

Evolution (2015)

Written by Lucile Hadzihalilovic & Alante Kavaite / Directed by Lucile Hadzihalilovic



I'm honestly still trying to figure this one out.  I liked it, but I'm still trying to figure out why.  Lucile Hadzihalilovic has created a fascinating nightmare fantasy world that thrives on oneric logic and imagery.  The film is hypnotizing and always beautiful, even when the narrative is cold and distant.  It's the type of film where everything is a metaphor.  For what exactly?  That's for the audience to figure out, and it's not going to be easy to figure out.  It's going to take you a long time before you can decipher just what Hadzihalilovic had intended.
