Greta (2019)

Greta (2019)

Rated R for some violence and disturbing images

[Image: Greta_poster.jpeg]

Quote:Frances finds a handbag on the New York subway and promptly returns it to Greta, an eccentric French piano teacher who loves tea and classical music. Having recently lost her mother, young Frances strikes up a seemingly harmless friendship with the lonely and kindly widow who enjoys her company. But when Greta's behavior becomes increasingly erratic and obsessive, Frances does whatever it takes to end the toxic relationship before things spirals out of control.

I had a good time watching this. It felt like a throwback to '90s stalker thrillers, complete with a gloriously campy and over-the-top villainess who needs little explanation for her actions beyond "she's crazy". The writing was pretty shallow, but the two lead actresses, Isabelle Huppert as the stalker and Chloe Grace Moretz as her victim, both sold this film and elevated it above what could've been just cheap trash; sure, they're both playing to their types, but there's a reason why they're both typecast in parts like these, and it's because they're good at it. Maika Monroe was also good, especially a great bit she gets towards the end. These sorts of thrillers have seemingly died out in recent years, and this probably won't bring them back, but it's still a fun trip down memory lane to a time before superheroes dominated the theater. I can see this getting a fair bit of play on Netflix.

My full review is here.

Statistical fact: Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why?
They fear this man. They know he sees further than they and he will bind them with ancient logic.

Society is binding. Right? It’s filling in the cracks with concrete. Everything’s filed or reported, logged, right?
Chips in our kids heads so they won’t get lost. Society needs to crumble. We’re all just too chicken shit to let it.

It`s a survival thing. I made a lot of devil`s bargains and I stuck to them. As a result I live somewhat dangerously and quite comfortably. And my mother, who no longer recognizes me, has the best room in the clinic. I get up every morning, put on my game face and do what I have to.

Ser Jaime Lannister. On the breast of his tunic, the lion of his House was embroidered in gold thread, roaring its defiance. they called him the Lion of Lannister to his face and whispered “Kingslayer” behind his back. Jon found it hard to look away from him. “This is what a king should look like”, he thought to himself as he passed
