Review of Sleeping Beauty
A film that lives in the negative space of emotional performance, Sleeping Beauty (directed by Julia Leigh) raises more questions than it answers, and as such, it leaves an indelible impression on the viewer’s consciousness for a long time after it ends. Standout performances are turned in by both lead, Emily Browning, and supporting actor, Peter Carroll. I have never seen the technique of breaking the fourth wall more effectively used than during Carroll’s monologue. Available on Netflix, Sleeping Beauty is more than worth a watch in the right setting (read: this movie will be most comfortably watched without company). Any serious thinker will appreciate Sleeping Beauty’s ambiguous moral complexity and tenacious portrayal of a complex cast of characters.
- This show is visual literature. Is anyone else loving it?
