“A Cure for Wellness” is a beautiful looking and haunting mess

Wed, Feb 15 2017


Normally in the early months of a given year, the mainstream wide releases leave a ton to be desired.

A lack of expectations can sometimes be a film’s secret weapon. It’s not that I thought The LEGO Batman Movie would be bad, but it just wasn’t initially on my radar to any real degree.
