Summed up in a sentence? Confusing, bizarre, kind of brilliant.
Pretentious attempt to break into the spare part sub genre of body-horror Sci-fi. Boring, no sensical and convoluted - all of which I think the director thought was a good thing. Save yourself and go and read ‘Spares’ by Michael Marshall Smith instead.
Boring and a dumb concept from start to finish
Not my thing
High concept fashion wow. Stylish, well acted, amazing ideas. Body horror meets black mirror espionage thriller. Really worth a watch.
