Thou Wast Mild and Lovely

Thou Wast Mild and Lovely

Directed by Josephine Decker

The arrival of a handsome new farmhand named Akin (Joe Swanberg, V/H/S) threatens the balance between a farmer (Robert Longstreet) and his daughter Sarah (Sophie Taub). Sarah sets her sights on Akin, and he too begins picturing her while pleasuring himself. As the three characters circle each other, the tension simmers until exploding in a very scary way. To say more would give away the offbeat pleasures of Josephine Decker’s acclaimed film, which critics described as “existential horror” similar to the work of arthouse directors David Lynch, Terence Malick and Ingmar Bergman.

Scary tensions build when a farmhand comes between a farmer and his daughter.

Cast: Joe Swanberg, Sophie Traub, Robert Longstreet

I didn't get it. Too artsy fartsy for me.

The unnecessary zoom on the camera work is a serious piss off, the story might have had actual potential if they didn’t absolutely ruin it with the shoddy cinematography.

Absurdist and atmospheric, looks beautiful, but I wouldn't stand watching it a second time nor recommending it. Disturbing but wishes to be more than it is.

Good, unsettling, drags a bit, worth it for the payoff in the last like, three minutes of the movie.
