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

A thoughtful film with moments of uncomfortable tension that is ultimately fairly predictable.

Mostly enjoyable, but neither solid enough nor consistently vague. The ending is shocking, but doesn't quite pull together quite enough. When certain things become literal, they need to also be made clearer.
