_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
**The trouble that had never let her alone.**
A story about America, Hollywood cast, but produced and directed by outsiders. A powerful film. Kind of mix of ‘No Country for Old Man’ and ‘Les Miserables’. The narration divided into four parts. The first episode called Revelation. An introduction life around Liz, but full of suspense after every unexpected turn in the story. Then in the second episode called Exodus, a young girl, Joanna introduced and following the third knows as Genesis, goes ever further back into Joanna’s life, before returning to Liz’s in the fourth known as Retribution.
Maybe Dakota’s best performance being an adult actress. As well as the young actress Emilia Jones. They both had played the same character, but in a different timeline. Interestingly, in real life, they share the same birth day and month as mine. From one of the film poster, I thought it was Michael Sheen. Only realised while watching the film that it was Guy Pearce. From writing to the making, it was a very good film. But the story could make some people uneasy. Because everything that’s happened between the people and their relationship, not for soft guys. Yet it is a must see thriller, a must see western.
How Might Be the Heart of Someone that Writes Such a Story?
“Brimstone” is one film that arises emotion and stays in the viewer. The long and realistic story is one of the gloomiest, most depressing, cruel and unfair without redemption ever written. However, let me make clear that the film is excellent and the viewer shall not give up watching in the beginning. The screenplay divided in four parts – Revelation, Exodus, Genesis and Retribution – is perfect, disclosing the non-chronological saga of the protagonist Liz / Joanna. The cast is magnificent, with Guy Pearce representing the personification of evil and Dakota Fanning difficult to be recognized in the role of a “cursed” woman, supported by Carice van Houten and Kit Harington. The locations, costumes and cinematography are top notch and the haunting music score is also magnificent. The only question that remains is how might be the heart of someone that writes such a story? My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Amaldiçoada” (“Cursed”)

NB: THE SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW ARE OF MINOR IMPORTANCE.
As my headline says, I feel I was frauded into seeing this movie by its plot summary on this site and some user reviews glorifying it.
The plot summary goes: “A triumphant epic of survival and a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Our heroine is Liz (Dakota Fanning), carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher (Guy Pearce) – a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she’s no victim – a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve…” User reviews go: “Terrific”, “Best movie of LFF this year”,”Dark, violent and depressing – wonderful”, “Super powerful”, “Simply amazing”, “Original” etc.
I say this much is true that it is violent, dark and utterly depressing. All the characteristics I do not tend to have problem with – I love dark dramas and gory horror films. What I have a problem with is the lack of everything else. THERE IS NO TRIUMPH IN THIS STORY. IT DOES NOT EMPOWER WOMEN OR DEPICT THEM AS STRONG SURVIVORS. OUR MAIN CHARACTER (AS EVERY OTHER WOMAN THERE) IS A VICTIM. She continues to be a victim throughout all the bloody movie. She is no fighter but victim and escaper who lets everyone else die fighting for her or just because knowing her. This is two and a half hours long torture porn and eventual death of a villain in a completely unsatisfying manner does not make it triumphant.
Showing the life of wild west from women’s non-enviable pov was an admirable effort, but the overly powerful (semi-immortal???) villain, story that didn’t know did it want to be harsh reality tale or dark mystic thriller, lack of power in every female character etc pulled it down into just some depressing tale that goes on and on and on and on and then suddenly ends without pulling the ends together.
I suspect that it ticked the right boxes to get high votes: European writer/director, overall depressing feel, a story that is messy and full of holes so film hipsters can call it “thought-provoking”… Yup, for aforementioned wannabes it is probably a good tone to praise the movie 😛
Cinematography was great. Also acting.
