Mindblowing, for some maybe hard to understand (by attimano)
This is a really Mindblowing Title, one of the best movies form the past years.Its just that some People may not Understand it.The Ending will make you go like 'oooh what!!!' , as you will hopefully Understand the beginning and everything. The Plot may seem confusing, but its very well thought through:The girl may be an annoying Character, but it fits her role and the Male Main actor does a really good job.If you stop watching it after 30-40 mins, you will not understand anything of this Master piece.Camera 9/10 Plot 10/10 Acting 8/10If you like Movies where you stay confused, and <more>
the End just right Throws you an oh my god into your face, this is your Movie to watch.If you struggle to make connections and think films through, maybe you should watch it with more people, or not at all.
Incredible movie, instantly one of my favorite films of all time. (by edselgreaves)
I had the pleasure of finding this movie on Netflix and watched it because I was extremely intrigued by the unique title and the interesting poster attached. I loved this film so much I actually made an IMDb account to leave this review. This movie came to me at the right time. It seems to me the producers have been doing the same sort of esoteric research I have been because I could follow the plot with no problems at all from the beginning.The movie is atmospheric, colorful, creepy and haunting, everything you could want from a visceral indie film. The movie is clearly a mixture between <more>
some real life truths mixed in with a plot device first introduced by the Twilight Zone episode "Stopover In A Quiet Town". If you had trouble following the plot of the story, watch "Stopover In A Quiet Town" and you will understand it a lot more. The acting is ,at velour, particularly from the striking male lead who carries the progression of the film largely on his back alone. If this were more popular I would love to see this film nominated for an Oscar, but there's no way this little engine that could would be given a fair shot.Now for those who watched the movie but were unable to enjoy it because they couldn't understand the plot: Spoiler alert.Its a simulation matrix. A large part of the first half of the film takes place in a parallel universe, or an offshoot tangent. The original universe was the one where Scarlett messed around with the paraplegic. He eventually died because of her actions, and she feels no remorse. The paraplegic in this original universe is actually Alex. You can think of it as his soul. When he died, that universe ended and their souls were brought into this alternate parallel universe to interact again. This time they are young lovers. But it is Alex's destiny to kill Scarlett in retribution for what she did, and in doing so, free her soul. The masked man Alex sees from the hotel is actually him, again, from a different parallel universe. This version of Alex has managed to somehow cross dimensions to interact with his other selves, whom he reveals the nature of their reality to. Every time Alex dies in a universe, he wakes up in an alternate parallel universe playing different roles, but always destined to interact with Scarlett, until he finally does the deed and kills her, thus freeing them both from the simulation matrix. The fact that the entire movie takes place in parallel dimensions/a simulation is hinted at all throughout the movie. They can't leave the small town to go to LA, possibly because LA doesn't really exist since they are destined to stay at the small town. That's why Scarlett feels "crushed" whenever they try to leave. The strange motel they check into is actually on the same location as where Scarlett tortured & killed the paraplegic, hence it is where their souls must dwell until they leave the matrix. The house Alex wakes up in after the pastor shoots him is ALSO in the same location as the strange motel, its just in an alternate dimension. The masked man who is actually Alex from a parallel dimension" mentions "cities of pain buried underneath the ground" aka the different layers of each dimension all built on top of one another on the same place. The pastor tells Alex that it's true he is in a dream, but Scarlett's dream, then shoots him. This is true and proves a point: Alex can die a million times over, and the end result is that he will just keep waking up in a different dimension. He will only be released when he kills Scarlett, thus freeing them both from her sin. Its her loop, not his. Its truly an incredible film. If you didn't "get it" the first time, watch it again.
One of my favourite thriller movie (by mikafernandez)
I just loved this movie. I think it leaves a lot of questions in the beginning but in the end its all clear. He is a part of her that feels so guilty for what she had made, and then you see that it all happens in the sub-conscious of Scarlett. Plus, I loved the scene when he is about to kill her, and you find out that he is Wayne. I really like the work that Douglas Smith had made of it.
It would be a cop out to call this movie 'Lynchian' even though it does have some similarities to 'Lost Highway'. "Bottom of the World' is a well written and well crafted work of surrealism in the form a mystery. The mood is set early on and maintained throughout and for as 'out there' as it gets it has a ending that makes perfect sense and is satisfying. This movie deserves a much higher score than it's being given. Hollywood has dumbed down audiences so much that they are ill equipped to react with anything but anger to any movie that challenges them to <more>
think. If you like movies by David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman and Fellini and Ryan Gosling's directorial debut 'Lost River', I would say you should check this out. I don't think the haters will ever get it so I wish they would just not watch it instead of trashing it with their rating. I give this movie a solid 8 but to up the average I added a point. There needs to be more movies like this.
Best movie I've watched in a long time (by joostvg-916-3923)
I didn't understand anything in the movie until the end. It's weird, mysterious and screwed with a terrific ambiance. In the last 15 minutes things get cleared up. Watched the movie again and it's really good then! Even the somewhat dull acting from Douglas Smith makes sense in the second ride.If you're into straightforward Hollywood movies then you're not gonna like Bottom Of The World but if you're into somewhat alternative, weird psychological thrillers, this one is definitely for you!
Fever dreams of guilt and the after life make for a challenging concept (by gayleosman)
Anyway, this film was fairly fun if you like to think, figure things out. Like watching the 'best of' compilation of someone else's fever dreams. Bottom of the World delves under the surface, to the dark foundations that we embrace by night and ignore by day. This conceit is taken to a psychological level and into the disturbing unconscious mind of Scarlett Jena Malone and her creation of a new reality. The film leaves us with more questions than answers but hats off to trying to make something different and challenging to the viewer. I don't recall a film that was entirely <more>
a creation of the sub-conscious other than - Fight Club?
Mystified? Here's my interpretation -- A hypnotic meditation on the mysterious nature of the subconscious and its power. It is abstract and psychological at its core. The logic is skewed to be dreamlike and surreal, making more sense on a second viewing where I picked up on more visual clues and devices. I'd be curious how others interpreted it? Some posts I've seen think Alex exists, some don't. Any psychologists out there? Oh, and Jena Malone is really good as she delivers a sweet and devastating performance all at once. Where has she been? If you like tidy resolutions and <more>
optimistic fade-outs this film is probably not for you!
Here's what I took: The anecdote of her cousin Wayne that she tells in the beginning is true. At first I wrote the story off as a simple and needless tale based used for shock value poor writing , but it's so over the top and grotesque that as a viewer, it's so ridiculous that you don't want to believe it, or even regard it as a necessary bit of information because she tells it as a fake story to make Alex squirm. So you forget about it, because at this point, Scarlett is depicted as facetious and maybe a bit unstable. Jumping to the end, you find out that she really <more>
committed the heinous acts that she describes in the beginning. Alex is a part of her subconscious, the fact that he has developed sentience within her own delusion is a deeper part of her subconscious that is condemning her as she is unable to process her own guilt EG her heavy alcoholism . It's a very interesting way to tell a story, as she takes the backseat in the focal point of the story that is 100% in her own head. Now whether she is "delusional", or there are actual spiritual forces at work within the two realms of Alex's initial reality, and the second one where he is her neighbor is sort of up to interpretation. Notice the scene where Paige, Alex's wife is counting peas in the kitchen, and it immediately swaps to her holding a glass of milk, as if it's a glitch, this is a tell that he is not in the realm of true reality when they knew each other, or when they're neighbors. Alex is the embodiment of her guilt and shame and also the judgement of maybe a supernatural entity, so he isn't necessarily a person, more of a shifting presence. Alex never existed, she conjured him up.
