Gore Verbinkski's A CURE FOR WELLNESS (2017) - Page 3
So Verbinski takes a simple genre premise and tries to make it into a European art film. And fails. Miserably.
I mean, you have to be a real pompous asshole to make a 90 minute movie a 2.5 hour epic. You are not Stanley Kubrick. The script is too predictable, dull and stupid for the kind of movie Verbinski thinks he's making. Does he have final cut, but because I don't know what studio would allow such bloat when he's already known for bloated blockbusters, the last of which lost DIsney $200M.
And this is why it's great!
Yeah this movie is basically Verbinki's version of the Joker burning money meme. But I love it nonetheless. That freaking scene with the eels is one of the weirdest things I've ever seen (major studio or otherwise).
