[6.75/10] The Beguiled (2017)

The Beguiled (2017)

Quick Review: Arguably Coppola's finest film yet, "The Beguiled" is an absolute work of delicate beauty -- the pale colors and low-key lighting clash with the warm, southern feel of the setting, but also create a subtly Gothic, obscure tone that works in harmony with the grim nature of the story, which appears a bit superficial and lusty at first, but becomes more grisly and ambiguous as in unfolds. The brilliantly-acted characters play with their frailty and vulnerability in a tricky, insidious manner.
