[5.25/10] We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2019)

We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2019)

Quick Review: It wins some points for atmosphere and dread, as well as the sinister old mansion setting, authentic vintage feel, and above all the superb cast, with Stan deserving a special mention for his nutty turn, but this old school mystery drama about isolation and paranoia is way too low-key in its approach, despite the surprising amount of violence it contains, and this profound subtlety often works against it, even during the ghastly tragic finale.

Too low key? Shame they didn't step it up a notch.

Alex, yeah, way too subtle.
