Some movies are meant to be watched solely upon their topics of interest, they may be very interesting and might make you see things differently. Still not all of them are well done. But this drama movie from 2011 was one of the good ones and I really recommend this movie to everyone.
This movie deals with family matters inside a family where not all is what it seems to be. A strange son manipulates and despises his mother so much it almost drivers her to insanity. But will Kevin only make his mother feel bad? As he grows up he manages to become stranger and stranger until something snaps and his actions are almost surreal…
I admit it, the first twenty minutes was annoying. The flashback was all a blur and I hated that. This is one of those movies where the plot starts a little slow and in the end you understand everything. I do not really like those kind of movies and therefore I hoped some mysterious person would show up and shoot the characters in their heads.
The story is really complex and it was interesting to see the story behind what leads to all those crime documentaries. I never like watching all the happy families with their perfect lives because that is not haw life works. So it was interesting to see the manipulation and the things Kevin did. For some reason I’m not sure I remember the last minute of the movie correctly but it was interesting to se how it all revolve itself in the last section of the movie.
As far as the acting goes I do not really have any comments, it was not great but it was certainly not bad. Once again I would like to underline that this movie is a great look inside a dysfunctional family gone wrong and even if the beginning may be annoying it is worth watching it. 8 / 10
