Finally got to see this

Been waiting awhile to watch this take on "what if mutants (X-men) started popping up in the real world?" Suspenceful script, taut direction and an excellent cast elevate this fine indie flick. Bruce Dern and Emile Hirsch star in this sci-fi thriller and with those two you know the movie is off to a good start. The claustrophobic atmosphere and smart script literally kept me on the edge of my seat for much of the picture. Really enjoyed it, well done.

Pretty Enjoyable Ride

Freaks starts out (or so you think) as a film which promises to deliver some uncomfortable moments between an over-protective dad who may or may not be outright crazy as well as possibly dangerous, and a cute, socially inexperienced, awkward and defenseless little girl. If you know nothing about the film going in, like we did not, upon viewing the first few scenes, naturally, your mind can't help but run to all kinds of dark places, wondering where the filmmaker is going to take us. Well, where it goes, although the ride stagnates at times, are dark and eerie places touching on the horror genre, and then surprisingly, it pulls back and takes an unexpected left turn into something completely different. Much of the supporting cast isn't anything to write home about, however, the outstanding performances by the two leads, especially Lexy Kolker as the little girl, and her dad, played by Emile Hirsch, pretty much carry the film. Bruce Dern also delivers, if not a great performance, at least a mentionable one. His role in their lives unravels slowly and is not completely understood until somewhere in the middle of the film. It takes a while to discern what his purpose truly is and for the viewer to see the entire picture. I enjoyed that. I also liked that the film lets the viewer decide for themselves if what they've witnessed is abuse, trauma, or something else entirely. I also like that while I believe the characters are used as a stand-in or metaphor for discrimination, it isn't anything that is heavy-handed or overtly pushed. All in all, I found Freaks to be entertaining, and that its concept had been well-executed and delivered. The journey, despite the twists and turns, was captivating, and the destination was 99% pleasing, if not 100% where I wanted to go.

I want to see more

Wow what a nice surprise. It's really quite good. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not at first which is probably why I did but in all honesty I think this movie is at least a 7.5 to 8 out of ten. You don't have to be a die hard super hero fan to enjoy it either, this is definitely one you can watch with the girlfriend, just don't expect loads of action or interdimensional space gods battling to save the planet, it's much slower paced than that and much more intriguing. I loved it, it's a must see from me.
