The Second (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Second
"The Second" is a sexy and satisfying thriller that toys with time, memory and the provocative side of storytelling.
Director Mairi Cameron creates an prestige aesthetic that affects a sense of haunting isolation, and writer Stephen Lance's script manipulates time and memory to weave a disturbing tale of creation. What secrets are entangled in this fiction?
Mairi Cameron's feature debut is a pretentious psychodrama with a strong cast struggling to sex it up and a sneaking suspicion that we're all being infuriatingly misled.
A mostly engrossing mystery-thriller anchored by terrific performances by Rachael Blake and Susie Porter, though in the end it's a little unmoored by its own unnecessary tricksiness.
This stupendously pretentious Australian drama is so one-of-a-kind awful, making another would just kill its chances of unwittingly becoming a cult/camp classic.
