It’s a long, burning, unbroken closeup of an Academy-favoured actress but this shot of Nicole Kidman in Chan Wook Park‘s Stoker is in some ways closer to the hammer fight in Oldboy than it is to Anne Hathaway’s big song in Les Miserables.
This is vicious stuff.
What an absolutely horrendous woman.
Stoker will be along at the beginning March. It looks to be absolutely essential viewing.
