I quickly lost any interest in the fate and pretentious musings of all of the shallow, insipid, self-obsessed characters. Tilda Swinton was not good and was very unconvincing as a rock diva - the flashbacks were cringe worthy. Only one character dies which was a big shame as the rest were just wasting space.

Way too slow in getting where it was going. Maybe a little undeveloped - did leave you wondering about some of the background stories of the characters. Also, a few unanswered questions during the film which I guess added a little mystery and left you wondering. Thanks for the opportunity to see this and definitely not sorry we went.

The Verdict : Yum Ralph Fiennes. Very art-housey, but ....wayyyy....tooo.....slow...moving.
Well-crafted, great detail, however meandered quite a bit and only picked up suspense in last half hour.
Redeeming feature was the music score.
In a misguided quest perhaps to be a forerunner in flipping the tables and getting away from the female nudity scenes, this errs too much on the flip side and ends up with too many (in my opinion) gratuitous views of male nudity.

To be fair my expectations were not high. I went because my partner wanted to (He quite liked the film), and ended up sitting through 2 hours of utter drivel parading itself as art.
God knows why most of the cast got involved in this mess, Maybe there is a great directors cut somewhere, but I doubt it.
Maybe it European sensibilities are lost on my. I'd rather the film... More was just lost.
Thanks for the chance to watch it for free though :)Hide

Beautiful photography - I just want to go to Italy now - a beautiful setting! I hadn't heard much about this movie before I went - so not really au fait with the story line. I thought Fassbender was A-mazing. Tilda Swinton, not having a lot of speaking parts, got her messages across just fine. Dakota Johnson was a surprise - I enjoyed the character she played. Made me go home to read up more about the story line etc.

Ralph Fiennes delivers a fantastic performance but A Bigger Splash does have some pacing issues. It delivers as a psychological drama but takes a bit of time to get there. It focusses on the unspoken which adds to the tension and is overall a satisfying if mildly satisfying watch.
