THE PERFECTION (2019): The Thing I Liked…

Starring Allison Williams, Logan Browning and Steven Weber, The Perfection is a ‘darker than you expect’ drama / horror / thriller. Directed by Richard Shepard, the story follows a musical prodigy who sets upon a sinister path that begins with her seeking out the current star pupil of her former school.

I kind of already knew based on the trailer that Shepard’s movie wouldn’t be the most comfortable of viewings. I just didn’t know that within ten minutes into the film, a thought that crossed my mind would be ‘Am I ready for this darkness?

The darkness that made me uneasy wasn’t anything to do with physical violence, though there is some of that here. It was about the negative energy / vibe that seemed so easy for the audience to see, yet the person the ill-intent was aimed toward appeared completely oblivious. 

As far from comfortable as this movie made me feel for a number of reasons, I also found it quite engaging – even though something about its execution felt a tad rough around the edges. Another way to say it would be… ‘The Perfection is not like Green Book (2018)’. By this I mean, in The Perfection, every single scene didn’t flow perfectly without me having to pause and question any of the story, dialogue or general happenings. Additionally, the acting was OK but I did not get completely lost in the world of the story.

I say give Shepard’s movie a chance because it’s not quite what you think it’s going to be. You’ll definitely go on a ride that won’t be the most comfortable but everything kind of pays off in the most unexpected way.

There are also  one or two – perhaps more moments of stunning imagery. My favourite of which is at the top of this very post.

A sinister path with shocking consequences is what happens after a troubled musical prodigy seeks out the star pupil of her former school.

Directed by Richard Shepard; Allison Williams, Logan Browning Alaina Huffman and Steven Weber are the star of Netflix’s latest horror / thriller…

I think I’m ready for this dark tale of envy, yet the creepiness looks quite intense. In other words, I can already see myself sliding away into my t-shirt like a tortoise retreating into its shell. Especially when that poor musicians body starts getting messed with.
