I Think We’re Alone Now

on

I Think We’re Alone Now is beautiful, melancholic, introspective, cold, and sad.

The atmosphere and cinematography and tone and color pallet are just absolutely amazing.

For the first two thirds of the film.

This film would have been much, much better without the crazy third act. The post-apocalypse faux-utopia is heavy-handed and completely out of touch with the tone and theme of the rest of the film. It is barely introduced, hardly explained, and easily forgotten.

It’s too bad, really. I would have loved a whole movie featuring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning surviving in a post-apocalypse world and jamming out to Rush.
