Spa Night

Oh yeah, I forgot that I could write something about the movie here… I was futzing around with the streaming setup and stuff. This movie is only available in the US, so I had to resort to nefarious means to watch it.

I like the general look of the movie — it moves slowly but in an assured way, and the actors are really good. But the basic plot here is very strange indeed — it seems like it’s happening in the … 70s? 90s?

I guess the time period is… “now, but forget about cell phones, because then the plot wouldn’t quite work, OK?”

I like the movie, but… It’s hard to get over how much that final sauna scene didn’t make much sense.

Spa Night. Andrew Ahn. 2016.
