Scraps: “Force Majeure”

Director: Ruben Östlund
Cinematographer: Fredrik Wenzel

  • It’s getting kind of weird that I’ve unintentionally been seeing films that explore the toxicity and fragility of male masculinity.
  • Beautifully shot. The way the film looks help elevate the sense of discomfort and isolation.
  • Children are scary, but also realizing that you are stuck in a relationship and had built your entire structure of self-worth around an unreliable person is scarier.
  • This movie brings out a lot of droning anxieties around the prospect of a nuclear family.
  • A very dark movie in ways that get under your skin slowly, the fact that it’s very aesthetically pleasing really helps make it a little more terrifying.
