[5.50/10] Sleeping Beauty (2011)

Sleeping Beauty (2011)

QuickRating: While "Sleeping Beauty" is an impressively well filmed debut feature from Australian director Julia Leigh, it's a grim, bizarre and rather unpleasant experience, that shocks with its perversity and disturbing sexual content. Don't get misled by the title, because apart from the stylish production design and refined cinematography, there's nothing beautiful about this dull, uneven, and painfully slow erotic drama.

Erotic dramas are always hit or miss for me. It seems like they can be very good or very bad. If you find it dull, uneven and painfully slow, chances are I will too. Do you think I should give it a shot?

Mel, it sounded interesting on paper, but it was lacking in execution. I hate lazy pacing, and this one was beyond lazy. Looked pretty though. I think you'd better skip it, hon.

Thanks! I will avoid. :)

Oh darn!! I kind of wanted to see this one. The trailer was a bit slow but slightly enticing so I was hoping their would be something there. However, I may like it since it slightly sounds like a disturbed Sofia Coppola film, haha. : )

Nicole, it's too sophisticated to be a Sofia Coppola movie. LOL. Give it a shot, you might like it more than I did. At least it was different...
