A Cure For Wellness (MA15+) Lockhart, an up-and-comer on Wall Street, is sent to the sanatorium to retrieve his chief executive, Pembroke, who is a patient. Lockhart is not there as a patient, as he impatiently tells everyone, but unexpected events extend his stay. Gore Verbinski’s gothic psychological thriller is absorbing. It will keep you guessing until the almost unbelievable ending. The tension is tight as a straitjacket. There are red herrings everywhere, figuratively, and large eels where they shouldn’t be, literally. There’s a surreal art to the camerawork: we feel the cold beauty of the main setting, the foot of the Swiss Alps, and the even colder climate of the sanatorium perched there.
