The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS -

Di­rected by Dar­ren Aronof­sky. Star­ring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bar­dem, Ed Har­ris, Michelle Pfeif­fer, Domh­nall Gleeson, Brian Gleeson, Kris­ten Wiig Lawrence and Bar­dem oc­cupy a house in an end­less nowhere. Their un­easy calm is dis­tracted when a cou­ple (Har­ris and Pfeif­fer) ar­rive rudely and un­in­vited. It be­gins as Who’s Afraid

of Vir­ginia Woolf and ends in a Grand Guig­nol of (we as­sume) metaphor­i­cal chaos. If you thought Aronof­sky’s Black Swan was over­heated then you are in for a proper shock. Kept aloft by a ragged, un­usu­ally dis­em­pow­ered Lawrence, the pic­ture re­mains, how­ever, a dis­gust­ing, dis­turb­ing feast for the senses 18 cert, gen re­lease, 120 min DC
