Ingrid Goes West
We all know the habit is a tough one to break: the habit of constantly reaching for our phones, tablets, laptops and computers, so that we can keep up with the ever-changing world of social media; so that we can share more of our lives- in hopes of garnering more ‘likes’; so that we can feel like we belong, like we fit in. But, once you watch this month’s movie, and after the final moments have passed- after the lights come on and the credits start to roll, please resist the urge to grab your phone because, if there’s one thing you should take away from Ingrid Goes West, it’s that real life is the real story, and it’s happening right now, in front of you!
This film starts off really well. It has a good opening 20 minutes and draws you right into it. At first, the premise sounds good and it’s executed well.
Another 20 minutes or so go by. Still good and getting better.
Then by about the hour mark I’m guessing, it all starts to lose it. They just throw the current story out the window and it becomes quite silly. From here on, the rest of the film is silly and they rely on action to carry the film. Whilst the action is good, the film is no longer as tense as before due to it being quite silly and unrealistic now.
Not as good as Taken but better than Non-Stop, Unknown, The Grey…
