Moonlight

The beginning is full of humor, suspense and provocation,  but leads nowhere. Weak scenario.

The Gift (Joel Edgerton, USA 2015)

The Gift

The script hesitates between a few genres (horror, thriller) before opting for a bully-victim relationship that loses much of its dramatic content along the way. An identical indecision hovers over who is the main character of the movie: Simon (Jason Bateman)? Robyn (Rebecca Hall)? Gordo (Joel Edgerton)?
