“John and the Hole” Sundance 2021 Review

I’m gonna be repetitive as hell and say how much this feels like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie. With the out there plot, as well as a dark and sinister feel.

I honestly didn’t expect much from this, mostly just joking: “What if there was a hole”. And I probably still will. But I liked this more than I thought that I would! It has a hole! And John! What more could you ask for?

I do think this film would have been bumped up for me had the ending changed. It does feel a bit weird to have a.. happy ending for lack of a better term. It just doesn’t feel right for this movie. I think that last pool scene should have been it.

But alas, it was not. Charlie Shottwell was pretty good in this. A bit stiff at times with dialogue but overall I liked the performance. Everybody else was pretty good too. I bet this is gonna be picked up by Blumhouse. I don’t think it has the appeal of A24 like people are saying it does. But I bet Blumhouse could market this pretty well!

My Rating: 2.5/5
