What a joyous, happy, romantic holiday romp. It even has little kittens in it! Martha Marcy May Marlene is just the movie to bring a tear to the eye and a smile to the lips ….. if you are Charlie Manson. Whoa, dogs, this movie is CREEPY! The time and memory juxtapositions keep you on your toes as you follow Martha/Marcy May in her journey from commune life to bitchy sister. The hippie life seems so idyllic and the normal life so restrained and confining until the memories start haunting …. haunting.
Not wanting to give too much away, the movie is not for the faint of heart and the ending is ….. whoa! See it at your own risk - it is a well constructed movie of a disturbing topic.
