OK, well, this is going to be a tricky review, folks, because this is aweird movie, very weird. A Cure For Wellness has the great merit ofbeing different, and to reward the movie goer with something thatstands out from the crowd; but, once you have appreciated this aspect,you might also want to be rewarded with a kind of content that givesthe form some substance. And here is where A Cure For Wellness lets youdown. I thought the first part of the movie was very good (rating: 8):you are simply smashed by the oneiric, hypnotic power of the images, bythe stunning photography, by a breathtaking use of the camera, prettygood acting; and the intrigue created by the plot is such that you justkeep asking yourself where this can reasonably go. That should havebeen the job of the second part (rating: 2) , where instead most of thepotential built in the first half is wasted: the story, fromintriguing, turns silly; the mysterious plot turns into a surrealDracula movie which just does not make justice to itself.

As an avid movie goer, and occasional reviewer, I am one (like most) tonaturally flock to the reviews of Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, and theuser flooded IMDb... Verbinksi's A Cure For Wellness strikes allcategories on what a suspenseful "thriller" should be. I myself watchcountless thrillers, as they along with horrors, are my favorite genre.Upon seeing the reviews for A Cure for Wellness, I was bothdisappointed and worried... I had expected a much more positiveresponse, with not only a solid cast headlined by he greatly under-appreciated Dane DeHaan, but also a suspenseful and artistic director,in Gore Verbinksi. With that being said, this movie was phenomenal.
To actually describe this movie in a flurry of words, my choice wouldbe; eerie, suspenseful, captivating, and gorgeous. The movie itselftakes place in the Swiss Alps, at a mental institution "devoted tomaking you well again", and the colors, and abilities to exploit thesound effects, score, and draw you in with rather sexual andostentatious visuals, along with gory and disturbing ones is exquisite.DeHaan's role as Lockhart, is in my opinion, one of his best worksaside from Chronicle. I personally believe he is undermined especiallyafter a rather catastrophic blow from his depiction of Green Goblin inSpider-Man.
All in all, I would give this movie an 8.7/10, being that I was drawnin, and fell in love with both the visual appeals and the stunning workon color and sound, but also the fact that both DeHaan and Isaacs mademe feel as if I was a patient searching for a cure... This moviesatisfied my lofty expectations, and I felt not only like my demandswere met, but even exceeded. Gorgeous work and a very enjoyable movie.(AGE: 17+ for nudity/violence/language/grotesque scenes)
Gore Verbinski, the man who gave us the first "Ring" movie, the"Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, "Rango," and "The Lone Ranger" isnow back with this Hitchcockian Gothic psychological thriller designedto keep you guessing till the very end. Even though its final 20minutes somewhat go off the rails a bit, overall A CURE FOR WELLNESS isstunning, bold and hypnotic.
Dane DeHaan plays an ambitious young executive, Lockhart, sent toretrieve his company's missing CEO who's decided to stay at a remotewellness center in the Swiss Alps. What is supposed to be an easyassignment turns into a journey of slowly but surely uncovering thecenter's dark past, uncovering the real reasons as to why the guestskeep staying there, longing for the cure, as Lockhart himself starts toquestion his own sanity.
You will fall in love with the cinematography by DP Bojan Bazelli. Evenif you're not a fan of mystery or suspense, Bazelli's cinematographyfor "A Cure For Wellness' will leave you floored, the word breathtakingdoesn't even begin to fairly describe it. There are shots through thetunnel, around the castle, and even during some of the film's mostdisturbing moments, they draw you in, gorgeous in every possible way.And the fact that they actually filmed a big chunk on location atCastle Hohenzollern in Germany does help because the place becomes asupporting role.
Ever since "Chronicle," Dane DeHaan has been an actor that's caught myattention because I do believe that this rising star has what it takesto be great, A CURE FOR WELLNESS allows him to showcase a tease of thatpotential. His performance reminds me of Leo DiCaprio's in "ShutterIsland" and Jack Nicholson's in "The Shining" where to a certainextent, you're not certain if they'd eventually cross that line orremain on this side of the fence. A CURE FOR WELLNESS is trippy, it'sintriguing, it's filled with all kinds of odd imagery, it's definitelynot for the faint of heart. It's a sensory experience type of a film,the kind that also evokes all sorts of questions about society and whatit means to live well and the ambition for purity. But again, as I saidearlier, the final 20 minutes do go off the rails a bit, by that timethe film feels like it runs longer than it should and furthermore itgets ruined by its desire to leave us on a happy note. A CURE FORWELLNESS will find its audience, but it's an acquired taste.
