The Neon Demon (2016)
When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.


So a psychological film about the fashion world.. I'm getting Black Swan vibes from it. Elle Fanning stars as Jesse the aspiring model and there are other famous faces like Keanu Reeves, Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks and our very own Taylor Hill and Abbey Lee. It got booed at Cannes and is apparently very dark and twisted but certainly looks beautiful and I think Abbey was well casted.

Set to be released later this month.

I liked the film. It was over stylized, as it was expected of director NWR, but here it has a more appropiated reason: in the world he presents people depend on how they look, it is superficial, and hipnotic (we all want it), and also dark. That's what I liked the most about the movie.
Elle Fanning was amazing, all the girls were.
But the story... I think the last third wasn't good, I like the change on perspective and the tone, but I expected a little bit more.
