My review of Greta, for The Tulsa Voice. This indie thriller from director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) stars Isabelle Huppert as a sociopathic older woman who stalks young New York waitress Chloë Grace Moretz. Gorgeous filmmaking can’t elevate this laughable genre exercise.
A review excerpt:
“With a premise as basic as a Hollywood scream machine…the forced plot mechanics churn forward with obligatory beats rather than psychological intrigue…occasionally punctuated by silly moments that play like a Saturday Night Live digital short parody of the genre.”
