I'm in this camp. Keeping the audience in suspense about reality versus the protagonist's state of mind always feels tiresome and reductive to me. I felt the same about Take Shelter, but I know most people love that one. For the most part I enjoyed watching this, but the value evaporated for me by the end.Agreed. I thought after the baker acting it was going to take a more empathetic and grounded turn into helping her, but they continued to just use mental illness as a prop to make the audience question reality and that really irks me in media. It just feels exploitative.
Yea, I saw this a couple hours ago and the director was pointing out how even the plot points seem directly lifted from his film.
